Printing company returns to Riverside for baling needs

  • PDF

Flexographic printing company RR Flexo has enhanced its recycling capabilities by further investing in new equipment from Riverside Waste Machinery.

No stranger to baling, the company has recently obtained a brand new RWM 450 HD machine, to deal with the large volumes of polythene waste produced by the firm on a daily basis.

Founded in 1982 by the two main shareholders Ron Dodd and Richard Green – hence the ‘RR’ in their name – the business has gone from strength to strength.

It’s only three months since the official opening of Fortress Recycling and Resource Management’s new £5m facility in Warwick. But already the team has successfully processed 6250 tonnes of ‘waste’, thanks to an UNTHA XR3000C shredder at the front-end of a sophisticated processing line.

And now, all eyes are on ‘what’s next’ for the system, as the ambitious organisation prepares for 2018 and beyond.

Techbuyer – a global leader in the purchase, refurbishment and sale of IT equipment – has recently invested in a waste baler from Riverside Waste Machinery, in an effort to continually reduce the amount of waste material it sends to landfill.

The RWM500 mill size machine supplied by the Boroughbridge-based provider is now being used to bale cardboard, which is then recycled.

Tom Reid, operations manager at Techbuyer, said: “Although this concept wasn’t completely new to us, our previous baler was second-hand, and not very reliable. When it came to choosing a new machine, we met with a number of manufacturers, and Riverside was the best by far.


Specialist recycler aims to ‘plug’ market gap

  • PDF

UK Plug Recycling – a young venture which aims to further prevent the amount of electrical waste being landfilled – is one step closer to achieving its vision.

The Hampshire headquartered organisation has installed an UNTHA RS40 hard drive shredder to tackle plugs, sockets, small pieces of WEEE and other secure product destruction.

Capable of processing these ‘wastes’ down to a homogenous 15mm particle size, the technology can handle 1 tonne of material per hour.
