UBU Environmental orders Co:flo road sweepings recycling system

Published:  01 April, 2016

Manchester-based UBU Environmental has invested in a turnkey road sweepings recycling system from CDEnviro which will process in excess of 25,000 tonnes a year.

UBU Environmental wanted a system that would process waste to reduce contaminants and have the capacity to recover and re-use the material.

With more than 50 years' experience in plant hire through its sister company T J Murphy, the company operates a fleet of more than 90 road sweepers, tankers and jetters providing services focused on the north-west of England.

The new turnkey road sweepings recycling system will be installed in summer 2016 and will consist of a trommel, a Co:flo water clarification system, a Hydro:flo settlement and sludge conditioning system, an Evowash grit recovery system, a Hydro:grade system for liberating and classifying unwanted constituents and a decanter to recover fines.

Scott Hamilton, project manager at CDEnviro, said: ‘The benefits of this turnkey system are twofold; firstly it puts UBU Environmental in greater control of their disposal costs and allows them to counter the effects of the landfill directive and annual increases in landfill tax. Secondly, and most importantly, it guarantees that they have a future sustainable business approach.'
