Whitham Mills Wins 8th Local Authority Contract In Wales
The Manchester-based automatic baling system designers and manufacturer, Whitham Mills, wins another local authority contract to design and install a Mini MRF in Powys Council at their Brecon site.
This contract marks the 12th local authority win for Whitham Mills to supply recycling and waste management equipment to the local councils such as Powys, Blaenau Gwent, Flintshire, Conwy and Anglesey.
Powys Council required a system that could separate and bale a wide range of materials such as aluminium and steel cans, cardboard and plastic bottles. Whitham Mills designed, manufactured and supplied a system which included a GB1175TR (twin ram) baler with various conveyors and sorting chutes as well as a chain conveyor which can directly feed the baler from the sorting bays.
David Armstrong commented on the install process and the successful relationship between Powys council and Whitham Mills:
“Whitham Mills designed and installed a fully automatic twin ram baler and sorting system, which now forms an integral part of the Councils recycling process. The level of design expertise and in-depth knowledge helped the Council achieve an optimum design solution that was further enhanced by the experienced installation & maintenance team who continue to provide an excellent service. I would happily recommend Whitham Mills as the product, assistance and knowledge has been exceptional.”
Managing Director, Ben Smart, is pleased with the numerous local authority wins in Wales:
“This marks yet another local authority win for Whitham Mills for an MRF. Our systems fit seamlessly into the wider recycling and waste management plan for Wales which is why they have achieved record recycling rates”
