New specialist division at Tudor Griffiths Group
Company merges its recycling, skip hire and renewable energy services into a single division
SHROPSHIRE-based Tudor Griffiths have unveiled their newly formed TG Enviro division – formerly known as TG Waste Services – to offer a fully integrated waste-management service in the market.
Led by Kevin Gardiner (pictured), an environmental specialist with over 35 years’ experience in the industry, the new service is made up of TG Renewable Energy, TG Skip Hire and TG Recycling. All three arms of the division will be working closely together to achieve TG Enviro’s aim of minimizing waste going to landfill.
Mr Gardiner said: ‘This is an extremely exciting for us at TG Enviro as the complete restructure of the division has given us an excellent opportunity to review our services and procedures, and our approach to sustainable and renewable energy.
‘We already have a comprehensive environmental policy in place, but the new-look division will help us to take an even stronger stance and ensure all our services meet the very highest environmental standards.’
As part of their commitment to increasing the amount of recycling of incoming waste at their Wood Lane site, TG Enviro previously invested £1.5 million in a state-of-the-art materials recycling facility (MRF).
‘Our MRF plant is the largest and most advanced in Shropshire and the vast majority of the waste we process is recycled, including wood, bricks, metal, paper, cardboard and ferrous metal,’ commented Mr Gardiner.
‘So, only a small percentage of the waste that comes into our MRF actually goes to landfill – but even that is put to good use, as it produces methane which we capture to help produce the electricity that powers the plant, with any left over being exported back to the National Grid.’
