Environmental Services

Reducing the impact on the local, national and global environment is priority for John Robson Metals. Part of our role is to ensure that the sites owned by our clients are not impacted by our works. We also aim to reuse or recycle up to 90% of waste generated from our activities on site. We use a variety of methods to strip down components to their base parts.

Fully licensed disposal

Our Stump Cross Works site is fully licensed with the Environment Agency to receive all redundant equipment and waste likely to be encountered in our Dismantling / Demolition / Clean Up work. Whenever possible these unwanted goods are recycled, with 96% of all materials received being recovered in the form of metals, oils, aggregate, wood and other materials.
The use of this recycled material by industry helps to preserve the Worlds resources. We are fully compliant with all current legislations and requirements. The key area of our environmental services is our ability to provide the following within a substation environment.
