A United Kingdom-based skip hire company has chosen Finlay Plant Southern as its partner to deliver a mobile waste recovery solution to power through volumes of material on site.

Carl Bird Skip Hire, based in Norfolk in the east of England, has worked closely with Finlay Plant Southern - part of the Finlay Group of companies - since 1991 and has purchased four Terex Finlay machines in that time.

Now the family-run business has teamed up with Finlay Plant Southern for a new venture – introducing a Kiverco PS122 Picking Line to its site for a two-week rental period.

The compact product immediately made an impact after being delivered and set-up on site ready for use in just hours by the Finlay Group.

The machine – which is fitted with an overband magnet to recover ferrous metals – was fed with Carl Bird Skip Hire’s on-site Terex Finlay 883+, enabling the four-man picking line team to clean up thousands of tonnes of contaminated hardcore, recovering wood and plastics, as well as clean stone.

Carl Bird, managing director of Carl Bird Skip Hire, was impressed with the performance of the Kiverco PS122 Picking Line and plans to re-introduce it again this year.

He said: “The beauty of the plant was that it was delivered in the morning and was up and running within two to three hours.

“It’s done a brilliant job. We didn’t even run it every day and it still processed a 4,000 t stockpile.

“We’ll definitely be having it out on hire again soon as it’s helping us to achieve our aim of zero per cent to landfill.”
