Cardboard baling boosted

To meet increased recycling volumes at its Newton Abbot waste transfer and bulking station, Teignbridge District Council in Devon has awarded a contract to machinery specialist Middleton Engineering for the supply and installation of a Scapa HB60 HM2 channel baler and associated equipment.

The baler will be used initially to process waste cardboard volumes from domestic waste collections, producing compact mill-size bales ready for onward shipment.

Under the deal, Middleton is also supplying an inclined chain conveyor to optimise material feed and loading for the baler, together with new bay walls to increase storage for loose cardboard at the council’s Forde Road Depot.

Chris Braines, council waste and cleansing manager, said: “With growing volumes of waste cardboard, an automated baler to boost capacity and throughput was essential. Middleton’s solution is both cost effective and future proof to provide the capacity we need for the next 20 years.”

With a press force of 60 tonnes and an output of 5-7 tonnes an hour, the fully automated HB60 HM2 has a small footprint and low headroom.
