Mitie Acquires Cliniwaste

Mitie Acquires Cliniwaste
10 October 2023

Mitie has acquired healthcare waste disposal company Cliniwaste to bolster its clinical waste management provision.

Cliniwaste, which specialises in treating plastic waste generated by the NHS and pharmaceutical manufacturers, turning it in to a reusable resource. Operating out of two UK sites in Nottingham and Bradford, Cliniwaste disposes of items such as hospital gowns, gloves, face masks, and other single-use plastics. The waste is then recycled into clinical waste bags and containers used in healthcare environments. 

Mitie has several existing contracts with NHS Trusts throughout the UK, and will now be able to offer enhanced clinical waste management services. In addition, Mitie will also have the opportunity to expand into other sectors that currently send plastic waste to landfill, such as universities, care homes and water utilities.

Cliniwaste colleagues, including Managing Director Peter Wightwick, will be joining Mitie’s Waste business.

Michael Taylor, Managing Director, Mitie Waste and Environmental, said: “At Mitie our philosophy is ‘resource, not waste’. Cliniwaste will expand Mitie’s ability to provide sustainable waste management solutions that embrace the circular economy, while also opening opportunities to bring this innovative waste management treatment to new industries. Having already worked closely together for several years, we look forward to working with the Cliniwaste team to deliver safe and sustainable clinical waste services across the UK’s healthcare sector and beyond.”

Peter Wightwick, Managing Director, Cliniwaste, added: “As one of the UK’s leading waste businesses, and already a close customer of ours, Mitie is a natural home for Cliniwaste to enable us to flourish and grow. By combining our unique expertise and niche capabilities with Mitie’s stature and position in the UK’s waste sector, we will be able to support more of the UK’s healthcare industry in their decarbonisation ambitions.”
