Pellows have been in business for 60 years and still is family run. We are the oldest liquid waste company in Cornwall, and we understand more than anyone the sewage crisis Cornwall faces.


The outlets for disposing of sewage waste in Cornwall are dependent on one company which is often in crisis.  Pellows is trying to help them by taking some of the pressure off by creating their own sewage treatment works.  This will enable other companies, similar to Pellows, to be able to come and dispose of their sewage waste. This will enable them to keep running and other reliant businesses open.


Pellows has recently been successful in securing SPF funding which will enable them to set up their own sewage treatment works.  The project includes the construction of 100 sqm office, storage area, offsite storage yard  (457.56 sqm) and purchase of specialist equipment for the processing of effluent treatment.


Our long-term aim is to help other companies with the disposal of sewage waste and for us to recycle the waste into a reusable product.
