Waste Spectrum Featured in Pig & Poultry Magazine

Incineration, just like thorough cleaning and disinfection, is at the heart of any robust biosecurity programme and more and more pig and poultry producers are moving away from using the ‘knacker man’ and towards disposing of their own carcases through burning.
“I’m still surprised that there are pig and poultry producers still sending their fallen stock and butchery waste off farm via this route,” says Waste Spectrum’s MD Neil Rossiter.
“The industry is becoming more biosecurity conscious as far as the knacker man is concerned and quite right too. What diseases are lurking on their clothing, their boots and their lorry when it drives onto your unit? It’s a risky business, in my view.”
