Dayily waste may become a part of the railway in the future. This is based on a pilot from the UK NetworkRail. They use renewable plastics for new types of sleepers.

The pilot involved in about 20 tonnes of recycling waste materials into a new type of sleeper. These sleepers will replace some of the timber sleepers on the rural lines. During the trial, the NetworkRail will test whether they can stand the rigorous test of railway operations. If passed the test, it will be gradually extended to most of the railway.

The use of wasted plastic for recycled sleepers have a lot of advantages, at least can reduce the quantity of the buried garbage.

R & D and supply of sleepers from the i-plas, Inc. i-plas, Inc. is a waste plastic recycling business.
