Thompson Valves manufactures precision valves for the water and oil industries. Bob Hartwell recently took over the environmental function and decided that the company must ‘do their bit’. They were emptying a front end loader skip a week of cardboard and another 2 skips a week of general waste which had a high percentage of plastic film and paper.
Bob invited Landfill Alternatives in to assess the different options available for a ‘Nil to Landfill’ system which would also achieve a cost reduction. The installed solution was to position wheelie cages at key points to capture cardboard, stuff frames to capture plastic film and white office towers to segregate the paper. At the heart of the system is a twin chamber baler and now cardboard, plastic film and waste is all baled. The material is all collected through one contractor and the companies ‘waste summary’ chart now shows a much higher percentage of material recycled with the final small percentage being burnt for energy.
