  • Waste Management - Crawford Street, Birmingham
  • In 2022, Birmingham is set to host the Commonwealth Games, the 3rd time the games have been hosted in the United Kingdom. As a result, the area is receiving a large amount of inward investment to get the city and the surround areas ready for the tournament.

    One of the beneficiaries of this funding is The Canal & Rivers Trust, who have been provided with a significant grant to improve the appearance, safety and usability of the surround canal networks.

    One of the major areas of improvement the Canal & Rivers Trust is undertaking is the removal of the extensive fly tipping along the canal network.

  • Over the years, local businesses have taken advantage of a low walled area adjacent to the Canal, and unfortunately created a significant body of waste including tyres, white goods and industrial waste.

    A 4 man crew was deployed to Crawford Street for a 4 week period to carry out full clearance of fly tipped waste. A 40ft workboat was utilised, to take waste along the canal network to a suitable waste transfer location, and our 32t grab wagon to remove other bulk waste from the area. Due to the incline of the working area, only rope access qualified operatives were tasked with carrying out the clearances.

    A total of 193tonnes of waste was eventually removed from site.
