Recycling specialist Enva will supply hazardous waste management services across bus operator Metroline’s 16 sites in Greater London and south Hertfordshire.
Metroline runs 1,556 buses within this region under contract to Transport for London and is a subsidiary of the multinational ComfortDelGro Corporation.
Enva said the contract win sees the company “advance its position at the forefront of waste and recycling services for the UK automotive and commercial service sector”.
The provider enables waste to be recycled into new products, as secondary materials in manufacturing or reused in sustainable energy generation. Annually, this equates to 1.2 million tonnes of raw materials recovered from waste and saves 308,000 tonnes in CO2 emissions – equivalent to offsetting over 96,860 tonnes of fossil fuels or about 743,044 barrels of oil – around half of the oil consumed on an average day nationwide.
Trevor Lawlor, Enva’s national sales director, said: “The service we provide optimises recycling whilst also managing cost. Improving environmental performance enhances your brand and makes good commercial sense.”
Sarah Rider, Metroline’s facilities and premises manager, added: “We fully recognise our responsibility to operate an environmentally sustainable service. I’m confident Enva’s experience in the sector will support us in further reducing our environmental impact through recovering and reusing the waste we produce.''
