Newcomer to recycling scored big points at the “Eden Project”
Les Allen has been running Waste Disposal Services, a relatively small company in Penzance, Cornwall for several years now. When he decided to branch out more into recycling than general contracting, he approached RUBBLE MASTER UK Ltd. for a crusher in March this year. Soon he decided in favour of an RM60, the most compact of the RUBBLE MASTER crusher range.
The RM60 was just recently delivered to a high profile job at the "Eden Project" in St Austell, Cornwall. In this massive construction of Biomes built in an abandoned open cast clay mine, where different plants from around the world are grown, everything on site has to be recycled as a principle. So when it came to ripping up an asphalt car park and crushing it for relaying around the site, the obvious choice was a really compact but effective crusher, able to produce high-value final grain that could be reused on site. This was when Waste Disposal Services came in with their RM60.
The semi-mobile crusher was hauled on a hook-lift lorry. The start-up of the machine is fast and easy, so that the crusher is ready for work in about 10 minutes. The RM60 processes a great range of material – from bricks to general left over building material, asphalt and concrete – at a feeding size of up to 500 mm. At the “Eden Project” around 600 tons of asphalt were crushed by the RM60 over a two day period and the results were perfect. This opened up a regular contract at this special site for Les Allen.
