Clearaway makes a smart choice

Basildon based, skip hire and waste management specialists has invested in a Sennebogen 821E supplied by Molson Green as they develop their new waste processing and transfer yard.

A family run business, for over 20 years Clearaway Recycling Ltd has maintained innovation at their core. Outgrowing their old premises, a recent move to a larger yard has meant a surge in investment in the material handling equipment on site. The latest of several recent additions to the fleet has been a Sennebogen 821E material handler fitted with a 650l capacity selector grab that will pre-sort waste prior to loading their static plant and loading containers of sorted and processed material.

Clearaway are a well-established Skip Hire and Waste Management company servicing businesses and the public in the Basildon, Southend and Romford areas. With 40 articulated vehicles on the road including 10 skip wagons and several roll-on/roll-off wagons, they are well positioned to offer customers in the area the reliable and punctual service customers have come to expect.

While the business prides itself on extracting the maximum amount of recyclable material from its waste as possible, customers can rest assured that none of their waste is going to be buried at landfill. 100% of non-recyclable items go into an energy from waste facility that generates electricity from the remaining processed waste.

Investing in reliable workhorses:

The Sennebogen 821E works alongside other recent investments in their fleet, supplied by Molson. These include a Hyundai HL760 waste handler loading shovel, a Hyundai R145LCR-9A compact radius excavator and a Keestrack K3, 3-way screener.

The Sennebogen 821E truly is the heartbeat of their operation. With a continuous stream of skip wagons and roll-on/roll-off lorries through the gates, it effortlessly pre-sorts freshly tipped loads removing any large and bulky items including easily separated bits of timber, metal or carpet before their Hyundai HL760 WH consolidates the material into a tidy pile. Seamlessly, the Sennebogen 821E is straight back into action loading their static plant where the material is processed through a trommel screen and a picking station for full separation of recyclable items.

The Sennebogen 821E clearly demonstrates it is the perfect machine for Clearaway’s application not only by the tasks it needs to complete, but also the working range it is required to cover. With a reach of 11m to the dipper pin when fitted with the K11 ULM boom configuration and an operating weight of 23,950Kg, it has the reach and balance to perform any task this demanding environment can throw at it.

Operator comfort:

The unrivaled operator comfort offered by the Sennebogen MaxCab system will keep the operator happy and productive throughout the course of a full shift, thanks to its air-suspension seat with built-in heater, sliding door, ample leg room and best of all the fingertip control allowing the operator to drive the machine from the joysticks.

Consequently, this makes the steering wheel a thing of the past, allowing full visibility from the hinged front window making picking and sorting tasks more efficient thanks to the operator’s uninterrupted view.

Paul Whitehare, Clearaway Ltd Owner said; “We have been delighted with the Sennebogen 821E. It is doing everything we thought it would and it hasn’t missed a beat. The operators love the cab and they have also been very keen on the fact they can adjust the speeds on the attachment to suit their operating style. As we all know, a happy operator is a productive operator.

The other machines that Molson have supplied have also been spot on. For me the ability to deal with Adam for all this kit was a key part of my decision on what to buy. To know I have only got one call to make for any problem, on any of this kit makes my life a lot easier”.

Adam Meeking, Molson Green Sales Manager said; “Paul and the team are fantastic to deal with. They hold many of the same family run business values that we believe in at Molson. By being true to their word and always trying to work together we have built a strong relationship that I believe will continue to grow and grow as both businesses move forward together.”
