Pakawaste Ltd, the market leader in the field of waste handling equipment, have again helped Hammond’s Furniture who are an existing customer with their Waste Recycling needs.

RotokrushHammond’s had large amounts of wood and plastic waste, which was being disposed of in 35yd open skips. Pakawaste have put in place a Rotokrush to reduce the wood waste therefore reducing the number of skips emptied from 43 a month down to 25, which has a massive saving on haulage costs. The ROTOKRUSH compaction system is a unique product which provides the customer with the flexibility to load up to 50 cubic yard containers with bulky materials such as packing cases, pallets, wood, glass fibre and other industrial/difficult medium density waste materials whilst achieving compaction ratios on average of 4:1. The STATIC ROTOKRUSH is fixed to a firm concrete base with single containers being placed in front of the machine for continuous compaction. Compacting into open containers allows fast, easy loading by forklift truck or loading shovel making this an ideal machine for high throughput sites. With regards to the Plastic waste a Powerkube XL is now being used which allows Hammond’s to receive revenue for the mill size bales now being produced. The POWERKUBE XL baler is the largest standard baler in the range, with an overall length of 6535mm and a feed opening 1500mm long x 1440mm wide. It also produces mill sized bales, but its extended loading aperture allows large items of waste and bulky cardboard boxes to be baled effectively giving up to 2000kg per hour throughput. One of a range of materials handling options such as bin tippers or conveyors can be fitted to facilitate easy loading of the waste. Once the bale is made, the user is alerted by a ‘full bale’ light and tying the bale only takes a few minutes. The completed bale can then be taken away by a waste processor, often in exchange for revenue.
