J&G Environmental increases recycling firepower with new shredder
Blandford Forum based J&G Environmental has purchased a new Ulster U150 twin shaft shredder as part of a wider plan to further strengthen its recycling offering.
Recently installed at the waste management specialist’s facility in Dorset, the machine is designed to process a range of materials that can easily be recycled by the team such as barrels, plastic drums, plastic buckets and plastic crates.
The Ulster U150 is double the power of J&G Environmental’s existing shredder, significantly increasing its recycling capabilities, and allowing the company to work with more customers across a host of markets to support them with their varied recycling requirements.
The machine pre-shreds material before it moves into J&G Environmental’s dedicated wash plant, leaving a remarkably clean granule that can be extruded into whatever the customer wants, with reuse options including pipework, railway sleepers, plastic sheeting and car parts.
'As one of the leading waste management businesses in the entire UK, J&G Environmental is committed to delivering a quality service to customers across all markets, as the pressure continues to increase on companies to become more sustainable,’ said John Haines, general manager.
'Investment in the new Ulster U150 twin shaft shredder not only means we can satisfy the demand from current customers, but also help new clients with their recycling needs and support their long term environmental goals.’
While J&G Environmental has strong links with the print industry, such are the wide ranging capabilities of the business that it can take all sorts of recyclable materials from companies in a number of industries.
Its specialist set up means that the materials it can potentially process include packaging plastic such as bottles and tops, containers, crates, trays, pots, totes and films on reels.
This far reaching offering also covers manufacturer and industry plastics such as moulding scrap, plastic sheets and redundant plastic, as well as end of life products including plastic buckets and laboratory plastic waste like bottles and pipette tip boxes.
In addition, J&G Environmental can support its customers with recycling redundant plastic products such as plastic packaging and bankrupt stock, offering a cost effective way for companies of all shapes and sizes to shine a greener light on their business.
