CDEnviro claims its recycling plant installed at Eastern Waste Disposal (EWD) in Brightlingsea is the first in the UK to recycle road sweepings, gully waste and trommel fines.
It believes it is unique in combining proven road sweepings recycling technology as well as the new potential to recycle previously landfilled trommel fines.
EWD director Danny Carter said: “Equipment, technology and plant require huge capital investment but we knew we had to keep ahead of the industry to remain competitive in the growing waste sector. We are in a position now to improve the quality of our recycled products and create a more sustainable market for our customers. The CDEnviro system has allowed us to unlock the potential of road sweepings and treat trommel fines as a resource not just a waste.”
EWD can now recycle large proportions of road sweepings and trommel fines using the dedicated washing and water treatment processes.
