Firm goes green with truck recycling

A West Midlands’ commercial truck sales specialist is boosting its green credentials while adding a new string to the range of services on offer.   C&W Commercials Ltd, which is based on a purpose-built site in Wednesbury, has just been granted planning permission to dismantle used trucks for the resale of parts. That means that, alongside used truck sales and servicing, the firm can now offer good and reusable parts and also dispose of any waste materials in an environmentally-friendly way. 

Darren Garland, who was promoted from Sales Manager to Director of the firm in January, explains: “With planning permission granted by Walsall Council, our industry professionals can now dismantle trucks in a clean indoor environment.  “Every good part will be labelled and shelved in our centre, which specialises in recycled DAF parts. That offers savings of up to 65 per cent on the price of new parts, offering businesses a cost-effective way of keeping their trucks on the road.

“It also means we can use local companies to dispose of waste metal, batteries, oils and liquids in an environmentally-friendly way.” Now in its 18th year, C&W is keen to promote its image as a caring company. Darren adds: “We aim to provide a clean, friendly service and are keen to look after the environment, as we understand the impact trucks can have.

This new service gives us the chance to reuse and recycle parts, and dispose of them in a responsible way, with the added bonus of helping customers save money too.”

It’s the latest move in the firm’s plans to reduce its environmental impact, joining a string of initiatives which include going digital, using less paper, and recycling packaging and waste.
