Q: What’s taller than a house, blue in colour and recycles everything it eats?

A: Not an elephant.

At Alan’s Skip Hire, we are proud of our place in the skip hire, waste management and recycled aggregates industry, whereby we turn waste into a resource. So, it is with great pride we can unveil our brand new BlueMAC Manufacturing Ltd Fines Clean-Up System at our Bretton depot.

As one of the leading suppliers of state-of-the-art recycling systems to the global waste management and recycling industries, BlueMAC have designed, manufactured and installed one of the tallest Fines Clean-Up Systems in Europe.

Historically, ‘fines’ (i.e. soil, stone, concrete, clay, plastics, fine aggregates) is the term given to the waste streams that are too small for a standard MRF (Materials Recycling Facility) to sort, and can often end up used in landfill processes as a covering layer for the waste below.

Speaking of the investment, Neil Eccleston, senior site manager, said: “When we were looking at ways to minimize waste sent to landfill, the issue of fines was at the fore. Even though we already divert as much waste as possible away from landfill, we wanted to improve and after looking at all the alternatives out there, we felt that BlueMAC provided exactly what we were looking for.

“Our Fines Clean-Up System now allows us to separate these ‘fines’ in material size ranging from 0 – 70mm, allowing for the recycling of waste on a much finer but much larger scale than before.”

Alan’s Skip Hire managing director Neil Hassall said the company is delighted with the new system and what it means for the business and customers who drive to recover and recycle as much waste as possible.

“At Alan’s Skip Hire, we like to think of ourselves as a progressive and innovative business in the waste management industry and are always keeping abreast of new developments in technologies and processes within our field as our customers demand it and we always aim to provide what they want.

“We also position ourselves on our reliability as a skip hire provider and our commitment to the environment, so it is with great pride and confidence we have chosen BlueMAC to provide us with a cutting edge Fines Clean-Up System to help us continue to divert as much waste as possible away from landfill.”
