Hounslow Highways attended a Hounslow Homes event, Hallogreen, on 31 October 2013 which showcased sustainable businesses and organisations in the area.

Business Manager Tim Hurley and Communications Officer Alice Campion set up a stall at the event, held at the Convent Way Community Centre in Southall, to promote Hounslow Highways’ new energy-efficient LED street lights and discuss other sustainable elements of the contract.

They spoke to local residents and explained that as part of the Core Investment Period, all of the lamp columns that are replaced are recycled and that 100% of the carriageways and 70% of the footways excavated are recycled. They also explained that old footways and carriageways are turned into foambase to use on new surfacing schemes.

Attendees consisted mainly of local families and as it was Halloween, they were encouraged to dress in their best costumes to win prizes.

Tim said: “It was great to interact with some of the local residents and get our message out there that we are a responsible business with energy-efficiency and sustainability in mind.

“We are continuously looking for ways to reduce our carbon footprint and it was good to be able to share some of our initiatives with the public.”

Other organisations taking part in the event included the council’s Waste and Recycling Team, West London Waste Alliance, Hounslow Homes teams, Blendavenda and Global Action Plan.
