Cleansing Service Group

Edgar “Bunny” Hart started this sewage-collection business in 1934 when he purchased a second-hand waste tanker vehicle for £5. In 1990 the business started to diversify into industrial and hazardous-waste processing by acquiring niche operators, and today the company services 70,000 domestic and commercial customers from 19 sites across Britain. The Hart family still own the majority of the company, which is now led by Paul Quigley, managing director. Profits increased 56% a year from £857,000 in 2005 to £3.3m in 2008.
