Sector: Waste Management

What they asked us:

Green Plan-It, the confidential document destruction and waste management company, has appointed Whitham Mills to provide waste processing equipment, at their purpose-built MRF (materials recovery facility) at Bardon Hill, Leicestershire.

Costing in excess of £1.5 million, the solution designed by us included two Series 600 shredders, capable of shredding documents of up to four tonnes per hour and a fully automatic paper baler, GB1108FX fed by an 18-metre chain-driven conveyor.

Russell Ward, Managing Director at Green Plan-it said: “This new facility at Bardon incorporating the Whitham Mills system signifies a key investment for the company which will allow us to deliver more and improved services to our growing number of customers.

“The vast majority of organisations have document security requirements and need to be able to trust the entire process we put in place. This begins at collection and ends with the final destruction.

“The new system significantly increases our waste management capacity and provides us with a system which we and our customers can be confident in.”

In a comprehensive end-to-end approach,

Whitham Mills has designed, installed and commissioned system and will provide rolling 12 month service cover along with consumables supply and fitting.

Green Plan-it’s new MRF opened for business in mid-April 2015.
