Removals in London – Environmental Policy
Removals in London are committed to leading the industry in minimising the impact of its activities on the environment.
The key points of our strategy to achieve this are:
1. Minimisation of waste
We will always promote the recycling and re-use of our packing materials. We offer a free collection service of used boxes and we reuse the boxes wherever possible. If we cannot reuse the boxes we recycle them.
2. Minimisation of toxic emissions
Our routes are planned with consideration to the environment. By planning routes that maximise efficiency we can minimise our impact on the environment. We plan back loads wherever possible and consider potential issues like congestion and the best time of day to when deciding on a route.
Our vehicles meet or exceed Euro 3 emissions standards. By ensuring these standards are met this reduces our vehicles impact on the environment.
We order and store our materials in bulk wherever possible to reduce the amount of deliveries we receive and therefore help our suppliers reduce their impact on the environment. We only choose suppliers with good environmental policies and practices.
3. Active Promotion of Recycling
When we are required to dispose of goods we always use waste transfer stations that recycle.
4. Considering the effect of our fleet on the environment
Whenever we purchase a new vehicle, one of our prime considerations is the the vehicles impact on the environment.
All of our vehicles are well maintained and inspected daily and have regular full mechanical inspections to make sure they are operating at maximum efficiently. This preventative maintenance helps us to minimise the effect our vehicles have on the environment.
