Posted on: Fri, 18th May 2018

In Swindon, Thamesdown Recycling has “embraced” new technology by investing in a drone. The drone is capable of taking videos and pictures from various angles, heights and areas around the site.

The drone’s main purpose is for stock take of all materials on site making the process a lot more accurate and quicker than manually counting on food, the company said.

Thamesdown Recycling said it has also found the drone useful for security, safety inspections and site/ building surveying for maintenance.

The waste management firm recycles a range of materials at its purpose-built site near Swindon, as well as secure product destruction. The company works with a range of clients including local authorities, waste management companies, food and drinks manufacturers, retail outlets, diaries, logistics and distribution facilities, breweries, and branded goods manufactures.
