UK Waste Industry's first Mobile Phone App

27 October 2011

Waste management specialists Cleansing Service Group (CSG) have launched the UK waste industry’s first mobile phone App which allows CSG and its customers to communicate quickly using the latest digital technology.

The App allows CSG customers and other users working from any location to instantly categorise their waste by giving them access to the European Waste Catalogue (EWC) codes. This could be particularly useful in the event of a spill to ensure the paperwork is accurate and compliant.

The EWC is a list of descriptions that classifies waste into categories according to how these wastes have been produced. They are required to be used when completing duty of care waste transfer notes and hazardous waste consignment note documentation under current legislation guidelines. Users will also have access to details of the company’s services, location, contact information and 24 hour emergency hotline.

CSG’s group business development manager, Mike Wilson, said: “The App enables those responsible for categorising wastes to have this essential information at their fingertips at all times which will assist them to make immediate decisions about handling and disposal options.

“The EWC information will be updated regularly and access to more CSG services will be added on a regular basis.”

The App is free to download from CSG’s website – www.csg.co.uk/app - and supports Blackberry, Android and iPhone platforms.

CSG runs a specialist hazardous waste treatment and recovery division and is the UK’s largest provider of domestic sewage collection and disposal services

Earlier this year it was named as one of Britain’s most successful private firms after climbing high in the Sunday Times Profit Track Top 100 league table.
