XPO Logistics's expertise in the waste and recycling sector means we can not only provide the most up to date transport and logistics solutions, but we can offer our customers peace of mind that their commercial waste is handled in an effective, eco-friendly and complaint manner. Waste recycling and the environment are subjects very close to our hearts, and we are committed to boosting our customers green credentials. 

A shared commitment to the Environment 

XPO Logistics's green commitment stems from our ethos that we should do all we can to limit the impact of our activities on the environment. We continue to invest in the latest green technologies to reduce CO₂ emissions, and operate the greenest fleet in Europe, with 95% of our vehicles meeting Euro V and Euro VI specifications. We are committed to assisting our customers in a similar way, which makes us the Waste Management partner of choice to help you meet the CSR targets of your waste and recycling agenda.


Waste & Recycling

From old carpet and other green list baled waste for incineration, to cardboard packaging and plastics for breakdown and re-use, we collect all kinds of waste products from our customers. Our added value services include WEEE recycling for expired life of electrical items and reverse logistics for packaging and pallet returns. Pallet repair operations at many of our sites repair hundreds of pallets each day to ensure they are fit for purpose and re-introduced back into the supply chain as quickly as possible. 


Energy from Waste (EfW)

As well as the physical transport, our managed waste solutions handle the legal and regulatory obligations of exporting Refuse Derived Fuel (RDF) and Solid Recovered Fuel (SRF) to Europe on behalf of our customers. Our XPO Logistics waste experts provide Transfrontier Shipment (TFS) advice and plan routes to manage high volumes and daily requirements.
