The headline for our recycling division is our 95% average recycling rate
We can provide a number of different solutions for our clients including waste management, on-site crushing and the recycling of demolition arisings. We also sell high quality recycled aggregates e.g. pit sand and washed concrete sand which are widely used as pipe bedding and slab/block bedding within the construction industry. We help organisations of all sizes to fulfil their recycling and waste management needs.
Our activities – especially demolition work – are often regarded as ‘dirty’ work. We are actively challenging these perceptions through our extensive recycling operations. With certification to the ISO 14001 environmental standard being maintained since 2002 and a current average recycling rate of 95% (rising to as high as 99% for some of our demolition sites), we feel that we are making excellent progress in reducing our environmental impact.
We can manage waste both on site and at our recycling facilities. Where clients plan to re-use the demolition arisings for future developments on their demolition site, we can use our mobile plant to crush materials to 6F2 specification which can be used during the construction process.
The centrepiece of our recycling commitment is our state of the art recycling facility in Bonnybridge, where our specialist equipment can cope with all waste from household rubbish to bulk concrete and demolition arisings. The significant majority of waste brought to the facility is recycled. Many materials are then sold as aggregates, such as stones, after being segregated and treated. Over the past few years we have invested significantly in new recycling plant and machinery as we continue to expand and improve our recycling division.
Our innovative wash plant in Bonnybridge which we own and operate is capable of taking soils and rubble, from which we create 40mm, 20mm and 10mm gravels. Following washing these are sold on as clean gravels meeting the highest specification.
We are fully licensed by the Scottish Environment Protection Agency (SEPA). We are committed to utilising new processes and technologies to keep reducing the volume of waste that we send to landfill. Our aim is to one day achieve our zero waste to landfill target.
Our efforts to become a ‘greener’ company benefit our clients. We work hard to help our clients to meet their environmental targets e.g. under the BREEAM assessment and rating system.
