Recycling around the clock
By Lindsay Gale17 August 2015
Based in Nuneaton, Warwickshire, M.A.C Contracting was established in 1998 and now boats a turnover of more than £12 million (US$19 million) based around its recycling and reuse of construction and demolition waste material. In order to process material, M.A.C. currently operate a Sandvik QJ341 jaw crusher, a QA451 triple deck Doublescreen, a QE141 and two QE341 scalping screens. In addition, the company operates a fleet of eight wheel tipper and self-loading grab lorries.
Employing some 100 personnel, the company provides a one-stop-shop offering a variety of services that includes tipper haulage and plant hire, as well as the supply of road planings, hard-core and recycled aggregates. In addition, the company is also able to provide specialist muck away and waste management services. Its machines operate seven days a week and in times of heavy demand, have also operated overnight to provide a true 24/7 service.
Managing director Marcus Clay explained how the crushers and screens fit into his operation: “The QJ341 crusher is feeding the QA451 screen which is working in a four way split separating the material into various different aggregates. These include pipe bedding, 6F2 crushed concrete, concrete fines and 10 mm pea gravel. The QE341 screens predominantly road planes back down to 20 mm. Grab loaders return to site with a truck load of soil, brick and general garden waste, the soil is separated out and the rest is fed into the crusher.”
