2019 Recycling and Waste Management Awards

BUILD 2019 Recycling and Waste Management Awards 4 Oct19643 Best Local Skip Hire & Waste Management Company - Oxfordshire M&M Skip Hire Limited T/A M&M Waste Solutions has been supplying households, commercial properties, developers, builders, construction companies, industry and colleges with waste collections throughout Oxfordshire for the past 47 years. We invited Matt Wright to tell us more about the firm and the range of services it has to offer. ince its inception, M&M has worked hard to offer its customers a quality service at competitive rates, all whilst maintaining a genuine commitment to recycling and protecting the environment. Matt explores how this is achieved thanks to the firm’s commitment to excellence, client service and sustainability. “At M&M, we have a purpose-built Materials Recycling Facility and Waste Transfer Station at Worton Park near Cassington, just off the A40, two miles from the Oxford ring road and around four miles from Oxford City Centre. This means that we are in a prime position to receive waste via major road networks and minimise pollution of the environment by cutting out unnecessary journeys. “From this site, we operate a fleet of 24 collection vehicles comprising of skip lorries, Rollon-off lorries and small collection vans. The fleet operates to the highest standards and we dem- onstrate this by committing to the Vulnerable Road Users awareness scheme FORS. The fleet is inspected, serviced and maintained by our trained fitters at our own on-site workshop to ensure that it is always performing to the best of its ability and offering our clients the very highest possible standard of service.” In 2018, M&M made a significant investment in plant and equipment. Anew static process plant was installed, which is cap- able of operating at a throughput of 80 tonnes per hour with commercial, industrial and construction wastes. The plant consists of a series of walking floor feeds, sizing screens, fines lines, manual picking stations, magnets, optical sorting machines and density separation. The whole configuration of the plant has been designed to optimise material recovery for reuse and recycling. To assist with this process and to ensure that recycling is optimised a new Untha RS100 four shaft, slow speed shredder has been installed to reduce the size of bulk and over size items prior to feeding the material into the process line. The shredder has a number of sizing screens which are interchangeable and can be used for different feed stocks. The shredding process liberates all recoverable materials from each other, which ensures that the plant can recover clean recyclable items and maintain good off- take standards for the materials entering the recycling market. S The shredder and the plant are designed to operate in a number of different configurations. In addition to this, the shredder can operate online or offline and the plant can operate in different inde- pendent modes or as one whole line, thus allowing preventative and scheduled maintenance to take place without interrupting production. Such developments have helped the firm to enhance its success, but Matt is keen to highlight how the company remains commit- ted to excellence and compliance even as the firm expands. “To ensure that we maintain our high standards as our busin- ess grows, we have implemented and achieved ISO Certification for Quality ISO 9001, Environment ISO 14001 and Safety OHSAS 18001 audited by British Standards Institution. The commitment to maintain these standards ensures that our customers can remain confident that their waste is handled responsibly.” With regards to the future, Matt is confident that M&M will continue to offer its clients the exceptional level of service that they have come to rely on, as he is proud to conclude. “Looking ahead, we have a number of exciting projects in the pipeline, we are continuing to invest in processes, plant and people to ensure that we continue to deliver our service to our exacting standards and to remain at the forefront of tech- nology enabling us to continue to improve our environmental performance. Ultimately, we are totally committed to reducing landfill tonnages, preserving the environment for the future and to a cleaner, greener Oxfordshire.” Contact Details Company: M&M Waste Solutions Contact: Matt Wright Commercial Manager Website: www.mmskiphire.com M&M Waste Solutions:
