Collard Group invests in three new Kiverco waste recycling plants

The award-winning Hampshire based Collard Group Ltd has procured three new Kiverco recycling plants for their depots in Hampshire, Oxfordshire and Surrey.

The new systems will process construction, demolition, commercial, industrial, and household waste as part of a multi-million-pound investment that highlights the company’s sustainability credentials.

Group Managing Director Rob Collard explains the reason why he chose Kiverco: “We spent a lot of time looking at the companies capable of delivering high end, reliable waste processing plants and Kiverco came out on top.

“We wanted to increase the throughput rates at each site whilst ensuring we were maximising the quantity and quality of recycling, reuse and recovery. By increasing our processing at each site we’re also able to reduce our vehicle miles and therefore our carbon footprint. Kiverco are seen as the ‘Rolls-Royce’ of waste processing plants and we are very confident that their systems will help us divert more waste from landfill and maximise the return on investment.”

Kiverco has been designing, manufacturing, and installing waste recovery plants for more than a quarter of a century and is a highly respected waste plant provider in the UK and worldwide. As well as providing their own range of robust products, they also integrate world-class partner technologies such as waste screens, optical sorters, and large drum separators into their waste systems.

Con Gallagher, Global Sales Manager at Kiverco, commented on the new partnership with Collards: “It was clear from our initial discussions that Rob and his Senior Management team wanted a reliable, high performance solution at each of their waste depots. We are delighted to be working with Collard Group to help them achieve their commercial and environmental objectives and are very grateful that they have placed their faith in us to deliver results.”

All three Kiverco systems will be installed and running by the end of May. In total they will process more than 150,000 tonnes per annum of incoming waste across all three sites. The plants will separate and recover a variety of products including fines, hardcore (brick/concrete), ferrous and non-ferrous metals, wood, rigid plastics, plastic bottles (HDPE & PET), cardboard, and an RDF/SRF product.
