We care about the environment, that's why we offset our carbon impact via Forest Carbon, a UK based tree planting scheme. Our dedicated patch of land ensures we leave as small a carbon footprint as possible - not a great big stomp!
Mitigating Our Carbon Footprint
In 2018 we joined forces with Forest Carbon, accredited by the Woodland Carbon Code to grow forestation on 13.5 acres of land dedicated to Fresh Start Waste Services. This planting scheme saw over 7,500 trees planted which, once mature, will offset 2,125 tonnes of carbon emissions.
The project Fresh Start support is based North Westative woodland at The Gangway, Penrith, Cumbria.Click Here To See Our Woodland
Carbon Conscious Vehicles
Whilst carbon mitigation is worthwhile endeavour, we feel all businesses operating HGV vehicles have a responsibility to the environment to make more direct changes to the way we operate in order to reduce our footprint.
That’s why we have invested in a Euro 6 compliant greener fleet of vehicles. This includes split body vehicles which allow us to collect multiple waste streams in one journey; less fuel, less cost, less carbon.
Forward thinking businesses like Fresh Start are making a significant contribution UK's Net Zero targets. When we visited the woodland creation project together last year it was clear how committed they were to playing their part in tackling climate change.
