Executive summary

to Create and deliver clean water for its customers, evoqua water technologies requires a reliable partner to handle their hazardous waste and spill response. Kleenwaste is Evoqua water technologies’ number one choice.


Every day, millions of people and thousands of companies rely on Evoqua Water Technologies to help them meet their needs for clean water. Evoqua Water Technologies specialises in the design, manufacture, installation, commissioning and service of equipment, products and treatments used throughout the water industry. Its customers include councils, water treatment plants and recreational uses, such as swimming pools and gyms.

Compliance, ethics and sustainability are part of Evoqua Water Technologies’ core business values and form the basis of all their business activities. As such, in 2014 Evoqua Water Technologies was searching for a reliable partner to help them with the collection and disposal of chemicals used in their operations and handling of all the associated paperwork to fulfil their legal obligations, or duty of care. The ideal partner also must be able to provide emergency response services to support clean up any oils or chemical spills.


Kleenwaste first held meetings with Evoqua Water Technologies in 2014 to understand the business requirements. Several site visits followed to see how Evoqua’s daily business operations worked and how it treats the water to keep it clean and suitable for use for its customers. The site visits are also a requirement for Kleenwaste in order for it to understand where and how hazardous waste is generated, handled and stored.

Based on these site visits and meetings, Kleenwaste was able to offer Evoqua Water Technologies a tailored solution for hazardous waste collections and offer onsite training to its staff on dealing with spills and how to clean up in compliance with relevant legislation. In addition, Kleenwaste is able to offer a 24/7 emergency spill response to support Evoqua Water Technologies in case of a spill.


Evoqua Water Technologies chose Kleenwaste as its partner for dealing with hazardous waste and its spill response in 2014. Since then the trust in the partnership has grown and Kleenwaste provides Evoqua Water Technologies with all required legal documentation relating to its duty of care responsibilities. Through regular, agreed collections Kleenwaste is able to create full legal compliance for Evoqua Water Technologies by handling its waste stream responsibly. Through a tailored training program for its staff, Evoqua Water Technologies has been able to create compliance to ISO 45001 and 9001 standards, which is an important feat for their core business values.

“We have worked with Kleenwaste since 2014 and during this period we have developed a mutually beneficial relationship built on trust and confidence. Kleenwaste are very proactive in helping to resolve issues with excellent response times for reactive requests. The representatives who attend site are excellent, knowledgeable and friendly and always go the extra mile to help.” – Alex Clifford, EHS Manager Evoqua Water Technologies
