A twin-ram baler from Middleton Engineering is helping MJ Church to hit its goal of recycling 100% of waste materials from commercial and industrial customers.
Its waste streams include mixed construction plastics, rigid plastics and cardboard, plus waste from a skip hire service.
MJ Church operates five waste transfer stations near Bristol, Swindon and Malmesbury, which support its own earthwork and civil engineering services as well as a range of construction, C&I and domestic customers.
The twin-ram machine adds to the company’s recycling capacity, producing bales of highly compacted materials for onward transportation to reprocessing facilities. The machine also offers the flexibility to handle different waste types with the one machine and switch quickly from one material to another.
Ben Staff, operations director for MJ Church, said: “The Middleton baler adds extra capabilities to recycle difficult-to-handle waste streams such as rigid plastics and significantly increases production. Producing uniform and highly compact bales helps to optimise our transportation and storage costs.”
