As the UK becomes more reliant on renewable energy for power generation, the drive to reduce the amount of wood disposed to landfill has increased dramatically. A.W. Jenkinson Transport plays a key role in transporting all grades of recycled wood around the UK, both for biomass power generation and manufacturing. A.W. Jenkinson Transport collects both processed and unprocessed recyclable wood products, from a variety of sources, including skip yards, material recycling facilities, civic amenity sites and sawmills. After further processing if required, the products are then delivered nationwide to power stations, panel board mills and other manufacturers.
A.W. Jenkinson Transport’s involvement with customers in the recycling industry is not restricted to the collection and delivery of recyclable wood. The Company is also a major logistics provider for several leading recycling and reclamation businesses. A.W. Jenkinson Transport regularly transports used tins, paper, plastics and scrap metal to mixed recycling facilities assisting with the drive to reduce the amount of waste going to landfill. A.W. Jenkinson Transport is also involved in the transportation of RDF (refuse derived fuel) away from UK landfill to energy recovery facilities throughout the UK.
Winter is an incredibly busy period for the UK’s oldest working mine, 150m under the Cheshire countryside. Huge quantities of salt and grit are used on British roads every winter, much of which is mined from the deposits beneath Winsford. A.W. Jenkinson Transport’s substantial fleet of bulk tippers and walking floors offers the ideal transport resource to distribute the product around the UK.
