Brewster Bros, a family-run business in Scotland, is officially launching what it describes as the largest recycling plant in the United Kingdom.
The plant, featuring a CDE state-of-the-art wet processing system, will provide waste management services and recycled aggregates to builders, construction companies, civil contractors, utility contractors and concrete product producers.
The recycling centre includes £3.8 million (US$5 million) of investment including high efficiency CDE equipment, with a capacity to recycle 400,000 t of construction, demolition and excavation waste per year. This new facility supports the Scottish government’s strategy to secure 70% recycling of construction and demolition waste by 2020.
The plant can process and recycle soils and rubble collected by Brewster Bros fleet of tipper lorries from construction sites into high value sand and gravel, reducing waste disposal costs for customers while maximising waste recovery. The wet processing system was specifically designed to process difficult construction and demolition waste materials and optimise material recovery.
“It’s an exciting day as we officially launch the UK’s largest recycling facility of this type,” said director Scott Brewster.
“Our number one aim is to treat and recycle construction and demolition waste as a resource, ensuring zero waste to landfill.”
David Kinloch, CDE regional manager UK and Ireland, added: “I am delighted to have had the opportunity to work with Brewster Bros to create a construction, demolition and excavation waste recycling plant bespoke, to their site and production requirements.
“This large-scale facility incorporates the latest CDE technology and will be a flagship project in Scotland.”
