    The time was the mid-’80s, and in this era of rapid change, John Homewood had the circumspection to preempt practical solutions for the Medical Waste Disposal sector.

    “In those days AIDS and hepatitis were becoming an issue and I could foresee that at some point, but I didn’t know when, that attitudes on Clinical Waste landfilling would change,” John says.

    As Chairman, John now oversees the Ace Waste Group and ensures that Ace Waste continues with its legacy of providing the safest and most environmentally sound disposal of Clinical and Related wastes.
