Maltese materials recovery facility U-Recycle Limited, based in Naxxar, Malta has ordered a new state-of-the-art in floor chain conveyor and two man picking station from specialist UK recycling engineers, Middleton Engineering, to upgrade and improve facilities at its operations centre in Naxxar.
The new two flight conveyor, with mid-point picking station for removing unwanted material from the waste stream, will primarily handle paper and plastic, and has been designed to feed an existing channel baler. A majority of the material will include shredded paper from a growing number of commercial customers and the company expects to be handling around 500 tonnes of waste material per month, once the new solution is installed.
U-Recycle Ltd’s Managing Director, Joseph Sammut explains: “Our materials recovery business is expanding, so we need a new conveyor to separate and process material more easily to make our operation more efficient and result in a higher quality end product. We chose Middleton Engineering, after seeing a conveyor in action at a waste management facility in Leeds, because we’re happy with the quality, the fact that they are offering a complete solution, fully integrated with our existing baler, as well as organising the logistics of shipping and installation.”
