The plant, which is the first Terex Recycling Systems installation, was specifically tailored to suit Collard Group’s site and the material which would be fed into it. Together with their distributor Molson Green, Terex Recycling Systems developed a process which incorporated advanced mechanical separation that would increase Collard Group’s processing capacity and recover products of a higher purity than what was previously achieved. The team worked within restricted space and constraints of fitting the plant inside and around the existing building, all whilst planning the installation around Collard Group’s site works, that included the erection of a new building.

The highly efficient plant is processing a mixture of Commercial and Industrial (C&I) and Construction and Demolition (C&D) waste
Robert Collard, Managing Director, Collard Group said, “We are driven by a zero waste to landfill commitment, we take waste from site, and process it to make it useful again. We call this recycling the past for the future. To achieve this goal, it is important that we have the latest equipment that is optimised to meet our specifications. Terex Recycling Systems and Molson Green worked with us to ensure the design, delivery and installation of our new plant worked around our site operations, also taking into consideration our site preparation works to include foundations, building modifications and power supply. Close collaboration between all parties ensured our requirements in terms of output were met, whilst also keeping the plant footprint to a minimum to aid their site operations.”
