Tube Lines wins award for going green

Tube Lines was last week rewarded for it success in recycling and sustainable waste management.

It won the Waste Management Initiative in the Commercial and Public Sector gong at the Excellence in Recycling and Waste Management Awards.

The firm said the award recognises its commitment to reduce material consumption and disposal of wastes to landfill. Tube Lines has made a commitment to reduce its carbon footprint by 5,000t of CO2 by the end of the year and has implemented various recycling initiatives - including general paper, construction waste and office recycling - to help hit that target.

The company has also invested in a vehicle to collect paper waste from its 255 trains, 100 stations, six depots and three offices for recycling. Last year a total of 1,714t of paper was recycled and the money saved from landfill costs was given the company’s Community Support Fund which supplemented employee charity donations by £22,700.

Tube Lines head of distribution services Philip Constable said: “Good environmental practice makes good business sense and I am really pleased that Tube Lines’ efforts to drive through sustainable waste management initiatives have been recognised in this way.”
