Eco Sustainable Solutions road sweepings recycling plant

THE CHALLENGE

Eco Sustainable Solutions, formed in 1993, transforms various wastes from the wider community and converts them into usable, high-quality products. Eco Sustainable Solutions owns and operates the UK’s leading purpose-built site for organics recycling and renewable energy generation. Over three separate facilities, Eco Sustainable Solutions currently processes upwards of 250,000 tons of organic material each year.

The site has a higher organic content due to the rural location of the council making it increasingly important for Eco Sustainable to recycle their waste sustainably.

THE SOLUTION

After winning a contract from Dorset City Council, the road sweepings plant was first introduced in January 2015 with huge success. 

Recycling is at the heart of Eco Sustainable Solutions’ ethos. They saw great potential in road sweepings and gully waste as a valuable resource as it contains many useful materials that, once treated, can be recycled for re-use. Eco sought out a sustainable solution that was two-fold; a commercially viable plant and one that would drive recycling figures for the company.

The materials collected from gully and street sweeping wastes are processed to generate water, a-compost-like-output, washed sand and aggregates. Eco Sustainable Solutions’ recycling facility includes an AggMax logwasher which accepts the waste and the material is loaded in using the weighbridge operating system and onto the machine hopper. In the attrition stage, organics float off and the aggregate fraction is removed. The aggregates include washed grit and two grades of stone. This organic content is then dewatered, composted and sent to restoration and the remaining material is a flocculated sludge which is dewatered, recovered and reused.

THE RESULTS

Eco Sustainable Solutions’ investment in CDE’s treatment technology reflects the importance they place on waste management. Their evolving techniques over the years has saved councils and taxpayers thousands of pounds and the company has been recognised both locally and nationwide for their efforts in diverting these waste streams from landfill.

“We had looked at numerous plants and CDE’s specialist road sweepings recycling system ensured the best solution for processing roadside and gully waste. We were very happy with the outputs and the Environmental Agency also approved of the process.”
