Waste Transfer Station Recycles with REMU

A visit to Hillhead has led to a new customer for Worsley Plant being able to enjoy significant savings, in terms of  fuel, man hours, money and the environment.

They send less waste to landfill and can sell recycled top soil and hardcore on as an extra revenue stream.

Wanlip Sand and Gravel have recently invested in a REMU EE3160 HD Screening Bucket from Worsley Plant for use on their Volvo L90 Loading Shovel.

Wanlip Sand and Gravel are one of Leicestershire’s longest established gravel specialists. They stock an extensive range of decorative gravels and rocks and also offer a range of materials to suit the builder such as building sands, aggregates, mill waste and top soil.   As well as supplying sand and gravel they also run an onsite Transfer and Recycling Centre accepting inert landscaping and building waste.

The REMU bucket is now being used there to sort out Hardcore from Soil.   Will Winterton of Wanlip, came across the concept of screening buckets when he was at Hillhead last year, after he visited the Worsley Plant stand and Demonstration Area. He went on to try other buckets before making a decision but found the REMU was best for his needs.

Previously, Wanlip had already tried McCloskey and Finlay screeners.  However, with these, they often had to pass the materials through the screener two or three times, in addition to hand-sorting a lot of the material.  This resulted in more time and manpower.  A Screening Bucket offered a better and more economical solution for Wanlip’s operation.

As a result of purchasing the REMU Screening Bucket Wanlip Sand and Gravel are now separating their materials with one use of the bucket.  They can produce 18mm down premium quality Top Soil, which they can sell on.  They then crush, recycle and also sell on the clean Hardcore.  This now allows Wanlip Sand and Gravel to recycle 90% of materials, resulting in taking less soil to landfill.  All in all this saves them fuel, man hours, money and the environment.

Will Winterton says:  “The REMU bucket is a sound investment for us.  It has resulted in us achieving a new revenue stream at our Transfer and Recycling Facility, as well as making significant savings for our operation.  We wouldn’t hesitate in working with Worsley Plant in the future as their service and expertise has been key in achieving this success!
