Acumen’s Ferrybridge Facility Weighbridge Clean Up

Acumen’s Waste Management Team were recently called out to clean up some waste at an Ash Processing facility near Ferrybridge.

The Issue

Acumen staff arrived at the site on a Saturday morning to clean up the site’s weighbridge, removing fly ash residues from the roadway, drains and underneath it. This was an important job to ensure that the weighbridge remains clean and in good working order, as well as staying safe for vehicle access in the long-term.

How Acumen Helped

We deployed a supervisor and operative, a support van and a mobile hot wash high-pressure jetter to ensure we could sufficiently clean the area and dispose of the waste.

The Outcome

This clean-up operation is only the start for our Waste Management team and we will be carrying out regular checks on a four-week basis to ensure the area remains clean and free from fly ash residues.


Another example of our waste management having a lasting impact on an important public road with high traffic levels.
