Waste management - recycling

Julie Danby made this Freedom of Information request to Network Rail Limited

This request has been closed to new correspondence. Contact us if you think it should be reopened.

We're waiting for Julie Danby to read recent responses and update the status.

Dear Network Rail Limited,

Please you let me know what percentage of waste collected on the train and the stations you manage is recycled. If this figure is not available, please could you provide information on how you collect the rubbish to enable it to be recycled.

Please could I also see any policies you have linked to recycling waste.

Yours faithfully,

Julie

Dear Julie Danby

 

Information request

 

Your correspondence was received by Network Rail on Wednesday 18 August
2021. I can confirm that your request is being processed under the terms
of the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA)/Environmental Information
Regulations (EIR). I will endeavour to respond to you as soon as possible
and in any event by Thursday 16 September 2021.

 

I understand you are asking us to provide the following information:

 

1. What percentage of waste collected on trains and at stations is
recycled?

2. Please could you provide information on how you collect the rubbish for
it to be recycled?

3. Please could you provide any policies Network Rail have linked to
recycling waste?

 

Please can you clarify whether you would be interested in any of Network
Rail’s policies on the recycling of industrial waste arising from
infrastructure works or whether your request is wholly focused on the
recycling of personal waste at Network Rail managed stations?

 

I thought it might be helpful to mention that I think it unlikely we will
hold any information on waste management for trains and non-Network Rail
managed stations. This is because Network Rail does not own or operate
passenger and freight trains. The trains are run by Train Operating
Companies (TOCs) and Freight Operating Companies (FOCs). We do own and
operate 20 of the larger stations, the remainder are managed by TOCs. For
further information please see the following page on our website:
[1]https://www.networkrail.co.uk/who-we-are...

 

On occasion we may need to consult with third parties about requests, in
line with the recommendations in the Code of Practice issued by the
Cabinet Office.

 

If you have any queries please do not hesitate to contact me.

 

Please remember to quote your reference number in all future
communications.

Dear Tanya,

Thanks for getting back to me so promptly. I’m just interested in how personal waste is collected and recycled into the stations National Rail managed.
