McCarthy Marland Limited, the waste and recycling company, has purchased two new Doosan DX140LCR-5 Stage IV 15 tonne reduced tail swing crawler excavators and a new Doosan DL250-5 Stage IV wheel loader for the company’s Material Recycling Facility (MRF) in the St Philips area of Bristol in South West England.

The new Doosan equipment was purchased from local Authorised Doosan and Bobcat dealer, Kellands (Plant Sales) Ltd of Bridgwater in Somerset. With depots in Bridgwater and Camelford in Cornwall, Kellands (Plant Sales) Ltd is the authorised Doosan and Bobcat dealer for the whole of South West England, covering the counties of Somerset, Dorset, Wiltshire, Devon, Cornwall, North Somerset, Bath and North East Somerset, Bristol and Gloucestershire.

Formed in 2001, McCarthy Marland was created to fill a gap in the local market for removal of both domestic and commercial waste and the company delivers and collects hundreds of skips of different sizes every day throughout the South West. Over the last 16 years, the company has grown rapidly, taking on extra personnel and increasing its fleet of lorries and skips on a regular basis to satisfy demand.

“We have been purchasing Doosan machines for over 10 years now and they have always performed well in our busy sorting and loading operations in Bristol and the new Doosan equipment has impressed our operators,” says Kevin McDonagh, Operations Manager at McCarthy Marland.

“As part of the latest deal, Mark Payne, Sales Director at Kellands, was able to arrange a very good package including a three year warranty and a three year service contract, giving us complete peace of mind. Using his knowledge of the industry, Mark has also ensured the machines have been set up with the correct specifications for our applications.”

At the St Philips facility, McCarthy Marland accepts nearly all waste types for recycling and any size of delivery vehicle, from car and trailer up to articulated lorries. Well-honed tipping procedures ensure that waste disposal customers benefit from quick turnaround times with minimal fuss.

Recycling is an essential part of the business at McCarthy Marland. The company recycles around 95% of waste materials that come into St Philips using state-of-the-art waste segregation technology, which enables it to recover as much recyclable material as possible so that it can go on to be reprocessed and reused. This includes a significant amount of material sent on to waste to energy companies in Newport and Cardiff in Wales.

“We provide our customers with skips or roll-on roll-off containers to be filled with waste materials,” says McDonagh. “…more and more of our customers are choosing to separate the waste themselves on site, which makes it easier to handle the recyclable materials when they come to us, so we can recover materials such as wood, soil, ferrous and non-ferrous metals, plastics, cardboard, plasterboard and hardcore.”
