Rail Service Gets Green Light

As part of our ongoing commitment to reduce our environmental impact both locally and nationally, we’re now a step closer to our aim of transporting the majority of the waste we recycle via rail.

The disused Rossington Colliery rail line runs right past our site and it’s always been part of our long-term strategy to utilise the line as much as possible; it’s one for the reasons we chose to locate here in the first place as we immediately saw the potential for the business. There are stringent processes in place by our dedicated team to ensure every H&S matter is covered in this key operation.

Working in conjunction with Network Rail and DB Schenker, it will mean that we can dramatically reduce the number of lorries we have coming in and out of the site and travelling on the region’s roads. Just one train will be able to carry 1,000 tonnes compared to just 25 tonnes one lorry can hold. Emissions will be reduced and it’s a much more environmentally friendly way of doing business! Exciting plans ahead for us in this area. Watch this space!
