“By getting Leigh involved in our trade effluent data management and liaising with the regulator, Scottish Water, on our behalf, he managed to spot that our efforts to improve treatment on site meant that our most recent sample results had significantly improved. These improvements had the potential to save us money in our trade effluent charges so Leigh put a report in to Scottish Water and they agreed that the data could be reviewed. The savings will continue over the next 18 months saving us around £3750 in total as long as the data continues to be as good. These savings are a lot more than it costs to have Leigh on board.”
