R Collard moves into metal recycling

Hampshire-based demolition and waste management company R Collard is to open a metal recycling plant in Wokingham.

The Toutley Road facility will be used to recycle metal from the company’s in-house demolition projects, from the wastes tipped at its five MRFs and its skip-hire customers.

It will be located near the firm’s five licensed transfer stations in Eversley, Aldershot, Bramshill, Reading and Farnham.

The company will now be able to manage the recycling of ferrous and non-ferrous metals, including all types of aluminium and copper, with equipment including a metals shredder and a baler for compressing materials ready for reprocessing into new metals.

“It is our first step into the world of metal recycling,” said Robert Collard, founder and managing director.

“It is a fantastic opportunity which complements the waste infrastructure and demolition requirements for the R Collard Group.”

It follows the company’s move in 2015 to open an aggregate washing facility at Eversley, Hampshire, to process materials from construction and civil engineering developments in southern England.
