Bucket boosts recycling

Family-owned waste management business Rainbow Waste has streamlined its operations after purchasing a Remu EP3150 screening bucket from Worsley Plant for use on its Bobcat skid steer loader.

The company operates a waste transfer station, and offers a range of recycling services for commercial and domestic customers.

The Remu bucket is used on its construction and demolition waste to screen hardcore away from soils. This leaves clean hardcore, which it sells on, and soils which are recycled.

At the end of the picking line process, the bucket is also used to reduce the weight of any remaining waste by taking out leftover fines before any remaining waste goes to landfill. This has saved the business a lot of man hours and frees up staff for other tasks, which has helped to keep costs down and saves time.

Chris Hill, managing director of Rainbow Waste, said: “The Remu bucket will have paid for itself within the first 12 months of operation, so was well worth the investment.

“I’ve now reorganised the company’s working methods and introduced a night shift. The screening bucket is part and parcel of that reorganisation. Now, a large pile of skip waste built up during the day can be processed overnight.

“It has allowed us to recycle more than 90% of all skip waste and generate additional revenue streams.”
