WinWeb Pitch of the Week – Waste Notes



This week’s winner of the Pitch of the Week competition is Gordon Shaw, the founder of Waste Notes. Gordon is an entrepreneur of many talents, having previously won the Pitch of the Week with his company ‘Environmentally Friendly Solutions’.

His new venture is a way of ensuring that companies transferring waste are not breaking the law when doing so. We spoke to Gordon about his business and this is what he told us:

“We recently conducted a survey on our website that showed many SMEs in the West Midlands were unaware of their legal obligation as producers, carriers, importers, exporters, dealers, processors or brokers of controlled waste.

Controlled waste is defined as “industrial, commercial or household waste.” Waste must be managed carefully by storing it properly and transferring it only to the appropriate people.

It is important to ensure that when waste is transferred, it is accompanied with a Waste Transfer Note that sufficiently describes the nature of the waste. It must also include the relevant code from the List of Wastes (previously known as the European Waste Catalogue) in order to enable its safe recovery or disposal without harming the environment.”

Gordon provides waste transfer notepads to a large number of industries. His product allows other small businesses to stay on the right side of the law and fulfil their duty of care to others whilst also protecting the environment from further harm.
