We love seeing our apprentices making waves in the industry.
Wade Peek was recently named Plastics Apprentice of the Year, is definitely one to watch. With two qualifications under his belt, he’s been earmarked as a future plastics industry leader.

He hopes to one day start his own manufacturing business and says: "I really want to pass on what I have learnt to support apprentices in their training. I also want to be able to teach people outside of the plastics industry about what we do, as I truly believe we can't solve any of the really important environmental issues that surround plastic unless as many people as possible understand it."

Safe H20 Central are now operating in your area. The Safe H20 process retains and purifies your precious water, meaning there is no requirement to purchase replacement water.

The mobile unit is equipped with state-of-the-art nano-filtration. Tank sediment is vacuumed from the bottom of the tank and the balance of the water is cycled through the system removing pesticides and other contaminants to make your drinking water safe. The purified water is returned to the tank ready for use.

For more detailed information about our process please visit www.safeh2o.co.nz

The Ministry of Health recommends water tanks are inspected and cleaned annually. Call Hamish on 027 2766950 or email central@safeh2o.co.nz for pricing & more information or to book a tank clean.
