The Waveney road household recycling centre in Ballymena has taken delivery of a Gradeall G140 static waste compactor.
This site has already had Gradeall equipment in the past but required a compactor to deal with general non-recyclable waste, mainly bulky items of furniture. It was chosen to replace an open-top skip which was not effectively using the available space well, with collections being required too frequently.
The G140 was equipped with a walk on deck loading double door hopper, handrails and a deck extension were made to integrate with the existing site layout. All walk-on surfaces were made from chequered plate and coated in non-slip epoxy paint.
The Gradeall G140 is expertly engineered to manage a broad spectrum of waste materials, adeptly handling bulky non-recyclable items that previously posed a challenge for the centre’s open-top skip system. This includes:
