R.R Donnelley produces letters and forms for the high street banks. It is a market with high quality expectations and short deadlines. R.R Donnelley decided that they needed to strive for a ‘recycle-all’ policy to reduce costs and to be more environmentally friendly.
Landfill Alternatives were invited to discuss waste management options and handling solutions. In this consultation process, it was discovered that 70% of their current waste was cardboard, with plastic film and paper also making up a significant volume.
The solution finally adopted from Landfill Alternatives was to install an LFA 500 mill size baler. This would convert the cardboard into 500kg bales which could be sold to cardboard merchants.
At the same time a fleet of stuff frames were spread about the site in strategic positions to capture all the plastic film and 20 office towers were put into the offices to capture all paper. The paper and plastic are stored in a room until sufficient has been collected to process through the baler. This means that the baler processes three streams of material.
