The New BlueMAC Recycling Plant at Enterprise Skiphire PROCESSING c&d AND MUNICIPAL WASTE

The Customer:

Based in Aylesbury, Buckinghamshire, Enterprise Skiphire provide a wide range of skips suitable for all types of jobs - big or small. They're a recognised name within their area and pride themselves on great customer service with a friendly, reliable and competitive service.

The Challenge:

Enterprise Skiphire were looking to expand their existing recycling system, consisting of a trommel and simple picking isle, in order to focus their efforts on recycling 100% of waste.

The Solution:

When looking to expand their system, Enterprise Skiphire turned to equipment distributor Blue London and its sister company BlueMAC manufacturing and invested in a tailor-made BlueMAC recycling plant. The plant processes a mix of C&D and municipal waste at around 50 tonne per day; meaning an initial rate of between 5 and 10 tonnes per hour but with considerable growth possible. As well as contributing towards the company’s growth in waste recycling, the plant has also played a huge role in minimizing tip-to-landfill. And with its built in future proof versatility, it is more than capable of handling other waste materials should the need arise.

The Process:

  • The initial waste material is loaded into a hopper and an overband magnet is then used to extract any ferrous material.
  • Remaining material is then fed into a 25-70 trommel, sized 2.5m wide and 7m long, which extracts 2 grades of fines – 10mm and 25mm.
  • Material then moves onto an incline conveyor, whereby a blower separates light fraction, before it enters the manual picking station.
  • Within the picking station there are 5 double sided bays, all fitted with relief bins, whereby wood, cardboard, mud, non-ferrous material and general waste is separated.
  • The remaining product, hardcore, is then transported to the end of the plant by conveyor.
