Two of the UK’s leading construction companies have joined forces to form an organisation capable of processing up to 250,000 tonnes of inert waste a year.
Tarmac Churngold Recycled Aggregates (TCRA) is a joint venture between Tarmac- the UK’s leading supplier of heavy building materials and Churngold Transport and Recycling (CTR)- the south west’s largest bulk earthworks contractor and market leader in the production of recycled aggregates.
Tarmac south west area manager Martin Riley said: “This is an exciting partnership bringing together a wealth of experience and expertise, which can only be good news for our existing and new customers.
The new company will operate from a 10-acre site in Filton and will be the largest facility of its kind in the Bristol area, providing sustainable materials through its combined fleet of over 100 vehicles.
CTR managing director John Barcham said: “Customers can be assured that the high standard of service they’ve come to expect from both Churngold and Tarmac will continue.
“TCRA will offer a ‘one stop recycling shop’; accepting and processing inert waste to supply quality assured recycled materials back into the local market. This joint venture will seek to utilise the Tarmac and Churngold resources to best advantage, which can only improve our already high levels of customer service.”
