Treno takes every precaution to ensure our work does not negatively impact the ecosystem. We know that often rail runs though treed areas and close to waterways, and we’re careful that we leave behind a clean, green landscape.
We’ve dealt with PCB’s, phosphates, radioactive material, termite infestations, and protected species. In each case, we achieved a successful outcome while carefully respecting the surrounding land and its inhabitants.
In addition, we try to reuse and/or recycle all we can. Rail is reused in the steel industry. Ties that meet standards are recycled for use on other rail lines or in industries like landscaping. Ties that don’t measure up are incinerated or disposed of in government-approved landfills.
