Chambers Waste Management Creates Eight New Jobs at New Recycling Facility
Chambers Waste Management has completed a major investment in refurbishing its recycling facility at Aldershot, Hampshire, creating employment for eight people.
The site was formerly a transfer station where waste was stored before being transferred to other facilities for processing. The latest investment has seen the installation of a state of the art recycling plant which enables the company to efficiently segregate paper, wood, cardboard, plastics, aggregate and both ferrous and non-ferrous metals on site.
Any non-recyclable residue from the plant is taken to Chambers Waste Management’s recycling facility in Guildford, Surrey, to be baled and wrapped to produce a high quality refuse-derived fuel product - thus achieving 100 per cent diversion from landfill.
To service the new plant the company has also purchased two state of the art machines to handle the waste: a Liebherr LH22 - which carries out the first waste segregation and loads the plant - and a JCB 550-80 Wastemaster Loadall to unload all the various recycling materials from the plant onto transport.
Emma Chambers, finance director at Chambers Waste Management said: “Our new Aldershot recycling centre has greatly enhanced our environmental credentials. It enables us to meet demands for recycling services while streamlining our operations – by cutting down on the number of lorry journeys between our sites, increasing recycling rates and reducing the amount of waste sent to landfill.
“Eight new jobs have been created including the role of site manager and waste operatives, taking the total number employed at Aldershot to ten. As a local family run business we are particularly pleased to be bringing a boost to the Aldershot economy.”
