It is estimated that there are millions of tons of disused water pipes across the UK lying left and abandoned creating possible pathways of contamination.

Some of these mains are large diameter cast iron pipes from disused reservoirs and pumping stations and for various reasons are now redundant.

GLS purchase and recover these valuable assets.

For example we were called in to recover all the cooling mains at the former ICI Invista site Teeside. GLS successfully recovered 4000 tons of scrap metal thus leaving the site free of obstacles and ready for development.
