FORGE ADD A NEW TRUCK TO THE FLEET

Posted on: 17/05/2017

Here at Forge Waste & Recycling we are pleased to announce that we have just added a new truck to our fleet, the second vehicle of Forge’s which has been supplied by FAUN Zoeller.

The truck will help us to maintain service levels for current Forge customers and our ever-increasing customer base, as we take on new clients and expand our service area.

The new truck is a Mercedes Antos with a Euro 6 engine and rear steer. It is fitted with a Faun Variopress smooth-sided refuse collection body.

We have added the following technology to the new truck, to help improve the data it can gather, as well as to boost its Health and Safety standards while it’s on the road:

  • A VWS Enviroweigh: a bin weighing system (Trading Standards approved) with Getac tablet and cradle.
  • A GPS vehicle tracking system supplied by RAM Tracking.
  • A Brigade 4 camera system with constant 360 degree real time video recording and 500GB hard drive, fitted by SM UK

We look forward to sharing the truck with you over the next week, and the coming years!

FORGE CLEANED UP AT THE ROYAL BRITISH LEGION MAJOR SERIES EVENT IN LEEDS!

Posted on: 29/03/2016

On Sunday 20th March, Forge Recycling provided waste management services at a fantastic event called The Royal British Legion Major Series. The run took place at Bramham Park in Leeds, and it was great fun.

This event features 5k and 10k courses, full of obstacles such as hills, woods, mud, rivers, and bogs. It was exciting to witness all of this, however we went a step further than that, and some team members signed up to join in with the event. As you can see in the photo below, they were very muddy and happy by the end of the race!

FORGE HAVE BEEN AWARDED TOP ACCREDITATION FROM SAFECONTRACTOR

Posted on: 04/11/2015

 

We are delighted to announce that Forge Recycling have been awarded accreditation from Safecontractor for our commitment to achieving excellence in health and safety.

 Safecontractor is a leading third party accreditation scheme which recognises very high standards in health and safety management amongst UK contractors.

Our application for Safecontractor accreditation was driven by the need for a uniform standard across the business.

Our Transport Manager, Adam Bailey said, “Forge Recycling are delighted with the accreditation.  We are committed to Health and Safety and always strive to improve our practices and policies” 

 John Kinge, technical director of Safecontractor said, "Major organisations simply cannot afford to run the risk of employing contractors who are not able to prove that they have sound health and safety policies in place."

"More companies need to understand the importance of adopting good risk management in the way that Forge Recycling has done. The firm’s high standard has set an example which hopefully will be followed by other companies within the sector."
