Riverside Waste Machinery, one of the UK’s leading providers of waste baler technology, servicing and consumables has reported a record start to the year.
The company, which offers an extensive range of baling machinery for many different types of materials from paper to paint tins, has seen a 35% increase in enquiries from a plethora of sectors including the automotive and retail industries.
Managing director Jonathan Oldfield said: ‘Despite what continues to be a tough economic climate, we have seen a spike in enquiry levels as organisations from both home and abroad review their waste management strategy and realise the revenue that can be generated from waste. It’s reassuring to see that companies are once again planning ahead and making investments in longer term returns.
‘Our large range of vertical baling machinery means that whether companies are looking for a compact machine to handle low volumes of waste or have the requirement to create mill size bales and really revolutionise their waste management procedures, we can help.’
A recent addition to the Riverside fleet was the RWM HZ 70T, a mill size semi automatic horizontal waste baler. At 7m long, this competitively priced 9.5 tonne press is one of the most robust in the industry, and can achieve bales of approximately 650kg.
With a varying compaction force of 50, 60 or 70 tonnes it is suitable for many different types of material and was designed for organisations such as small skip companies, reprocessors, large manufacturing units, retailers and distributors handling large volumes of materials.
Jonathan concluded: ‘The RWM HZ 70T has proved to be extremely popular with companies processing high volume waste streams as they achieve on-site space saving, cost efficiencies, environmental compliance and more importantly, additional revenue yield.
‘It is this machine’s success that has paved the way for our newest baler which will be launched in the spring. The new arrival will perfectly complement the RWM HZ 70T but I’m not giving away too much at the moment – you’ll have to watch this space!’
