A Cheshire-based waste recycling firm is reaping the benefits of increased productivity with the purchase of a new Terex Finlay 883 Reclaimer from Finlay Central.
WSR Recycling Ltd – a family business which traces its roots back over three generations – has been operating a licensed waste recycling facility from its Widnes site since 1990, processing inert demolition and green waste from commercial, industrial and domestic sources, as well as operating a mixed fleet of waste collection vehicles and plant machinery.
The new Terex Finlay 883 Reclaimer – which is track mounted and remote controlled for enhanced site mobility – is currently being used to process and screen green waste, including mechanical street sweepings, producing compost and soil improver suitable for use in landscaping.
Complete with a steel pan apron feeder, the 883 Reclaimer is fitted with 55mm heavy duty tines and a 20mm elongated mesh at the base of the screen box, sorting waste into plus 55mm, 20-55mm and less than 20mm stockpiles.
The less than 20mm product is composted to make a high quality soil improver, while the 20-55mm fraction is reshredded before being put through the Reclaimer again. The plus 55mm portion – only about 5% of the green waste – is sent to the recycling centre’s picking lines for sorting.
Neil Partington of Finlay Central, said: "This is the second Terex Finlay 883 Reclaimer that WSR Recycling have bought from us, purchased in part exchange for their older model.
"This newer machine has a number of improved features including a greater screen box amplitude for enhanced productivity, and a chassis extension to raise the discharge height for increased stockpiling."
Nick Prescott, director of WSR Recycling, said: "I’ve been working with Finlay Group for the past 12 years and I’m very pleased with the way the new plant is operating.
"It is a versatile machine which we can also use to produce hardcore from demolition waste, as well processing soil and green waste."
