It launched a recycling scheme at Crewe last week that will eventually be rolled out to all 17 of its directly managed stations on the West Coast Main Line. Crewe, Preston and Wolverhampton stations are already taking part in the scheme, with Birmingham International following soon.
Train station offices will have recycling bins for paper and cardboard, while skips will be provided for station stores to use. On-train cleaners will make special collections for newspapers and magazines.
A Virgin Trains spokesman said that currently one tonne of paper and cardboard waste was being collected each week at Crewe and just over half a tonne at Preston. Figures for Wolverhampton are not yet available.
Virgin will initially concentrate on paper recycling before deciding if other materials should be included in the scheme.
