House Clearance Glasgow & The Future Of Recycling

House Clearance Glasgow reports that O.Kay Engineering Services Ltd. has used a tour of three Dutch recycling companies to demonstrate the power and performance of their range of BEZNER automated sorting machines to potential UK customers. Interest in the equipment manufactured by German automated waste screening specialists BEZNER prompted O.Kay to arrange the visit.

The first site, on the outskirts of Rotterdam, is a large recycling facility owned and operated by Terlouw Recycling. SIB in Waalwijk hosted the second demonstration and the tour was completed at Baetsen Recycling bv in Veldhoven. All three sites process a mixture of construction and demolition waste, source separated waste and commercial/industrial waste. At each plant the BEZNER Bucket Screen was being used at the front end to split up fines, ‘nasties’ and large items, making these fractions instantly more manageable and easier to sort elsewhere in the system. Once past the the Bucket Screen, systems in use included BEZNER’s oscillating Horizontal Screening Machines, magnets and eddy current technology, BEZNER Inclined Sorting Conveyors, standard conveyors, balers and wood flotation tanks which allow each site to process more than 50,000 tonnes per year. House Clearance Glasgow notes the investment in these plants was obviously considerable and served to highlight the very different stages of recycling in the Netherlands and the UK. House Clearance Glasgow reports that in the Netherlands they are reaching the point of recycling landfill contents. O.Kay’s Antonia Kay meanwhile believes that waste management in the UK is still driven towards filling up existing and even new landfills, by the combination of all-pervasive economic forces and a near absence of leadership from the Government and of meaningful anti-landfill legislation.

The most staggering aspect of these three highly automated, capital intensive Dutch plants however, was not their individual size and capacity, but their very proximity to one other. In only one day, the O.Kay-BEZNER party was able to visit all three sites as they lay within a 60 mile radius. And these plants were neither loss leaders nor poorly researched investments. They were proof that, when landfill is no longer an economically viable option, intensive recycling will return investment and pay its way. As David Allan says from House Clearance Glasgow after seeing the three plants, “When there is more value in the market, recycling becomes much more worthwhile. At the moment in the UK it is so much more expensive to recycle than landfill, but it won’t always be this way. In five years’ time the UK will have had to catch up with countries like Holland to reach the targets set by Europe. That means we will have to start investing much more in UK recycling initiatives well in advance of those five years.
