In association with Hodge Clemco Ltd, we have reviewed our spent abrasive materials sent for disposal from both contract sites and company owned processing facilities.
The aim was to form a new recycling route to reduce our Environmental Footprint and the overall volume of material sent to landfill.
Following the review, we implemented the new system for recycling spent abrasives in August 2019.
The new system can be used for all grit including lead contaminated loads.
Not only does the new system provide positives environmentally as the spent abrasives are now recycled rather than going to landfill, but the costs associated with collecting the used abrasive materials have fallen.
Since the new programme inception in August 2019, 213.47 tonnes of spent abrasives have been recycled and not sent to landfill.
As a Company we continually encourage all new Environmental initiatives and support waste reduction and pollution preventions throughout our operations.
