Housed within a new 20,000 ft2 building at the entrance to its Bolton site, the new facility is the culmination of months of planning and is an integral part of the company's business expansion strategy. Featuring a complete waste segregation and handling system from CDP Plant the new facility marks another landmark in J Doyle's 80 year history in waste recycling and will be a key element in the company's plans to increase site throughput through diversification into new markets and their ability to handle higher volumes, more quickly than previously.
Waste handling equipment within the facility includes a McCloskey 823 trommel screen operating in conjunction with an eight bay picking station complete with Enviro Cabin, overband magnet and air knife. This integrated plant processes the general industrial waste into separate streams; cardboard, paper, wood, 25 mm fines, plastic, metal and recycled aggregate. Waste paper is air conveyed to a compactor for volume reduction and more efficient transport costs.
The majority of the waste at the site is tipped by J Doyle's own fleet of HGVs but with plenty of room for growth the company is already seeing increased tipping by other firms.
"The new facility means not only will we be able to handle more loads but we will be able to recycle more of the waste and extract materials that would otherwise go to landfill. We are also bucking employment trends by increasing our workforce to operate the loading equipment and on the picking line,' says William Nuttall, manager at J Doyle.
"We have invested in the development of this new materials recycling facility to enable us to respond to increasing levels of legislation regarding the recycling of waste and the escalation in landfill tax. Without this new equipment we could not have handled a higher volume of waste on this site but now not only are we able to handle the requirements of our current business customers in a more efficient manner but we will now be able to expand our service to new customers also. By improving recycling rates, generating higher quality waste streams and making landfill tax savings we see this project being self funding," confirms William.
CDP Plant is the appointed distributer for McCloskey International throughout Central England, offering a range of trommels, flat deck screens, picking stations and conveyor systems which can be customised to virtually any size to suit customers' applications. Pickers can be positioned on either or both sides of the variable speed conveyor and, for enhanced working conditions for operatives, fully enclosed enviro-cabins such as those installed for J Doyle - have heating and lighting. Discharge chutes can be positioned as required and in any number for convenient ‘binning' of unwanted or recyclable materials in their respective stockpiles.
"Before purchase of the equipment we had a number of planning meetings with CDP Plant who were very accommodating regarding making the changes to overall system design, to ensure we were happy with the final plan Through the use of the McCloskey plant we can now offer a complete recycling package to all manner of industries," said William.
"It is our strategy to be one of the few leading companies able to offer clients a complete recycling package for metals, general waste and hazardous waste. We are proud that of the 1000's of tonnes of material we process each month, we send only 15-20% to landfill."
