Our Heritage

Our roots can traced back to 2008, when our parent company Vetspeed Ltd diversified into the specialist waste sector having secured unique licencing at our 7 acre site near Cambridge.

Novus quickly established itself as a leading player in the specialist waste sector, initially operating as a clinical waste service provider to the veterinary industry, before expanding into the healthcare and secure destruction markets working on behalf of various government agencies, local authorities and the NHS.

The business experienced rapid growth through the following years and invested heavily in people, innovation and site infrastructure to ensure we maintained best practice and continued adding value to our customers by further evolving sustainable & cost-effective waste processing methods.

In more recent years we have successfully integrated and expanded into other market sectors and continue to experience significant growth along with unrivalled investment from our parent company IVC Evidensia, who have a global presence and the very highest of corporate standards to adhere too.


Waste management includes all actions taken to handle waste from its origins to its disposal. At the heart of our service is compliance to UK and EU regulations. Our portfolio of accreditations, permits and licences allows us to transfer and treat a wide range of waste streams.
