BNSF has recycled for many years and continues to look for more opportunities
to expand its recycling programs and reuse materials. Most BNSF facilities today
have active recycling programs for materials such as used railroad ties, oil,
batteries and other recyclable materials.
Reducing Environmental Impact
BNSF is meeting the challenge of addressing environmental impacts at legacy
sites where rail operations have been conducted for a century or more. In the
past five years, BNSF has invested more than $350 million on remediation efforts
throughout our network and has completed work and rehabilitated more than
150 sites.
