We at Inex take our commitment to the environment very seriously and are continually reviewing our policies and procedures to improve our impact.
Our Environmental Policy
Environmental Management Certification
Below is just a sampling of ways in which we work to reduce our carbon footprint:
- We have a wide-ranging recycling policy which includes stringent separation of everyday office and yard waste.
- Compost Recycling
- Food Waste: As part of our everyday waste recycling programme, we separate all food waste.
- Grounds Waste: Additionally, we mulch plantings which have been cleared as part of our grounds maintenance servicing.
- All of these all-natural materials are added to our on-site compost heap which is then, when sufficiently decomposed, utilised as part of our fertilizer programme.
- Road Works
- Asphalt Recycling: When we have broken down asphalt in preparation for repairs or resurfacing work, we work with a plant which takes the debris and recycles it into reusable asphalt.
- Tar Recycling: When completing tarring works, our first priority is to measure as close in approximately to what is needed. With that being said, it is common to still have a bit of leftover tar which has gone “cold”. When this happens, we work with the same plant which recycles the tar for re-sale.
- Company Fleet
- Smaller Vehicles: We are committed to utilising smaller, lighter vehicles as and when possible to ensure we produce the lowest possible emissions and utilise the lowest possible petrol. For example, instead of utilising 18-tonne winter maintenance gritters, we have sourced pre-wetting gritting systems which can be fitted onto a standard pick-up truck whilst providing the same, if not better, level of coverage.
- Servicing of Vehicles: Our Fleet and equipment is regularly serviced and maintained in order to ensure the lowest possible emissions and to maximise economy.
