UNTHA’s largest four shaft shredder heads to LKM Recycling

  • PDF

UNTHA’s largest four shaft shredder has been installed at renowned waste management firm LKM Recycling.

The RS150 has been procured to maximise materials recovery and revenue generation at this increasingly diverse recycling specialist. Over 40 years ago, LKM started out as a scrap metal business but fast forward to 2017 and the 55-strong company is now handling everything from metals and glass, to wood, plastic and general waste.

This robust 22 tonne machine will therefore enable LKM to process an array of complex and often heavy duty applications including aluminium, tyres and uPVC windows. Set to achieve throughputs of up to 12 tonnes per hour, the RS150 and its quick-change screens will achieve flexible homogenous particle sizing as small as 30mm, depending on customer requirements.

Family-run catering butcher Yorkshire Dales Meat Company has strengthened its recycling strategy by investing in a compact waste baler from Riverside Waste Machinery.

Eight years of baling and counting for Momentive

  • PDF

Specialist rubber compound manufacturer Momentive Performance Materials has proven that waste baling can protect the environment, improve on-site cleanliness and boost a business’s bottom line.

Eight years ago, Momentive invested in three balers from Riverside Waste Machinery, in a bid to improve the safety of work areas within its busy Bolton premises. At the time the organisation was handling 60 tonnes of material each week, which naturally created a high volume of packaging ‘waste’.

But a consultation from Riverside revealed that baling technology wouldn’t just increase Momentive’s ‘green’ credentials, if cardboard and plastic waste could be better segregated and processed for recycling. It would also keep the site tidier and save significant amounts of money too.
