ACCESS Recycling recently completed the scrapping of locomotives in Casino NSW for Aurizon Railways. The locomotives were stored on an active railway environment which is also a heritage listed site. The rail team had a strict time frame to carefully dismantle and remove the locomotives without disturbing the site and used strict environmental and safety controls
Several of the key components were able to be salvaged and exported to an overseas railway customer, while the scrap steel was recycled in NSW steel mills. Most importantly, the knowledge and experience of our rail services team helped to dismantle all of the locomotives onsite and successfully complete the project without any environmental impact or safety incidents.
