J&B Recycling has recently invested £100,000 in the upgrade of an infrared optical sorter at the Windermere Material Recycling Facility to improve efficiency of productions.
The Tomra Autosort replaces the previous Tomra Polysort and with improved features including higher computing power and efficient detection of materials, will increase the quality of plastics recovered. The upgrade is part of the packages of investment that has enabled us to process an increased tonnage of material and resulted in less downtime at the company.
Mark Penny, Commercial Manager at J&B Recycling, said: “As well as increasing efficiency at the Windermere MRF, the upgrade will make it easier for our staff based on the line to carry out final quality checks and therefore decrease manual intervention.”
The upgrade comes as we announce our investment of £1.25million on our fleet of vehicles and mobile plant to replace older units and add new additions to our growing waste management services.
The most recent plant investment being a new £75,000, Liebherr at our Washington Site to ensure operations continue to run smoothly for the recyclables of Sunderland residents.
Upgrading our machinery and vehicles allows us to continue to provide the highest level of service required for our customers and partners in terms of processing and have more control over delivering materials.
We have remained dedicated to carrying on with our continuous improvement plan whilst also managing the disruption caused by the coronavirus outbreak.
As key workers, we are committed to improving the efficiency of waste collections and processing throughout this pandemic to ensure we have a sustainable robust business model for the future.
