RTS Waste prepares for the annual visit to the races…
The Epsom Derby is Britain’s richest horse race. Taking place May 31st and June 1st this year. RTS Waste will be present for the third year in a row providing 200 waste containers from 120, 240 and 1100 Litre Euro bins, Rear End Loaders and Portable Skip Compactors. Since the early 16th Century the preparations for refreshments of the visitors has been on a gigantic scale. Epsom Derby is well patronized, owing to the easy distance from London, invitations extend to nobles, heroes and bucks to the turf. Best dresses and hats for the fair ladies, top tips for horses and RTS Waste present fresh paint on waste containers and smart uniforms for the drivers. We recorded some 108 tonnes of waste was collected over a 5 day period, this is going to be processed through our new Material Recovery Facility this year and we will endeavour to meet our zero land target where Dry Mixed Recycled (DMR) waste is concerned.
Wag and Drag reduces Carbon Footprint
The history of Epsom portrays carriages converging on this village from every quarter of the compass, with approach roads also full of pedestrians approaching the vast, breezy expanse of grass covered hills now referred to as the Epsom Downs. In 2013 the public’s eye is very much focused on the environmental issues and reducing the carbon emissions that surround the logistics of such major events. RTS Waste have a new Skip lorry that utilises a wag and drag trailer which will half the number of journeys to drop off and collect containers.
Epsom Race Course is not only home to the worlds greatest flat race, it prides itself on a professional facility venue for Conferences, Exhibitions, Weddings and Location Filming. Excellent service and efficiency is appreciated by visitors enjoying a fantastic time. RTS Waste provide unbeaten quality of service for all their customers, this is why we are invited back year on year.
