R Collard opens aggregate washing plant

R Collard has opened an aggregate washing facility at Eversley, Hampshire, to process materials from construction and civil engineering developments in southern England.

Washing plants process construction wastes into a clean, homogenous, recycled product by removing contaminants and extracting silt and clay which bind the constituents together.

The Eversley site will supply recycled aggregate to major developments in the area, including widening schemes for the M3 and M4 motorways.

Founder and managing director Robert Collard said: “Transport is a major factor in the cost of aggregate, so our investment in this plant is a direct response to increasing demand for high-quality, affordable recycled product in our catchment area throughout the south-east.

“Refinements to the technology will enable us to process more wastes than we collect from local sites and create a truly closed-loop recycling system for construction waste.”

The £2m facility has an annual production capacity of 250,000 tonnes and was designed and installed by Duo in six weeks. The washing systems were supplied by Terex.
