Ford award for waste policy

Ford Motor Company has been named the 'Best Performing Corporate Organisation' at the Mayor of London's Green Procurement Code awards.

The award is in recognition of its ‘outstanding contribution to materials recycling’. During 2005 the company, which employs around 14,000 people in the UK including 4,500 at its 473-acre Dagenham estate, has purchased sufficient recycled-content products to stop 21,000 tonnes of waste being disposed of in landfill sites.

One of the Ford initiatives cited was a section of Dagenham estate roadway which had rubber granules from shredded tyres added to the bitumen and aggregate, using around 300 tyres.
