Waste team celebrates clean water achievement

14 May 2021 by CSG

As part of Water Saving Week, national waste management company has celebrated its recycling achievements – cleaning enough water in 2020 to fill the Albert Hall four times over.

CSG, which operates 27 facilities across the UK, processes a wide range of waste streams with the aim of recovering vital resources – and water is the most essential of them all.

Antony Gerken, CSG permitting and compliance manager, said: “Despite the pandemic, our domestic and industrial waste collection and processing services continued as normal, ensuring the maximum volume of water is safely recycled.

“In 2020 we were able to clean a massive 335,057m3 of effluent which was then sent on to the water companies for further treatment prior to release back into the system.

“This is enough to fill the Albert Hall an astonishing four times, or 134 Olympic-sized swimming pools!

“Alternatively, we could fill 18,450 of CSG’s 4,000 gallon tankers, which would stretch a distance of 133 miles if they travelled in convoy.”

CSG provides a full domestic sewage service through a nationwide network of engineers and operatives, from the design and installation of septic tanks and water treatment facilities to ongoing maintenance and emptying.

The company also provides fully accredited removal, transportation and treatment of drainage waste, interceptor clearance, and specialist lagoon and pond cleaning, with all activities contributing to the conservation of valuable water.

CSG, which operates from 27 sites across the UK, is one of the largest privately-owned industrial and domestic environmental waste management groups in Britain. CSG employs more than 550 people nationally, supporting a national network of waste treatment and recycling service centres.

The company is fully accredited by British Water and its operatives and engineers are UKPIA accredited, giving customers complete peace of mind that any work carried out is fully compliant, and with health and safety as a top priority.
