Bristol Waste Company to Meet Zero to Landfill Target  - continued

The Doosan DX140LC crawler excavator   The excavator and grab will be integral to a new 12-man picking station to be built at the St Philips MRF, for which McCarthy’s has been granted planning permission with the backing of the Environment Agency and the local council.

Kevin McCarthy added: “At present, we are committed to recycling around 90% of the waste we handle, recovering materials such as wood, ferrous and non-ferrous metals, plastics, cardboard and hardcore.

"We had started planning for our new picking station more than two years ago, but in May 2012, the Government increased the tax we have to pay for storing waste in landfills from £2.50 to £64 a tonne, so the new picking station will help us to avoid the vast increase in costs, whilst meeting our target of ‘Zero to Landfill’ in two years.”

Complement environmental objectives

Complementing the obvious environmental advantages to the local community offered by the new picking station, over 200 new solar power panels are being installed on the roof of the new facility and these will provide power for the new shredder and screening machines in the picking station, allowing it to run with close to zero carbon emissions in the future.

Further expansion is planned by McCarthy Waste Management. Kevin McCarthy said: “The new picking station should take 3 months to construct and once that is up and running, we’ll be looking to establish an additional operation, probably in the south of Bristol to make it easier for contractors to deliver waste for us to process. In time, we would also hope to complement this with another facility in the west of Bristol.”

The Doosan DX140LC crawler excavator is ideal for a wide range of excavation and general construction applications. The 6-cylinder Doosan engine and e-EPOS operating system provide optimum productivity, controllability and fuel economy. Weight balance is optimised to achieve higher lifting capacity and breakout force, while the class-leading ROPS cab offers unbeatable comfort and excellent all-round visibility.

Powered by a diesel engine providing 71 kW (95 HP) at a maximum governed speed of 1,850 RPM, the it has a maximum digging depth of 5,645 mm, a dump height of 8,675 mm and a maximum digging reach of 8,300 mm.
Intended for use on carriers weighing 13 to 15 tonne, the design and clamping force of the Montabert HGR13 Handling Grapple makes it an excellent 360º tool, providing dramatically reduced loading times for sorting and moving a wide variety of materials including construction and demolition debris and general domestic waste and rubbish.

Volvo L150G loading shovel has been delivered to Bathgate Silica SandOperator satisfaction prompts repeat business

On the operators’ recommendation, a brand new Volvo L150G loading shovel has been delivered to Bathgate Silica Sand, Arclid, Cheshire and takes over as the prime mover at the Company’s soil and sand mixing plant.

Operator preference and a sound track record for after-market support were the main drivers in determining the choice of the latest arrival according to Bathgate’s General Manager Dave Robinson. “There’s no doubt my operators favour the Volvo product, especially now with the enhancements to the cab of the G series machine in terms of added comfort and increased visibility,” he said. “Once again we’ve decided to invest in a Volvo service agreement for the new L150G for complete peace of mind.”

In charge of Bathgate’s soil and sand blending plant, the L150G will re-handle incoming soils and sands for blending, as well as load out lorries.
