Environmental considerations are an important part of Securabike’s operation in the UK. The greatest contribution from Securabike is to see the number of bikes ridden daily increase. More and more commuters are using cycles throughout the UK for journeys for work, school, shopping and leisure. In London in particular this is taking cars off the road which is a benefit to the environment and in particular air pollution; whether it be particle pollutants within a city or carbon dioxide in the greater atmosphere. So in this respect, our greatest contribution is to be a part of the trend of the growing use of bicycles and we are proud of our small contribution to that end.
Securabike is conscious of its local environmental requirements and in particular related to the construction industry which is a large client. To that end, Securabike maintains a number work practices related to the minimization of harm to the environment; whether that be air, noise, or water for example. Of importance are two considerations which are very common for us being metal recycling as most of our product metallic and our installation methods. In relation to metal recycling, Securabike is a recycler of waste material from our factory and we see zero waste for metal as it is either reused in product or alternatively recycled through our local metal recycling suppliers. Of consideration is that the product Securabike manufactures is metallic so it can easily be recycled.
During installation it is common for our bicycle parking racks, rails, cages and lockers to be fixed using masonry anchors. When drilling or cutting concrete, there is a small amount of concrete dust which can be harmful to our waterways. It is therefore important that installation crews are equipped wetvacs so that they are able to properly collect and dispose of the concrete dust related to this activity.
Securabike is extremely conscious of its environmental requirements and considers itself to be working towards environmentally sustainable policies throughout its business in the UK. Further details of these policies are available upon request.
