Simply Waste Solutions has invested in a British-made Loadmac truck-mounted forklift so it can offer a bulk recycling service to large commercial clients.
James Capel, chief executive said: “The Loadmac was competitively priced and impressed in areas such as allowing one-side offload and its stability over difficult terrain.”
The Loadmac will go on the back of a new curtain-sider bought by Simply Waste so it can visit customer sites and collect recyclable material by the bale.
Capel added: “These bales can weigh up to half a tonne each so we have the flexibility to load at any site without needing to worry about what materials handling options our customers have.”
The Loadmac has been supplied with a specialised clamping attachment which allows bales to be collected from the side rather than underneath, which speeds the process.
