Whitham Mills supplies Green Plan-it at new £1.5 million MRF
Waste management machinery designer and manufacturer Whitham Mills, has been appointed by confidential document destruction and waste management company Green Plan-it to provide waste processing machinery, including one of the Whitham Mills’ specially-designed balers, at the company’s new purpose-built Materials Recovery Facility (MRF) at Bardon Hill, Coalville, Leicestershire.
Established in 2007, Green Plan-it provides destruction of confidential materials and full waste management solutions to its nationwide customer base which are drawn from a range of sectors.
Its new £1.5 million MRF includes an investment in Whitham Mills machinery with a list price of around £300,000.
The new Whitham Mills designed system has a document shredding capacity of four tonnes per hour and consists of two Series 600 shredders and a GB 1108FX model (up to 7 tons per hour) fully automated baler connected by an 18.5 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.”
Managing Director at Whitham Mills, Ben Smart added: “Our systems are designed and manufactured right here in the UK by engineers who have dedicated their professional lives to solving problems faced by organisations with varied and challenging waste streams.
“We take great pride in our work and help our customers deliver on their promises to their customers. The system we have installed here is robust and in-keeping with the requirements of modern waste management companies.”
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.
