Tom White Waste is a family run business, based in Coventry. They provide waste management solutions to both residential and commercial properties, including some of the area’s most prestigious organisations, including The Ricoh Area and The Jaguar Land Rover Factory.
Through their skip hire business and collections of commercial waste, Tom White Waste deal with large volumes of C&D waste (a mix of soil, hardcore, wood metal and general waste). Having previously processed this material with their aging trommel and picking station, it was time for the company to source a more reliable and cost-effective solution.
Having dealt with CRJ for several years, purchasing spare and wear parts for the existing machinery, Tom White Waste approached CRJ for a hire solution.
Mike Symons, Area Sales Manager at CRJ attended site to understand the material and operational requirements, before detailing a proposal to Jonny Lackenby - Site Manager at Tom White Waste.
To recover as much material and possible and uphold their target of ‘Zero to Landfill’, CRJ proposed a Doppstadt SM620K trommel with a 15mm drum to remove any fine material from the stream. The oversize material continues onto a Kiverco PS122 Picking Station where a blower removes any light material before it is handpicked within the station.
The Kiverco PS122 is a double sided, 2 bay picking station, which can accommodate two 40-yard skips which store the picked commodities. CRJ’s picking stations come equipped with lights and heating, as well as a stop cord running the length of the station for immediate stopping of the belt.
The remaining material continues out of the picking station, under an overband magnet which collects any remaining ferrous metals, leaving a clean hardcore product which can be recycling back into the construction industry.
The other separately collected fractions are compacted into bales and sent to local plants to be further processed. The small amount of remaining material is sent to a local RDF facility where it is burnt to create energy.
We spoke to Paul Labram and Jonny Lackenby at Tom White Waste during the hire to see how the machinery was performing:
“Everything has been great for us so far; the machinery has exceeded our expectations, and we will be looking to possibly keep the equipment now on long term hire.”
Paul Labram - Waste Processing and Fleet Operations Manager
“I have found my dealings with CRJ extremely positive.”
Jonny Lackenby - Site Manager
