MAN enough for the job…

Just arrived this morning, our new MAN Euro 6 waste tanker which has a 2500 gallon waste capacity and 1000 gallon clean (non drinking) water capacity.

The vehicle has a pressure washer and is fully Crossrail compliant meaning it has all the modern safety features to allow use on busy Crossrail sites in London.

This includes a system which auto senses pedestrians or cyclists passing in the nearside of the vehicle, the driver is alerted with a tone and sidescan cameras activate so he can see who or what is in the blind spot.

We’ve a short video presentation on Crossrail compliance which you can watch.

We receive a lot of e mail and calls about our distinctive Tardis fleet and now it just increased by one.

 

Just like the universe, Tardis is expanding (again).

Dateline July 27 2015 – Brownhills Walsall

Tardis Environmental Brownhills

Several busy Tardis departments sat themselves down in their brand new home on the edge of leafy Brownhills common in the West Midlands.

The hire desk team, transport and IT departments set up their hi tech kit in airy large offices and will soon be joined by accounts leaving the depots at Fryers Road Bloxwich and Cannock Road New Invention for operations, Health & Safety HR and management teams.

Apart from a little teething problem with the newly established cloud phone system on our first day (for which we apologise if you tried to call us), the move went smoothly.

We’ve loads of space, a posh reception and meeting rooms.

Tardis Reception

Our telephone number is still the same whomever it is you wish to speak with (0800 731 0589), as we can transfer calls between the branches. Did get a request from a driver to open the security gate at Fryers Road which was a little difficult from 7 miles away, but we’re working on a fix for that (and maybe we lie a little)…

There’s more than one way to help the environment!

Here at Tardis Environmental we’re a really a very helpful bunch.

Last week we were rewarded a ‘Tree Certificate’.

Tardis Environmental Tree Certificate

Tardis Environmental Tree Certificate

We’ve helped plant a tree as part of the Children and Youth Initiative Plant-for-the-Planet. With the planting of trees around the world, the initiative is looking to improvethe climate crisis.

We were awarded a certificate indicating that we are actively participating in protecting our environment.  All donated trees help the children of Plant-for-the-Planet tostrive for a better climate and a better future.


In addition to our arborial awards, last week our name was also included in a petition to support a Sustainable Development Goal on water and sanitation, as part of the WaterAid campaign.  115,056 signatures were presented to the UK Government in Westminster requesting more support to ensure everyone has access to clean water and safe toilets by 2030. Dangerous toilets cost lives!

More information on the presentation of the petition at the Houses of Parliament can be seen here.

As you will all know, Tardis Environmental proudly sponsors Water Aid.

Local pages for local people…

People of the north, our new pages are just for you!

Announcing our new “northern pages” spreading the word of Tardis service near and far.

Seriously, our new depot which opened in Warrington a couple of months ago, strengthened the level of service we can supply into the north, north west and over to Yorkshire in fact.

We’ve given the pages local numbers and developed them in line with the districts they serve, giving a local feel but offering a sterling service from a national company.

As part of the development process, we sought help from local photographers who gave permission for their photos to be used on the pages via Flickr where we too also have a photostream, it’s a very friendly community. In fact we had a bit of a surprise when we discovered we knew one of the photographers who allowed us to use two of his super night shots.

We’ll be monitoring the response to our new localised feel and if people like it, will expand it to encompass the other areas our depots cover, so go visit and let us know what you think.

If you’re foraging online and take a look at our new Flickr stream, you’ll see we’ve a few submitted photos by shutterbugs around the country who spot our toilets and vehicles on site, on the roads even on telly.

We’re a generous bunch here at Tardis towers and it’s not been unknown for us to raid the goodies cabinet and send out tokens of our appreciation so, keep your eyes peeled Tardis Taggers.
