Raymond Brown improves recycling rates at BKP

Raymond Brown’s construction recycling arm has signed a three-year contract with environmental services provider BKP Group which could see it divert 72,000 tonnes of construction waste across the contract’s lifetime.

The construction waste recycler has taken over the operations of BKP’s recycling facility in Casbrook Park, Romsey, in order to improve the recycling rate there. Already, efficiency at the plant has doubled, ensuring 50% of the 2,500 tonnes of waste sent there each month is now recycled.

Raymond Brown minerals and recycling director Steve Clasby said: “The site was achieving a recycling rate of around 25%. Already we have increased that to 50%, and our target will be to get to between 75 and 80% of waste recycled from this facility in the first year and we will achieve that target.

“We continually strive to find new markets for recycled products and new ways of recycling as much as possible.”
