Us & the Environment!
From its creation, Diamond Hygiene has always aimed to be the greenest washroom services provider in the UK, and part of our ethos is to reduce our Carbon emissions and to become Carbon neutral.
We use eco-friendly products whenever possible to pursue our commitment to a safer future for our children.
As an approved licensed waste carrier, you can be sure that all waste is correctly disposed of so that your obligations under the Environmental Protection Act are met. We incinerate all waste, avoiding possible future environmental catastrophes associated with landfill or dumping at sea. Did you know that one disposable nappy can take over a million years to decompose in landfill? Energy Recovery Incineration is the most environmentally friendly option.
Diamond Hygiene will not use landfill sites to dispose of our waste. All waste products collected from client’s premises are recycled at licensed energy recovery incineration plants, reducing landfill and creating energy in the process.
We ensure all our plastic, aerosols, metals, batteries, cardboard and paper are recycled
We offer our eco feminine hygiene units that are produced from 100% recycled plastic. By choosing this style for your washroom you are helping to:

4. Recycle Waste
Recycle your waste! By having our feminine hygiene units or nappy disposal units, you are actually recycling your waste. We take it straight to our Energy Recovery Centre where it is incinerated. During the process, electricity is generated and the ashes that remain are then used as a substitue for natural aggregrate.
