Scott Bros increase C&D waste-recycling capacity
North East firm to more than double commercial production with new CDE plant
SCOTT Bros, one of the largest and most prominent names in the plant hire, haulage and recycling markets in the North East region, have announced plans to invest in a brand-new construction and demolition (C&D) wash plant from CDE.
When commissioned, the £4 million state-of-the-art plant will more than double the C&D waste-processing capacity for the company, producing seven in-spec recycled sand and aggregate products.
The investment will assist Scott Bros to go from repurposing 80% of their waste materials to recycling all incoming waste, as well as allowing them to process more skips containing commercial, construction and demolition waste. The new CDE recycling plant is expected to process up to 2,000 tonnes of waste materials per day to meet the growing demand for recycled products in the local markets.
Mike Bibby, business development manager at CDE, commented: ‘When complete, this plant will be the first CDE solution of its kind in the region. With its capability in handling tough material, the patented technology in this modular solution will assist Scott Bros to maximize product yield from their feed material, as well as guaranteeing a lifetime of superior performance.’
Scott Bros director Peter Scott said: ‘We are experiencing huge demand for our recycled sand and aggregate. Normally we can build up a stockpile, but it is being loaded onto the trucks and going straight out to customers as quickly as we can process it.’
Fellow director Bob Borthwick added: ‘We have tripled our original investment to ensure Scott Bros is able to reuse and recycle as much material as possible by designing our waste and creating sustainable solutions.’
