Success for Mitie's Pest Control Business
Mitie’s pest control business secures new combined contract with Network Rail.
Mitie’s pest control business has secured a new contract with Network Rail. The seven-year contract for environmental on-track support services will see Mitie deliver a unique, combined service incorporating trackside pest control, fly tipping clearance and sanitation support.
Peter Trotman, Managing Director for Mitie’s pest control business said: “We’re looking forward to collaborating with Network Rail. We are managing key environmental issues on Network Rail property, including other ancillary cleaning services. Our team will do its utmost to deliver the best service possible on all fronts.”
Mitie’s deliverables for Network Rail will span approximately 50% of Britain geographically, covering the west side of the country from north to south. They will be managing various pest control issues on railway property; including prevention and eradication of common pests such as mice, rats, wasp nests and rabbit control.
Managing the consequences of illegal fly-tipping along railway lines will also be part of Mitie’s remit. Through a combination of vegetation control and cleaning, Mitie teams will uncover any past fly-tipped material as well as monitor and clean up any newer deposits of waste.
