It is our policy to minimise our impact on the environment wherever practicably possible by ensuring that environmental issues and awareness remain at the forefront of every decision we make.
Key points of our policy:
Cheshire County Removals promotes recycling or re-use of packing materials. We offer a free collection service of used boxes and where possible we reuse the boxes. If the boxes cannot be reused, we recycle them.
We dispose of unusable waste in a safe manner that minimises any long-term environmental impact.
All the cardboard we use is biodegradable; all the polystyrene packaging we use is also biodegradable.
We ensure all company vehicles are designed and maintained to give the maximum fuel efficiency and minimum emissions.
All our employees, suppliers and contractors work with us to prevent pollution and minimise the impact on the environment.
When planning routes, we aim to maximise efficiency and therefore minimise the impact on the environment. Wherever possible we plan back loads and consider likely congestion and different times of the day when deciding on a route.
Where we are required to dispose of goods, we choose to only use waste transfer stations that recycle.
We ensure that all company vehicles are well maintained by way of daily inspections and ten weekly full mechanical inspections to make sure they are operating efficiently. These checks also allow us to take preventative maintenance, which helps minimise our environmental impact.
By ordering large quantities of required materials and storing them at our depots we can reduce the amount of deliveries we receive and therefore help our suppliers reduce their impact on the environment. We only choose suppliers that maintain good environmental practices.
