Metro Rod Swindon presents environmental responsibility survey

Drain unblocking London download

At Metro Rod Swindon drain care we are increasingly aware of our environmental responsibilities when performing drain care and maintenance for Property Managers, Facilities Managers, businesses and residents in Swindon and right across the Thames Valley from Swindon and Marlborough, through Hungerford, Newbury and Reading and on to Maidenhead, Slough, Windsor, Ascot and Bracknell.

Examples of how we try and work in an environmentally conscious way when unblocking, surveying and repairing your drains include :

  • disposing of waste material removed from site drainage systems correctly
  • Modernising our fleet of drainage vans to reduce emissions
  • scheduling our work carefully so as to reduce unnecessary travel miles and the associated carbon footprint
  • Recycling materials wherever possible

In recent years every business management team and every individual have become more and more conscious of the need to behave responsibly in order to preserve our fragile environment. This heightened awareness has resulted in many householders adopting environmentally friendly behaviours such as recycling household rubbish, reducing usage of single-use plastics and, most recently, beginning a trend to electric vehicles. There has, thankfully for those of us involved with blocked drains in Swindon, Wiltshire and the Thames Valley, also been a recent movement away from using the non-soluble wet-wipes which are responsible for so many of the blocked drains, blocked toilets and blocked sinks which we unblock across the region.

Intriguingly though there appears to be a difference, however, between the behaviours which people adopt at home and those which are seen in workplaces. This obviously has serious implications for our environment  considering that many people spend half their waking hours at work !  To investigate this conundrum Metro Rod has recently overseen research involving over 2,000 people employed in the UK so as to help understand this issue and produce some suggestions for how employers can ensure they are behaving with General Workplace Responsibility.
