Recycling Success Story for a well renowned local Landscaping and Groundwork contractor


R.Exall & Sons are committed to recycling materials on their landscaping and groundwork projects wherever possible, and also offer a materials recycling service for other smaller local companies at their head office, based in South Godstone, Surrey.


R. Exall & Sons has been established since 1951 as a family run company, providing all types of hard landscaping and groundwork from design to build. They take on large and small projects both residential and commercial within the Surrey, Sussex and Kent areas. They provide a wide range of landscaping and groundwork aspects, creating anything from gardens, driveways, walls, ponds/lakes, roads, pavements compounds from concrete or tarmac to the clients requirements.  R. Exall & Sons have been involved in some very large projects which include 5000 sq metre compound in concrete, tarmac roads around an industrial estate,  the design and build of a water feature at the National History Museum and building a stroke therapy garden at Mayday Hospital.


Landscaping and groundwork projects often involve taking up existing materials, for example, patios, old concrete compounds, drives, footpaths and excavations of soil, to later be replaced with new materials.  R Exall & Sons wanted to recycle these materials rather than buying in new each time.  They had started to bring any waste materials back to their yard and were hiring in large screeners or crushers once they had collected enough materials to recycle.  These they would then reuse on future projects rather than buying in crushed concrete or top soil each time.


Joe Burke, Area Sales Manager for Worsley Plant contacted the company and arranged a demonstration of some of their range of screening and crushing buckets.  Keith Exall was very impressed and could see the advantages of using buckets over the bigger machines.  They therefore bought from Worsley Plant a Dig a Crusher MB BF60.1 crushing bucket and a Dig a Screener MB S14 screening bucket.


These are much more efficient and cost effective for their needs.  They are easier to use and more versatile fitting easily on their existing excavators.   Buying the buckets has allowed R Exall & Sons to recycle all materials bought back to their recycling site, saving them money in the long run.  They can easily take excavators and attachments out to bigger contracts to recycle and reuse materials directly on site. They can screen and crush down waste from driveways, hard standings, garages etc., to reuse as crushed aggregates and screen excavated soils for the reuse on flower beds, turfing and seeding.


Buying the buckets has also allowed R Exall & Sons to start offering a recycling service to smaller local landscaping companies where they will recycle their materials for them, thereby generating an extra revenue stream.


Keith Exall says "Working with Worsley Plant has been a pleasure and I've been impressed by their expert advice and comprehensive product range.  We bought the Screening and Crushing Buckets as we are extremely impressed at their versatility and they are ideal for a wide range of our projects, helping us to save money, recycle materials and be more flexible. We are also very excited to be able to offer a new service to small local companies who we can help to achieve environmental and cost savings on their own projects."
