M&K Waste Recycling System increases recycling by 40%
The 50 ton per hour M&K Waste Recycling System means a greater proportion of waste once destined for landfill can now be repurposed. It’s introduction has streamlined the process by efficiently segregating larger items for recycling such as metals, cardboard, plastics and wood, allowing Scott Bros to process more skips, containing commercial, construction and demolition waste from throughout the North East – making the waste and recycling specialist much more competitive.
In addition to the new M&K Waste Recycling System increases recycling by 40%, it has also increased the efficiency and safety of the process, meaning staff spend less time on the floor of the plant segregating waste by hand. The plant’s original and smaller recycling line is being retained and will be dedicated to processing smaller grade material. It, along with other machinery, is to be upgraded, bringing the company’s total investment in the plant to £1m.
Peter Scott of Scott Bros. said: “This new recycling line has not only transformed the volume we are able to process but allows us to recycle a higher percentage of waste that previously would have gone for disposal to landfill. This significant investment is about reducing our carbon footprint and creating a greener future, as well as reinforcing the position of Scott Bros as a regional leader in waste recycling. The new processing line is an example of the company embedding the philosophy of the circular economy in our future plans – which are firmly focused on designing out waste and further increasing our ability to recycle and remanufacture materials. It also enables Scott Bros to become more competitive and productive, by achieving a higher tonnage rate. This strengthens the company’s commercial position and provides greater security for our workforce of more than 100 people.”
Scott Bros. is one of North East England’s leading recycling businesses. Founded on Teesside 40 years ago, predominantly in the supply of tipper lorries and excavators to local authorities and the construction industry, the company has grown exponentially to deliver a comprehensive range of ‘circular economy’ services. While still being heavily involved in haulage and skip and plant hire, the business has continually diversified to provide a comprehensive range of recycling services.
