Environmental management and the prevention of pollution is an integral part of the Nelson Group’s ethos
We are very aware of the importance of closely following and being continuously compliant with the ever complicated and changing legislation. We annually set and regularly review our objectives and targets to reduce our environmental impact and to ensure environmental best practice on all of our sites and workplaces. We continually strive for zero to landfill.
All the work we undertake is carried out in line with job and site-specific environmental risk assessments and method statements, ensuring that our carbon footprint is minimised at all times.

Recycling & Materials Recovery
With growing environmental concerns, we understand the need for businesses such as ours to recycle as much as possible back into the construction industry, diverting materials away from landfill. We are proud to regularly recycle 97.8% of all materials brought into our licensed transfer station at Homestead Farm, Andover.
Selective sorting and separation of all materials along with strict quality controls allows us to supply the construction industry with a comprehensive range of quality recycled materials. We are in line with the UK government’s initiative that 25% of construction aggregate should be met from recycled sources.
Recycling is not only good for the environment. It also means that the Nelson Group is able to offer customers financial savings whilst still supplying good quality materials.
Disposal of Waste Materials
Sometimes there will be situations where our only solution for certain waste materials is landfill. At our owned landfill facilities we can manage and control this waste from source to disposal, ensuring that final disposal is carried out in the most environmentally responsible manner.
All Nelson sites are managed by fully certified operators who are directly employed by the company. All licenses and exemptions are issued directly to the company by the Environment Agency.
