Our products are made from clean newspaper, water, a waterproofing agent and 50 years of experience. They start off as a wet mixture, are formed and are then dried to make a wide range of disposable containers. They’re designed to be used once, then disposed of in a machine called a macerator. Using our unique SmartFlow™ technology the macerator then breaks down the container into tiny particles similar to toilet paper, and it is then rapidly flushed down the drain.
Thousands of healthcare facilities around the world trust us to supply our ground-breaking single-use system to them every day. In 2017, we won ‘Overall Supplier of the Year’ at the NHS Excellence in Supply Awards, an accolade which we feel demonstrates how strongly we feel about being dependable to healthcare facilities whose focus should be on their patients, and not on the reliability of their supplier
