Leading waste management company, O’Donovan Waste Disposal, has invested more than half a million pounds in a new recycling plant at its Scrubs Lane site in North West London.
The new equipment, which includes an electric trommel, conveyor, magnet and picking station, is delivering improved throughput of construction and demolition (C&D) waste produced across the capital.
Utilising the latest generation of engine means that efficiency is greatly improved, helping to save O’Donovan fuel costs and lower emissions. The new facility also provides a more ergonomic environment for staff to be working in all day, whether on the picking line or running the equipment. Both these elements – efficiency and safety – are key requirements for O’Donovan.
“Investing in new equipment is always a big commitment, but as the construction industry gets moving again we are seeing increasing amounts of C&D waste being processed at Scrubs Lane,” says Jacqueline O’Donovan, managing director at O’Donovan Waste Disposal.
“The new plant is not only delivering significant benefits in terms of processing increased tonnages each day, but also in terms of efficiency and reduced emissions, which is a core part of our Greener Vision Strategy. As a business, we are committed to reducing our carbon footprint and this new processing line will help us further build upon the reduction in our carbon emissions we’ve achieved over the last 4 years.”
The project was delivered by Powerscreen Midlands and Kiverco and the new equipment enables O’Donovan to handle over 40 tonnes of material each hour.
