In the space of a few short years, WGS Waste Management has established itself as a leading provider of clinical, hygiene and offensive waste services together with recycling solutions for businesses throughout the South East of England.
Founded by husband and wife team, Paul and Louise Large in 2013, it seemed a natural progression to form the company, given the respective career paths of the two Directors. Paul was firmly based in the clinical and waste recycling industry and Louise had her roots in beauty and fashion sector, with its strong connections to the field of clinical practice and hygiene products.
Our mission has been clear right from the outset – to offer a one-stop waste management operation which is totally professional and completely transparent. That belief has never wavered from the day we started with a single van.
Our base in the heart of the Kent countryside, midway between Tonbridge and Tunbridge Wells, is a constant reminder of why we are in this business and what we believe in – being clean, tidy, environmentally friendly and in harmony with nature.
The company headquarters are surrounded by green and pleasant land, which makes us even more determined to protect our environment - and to help others do the same by keeping waste in safe hands, under control and responsibly disposed of.
Today, we are an expanding company, taking on staff, creating employment and widening our circle of clients.
We are passionate about what we do and will represent your business professionally and with respect.
Above all, we won’t become a faceless organisation. We will always remain a friendly, approachable, family run concern – where personal service continues to matter.
Prior to establishing WGS, Paul enjoyed a varied background in quality and production management and sales, including 10 years hands-on experience in the clinical waste sector. After a successful career with Initial, Paul went in to business with Wastegone.com in Manchester and helped grow that company, before leaving and setting up WGS Clinical Services in 2013. From the outset, Paul’s intention was to offer clients an honest, reliable, and flexible service and, as the business has expanded, he still possesses that same can-do, enthusiastic approach.
Louise has a sales, recruitment and design background and has successfully run her own business in the beauty sector for over 10 years, trading as a professional makeup and hair artist, predominantly in the bridal industry. Her interests have always been closely aligned with the clinical and healthcare sectors – which are both an integral part of the WGS business – and Louise’s close association with this area of the industry has helped establish WGS as a highly respected operator.
Martin has a diverse background, from working as an electrical contractor before moving into fleet and service management where high end service delivery was a priority. This experience proved to be a perfect fit for the role of Service Manager at WGS and Martin has become a highly valued member of the team since joining us in 2016. He is a familiar and key point of contact for many WGS clients, ensuring that our service delivery runs efficiently and is tailored to the requirements of each specific client – where fast response is the order of the day.
