CH Middleton is one of Yorkshire’s leading privately owned waste management companies, working with local authorities plus hundreds of businesses and tradesmen.
Operating from a purpose-built waste transfer station in Doncaster, the company has drastically reduced the amount of waste sent to landfill and minimised its carbon footprint and that of its customers, assisted by a purpose-built Terex TWH220 waste handler from local dealer Warwick Ward.
The decision for a new handler was important because the machine it was looking to replace did the lion’s share of work in the yard. The company had a list of important requirements including strength, stability, high performance, fuel economy, driver comfort, after sales and reliability.
Several other machines were trialled before the company deciding that the Terex, supported by Warwick Ward, had the full package.
Guy Middleton, director, said: “One of the main reasons for going ahead with the Terex was its tier 4 engines that give smooth power accompanied by excellent fuel economy and low emissions, which is in keeping with our profile as being as green as possible.
“Due to the hours the machine will be working, our operators were involved heavily in the decision-making process. They found the Terex the most comfortable, controllable and stable machine by a large margin, meaning that, even on a long shift, fatigue would be kept to a minimum.”
