Do you have a skid, a loader, a digger, a telehandler? Then you must read this
[Australian Earthmoving Magazine, January 2019]
There has been buzz going around for a quite a while now regarding the "zero waste" to landill and the opportunities and moral obligations linked to this campaign. For the planet, for corporates, for the environment, waste management has become a tangible environmental problem. Infastructure booms ahead nationwide, while landfill fees and levies increase, making profitability making iffy, unless... More and more Australian companies are now acknowledging that, so-called "waste" is an opportunity to exploit to satisfy needs. Being sustainable is good for business.
Andrew Moseley from Dockers Demolition in Perth, Wstern Australia is thrilled at not having to remove the demolished house from site and then having to bring fill in to build up the site for the new construction. Instead, he has processed the bricks and rubble from the demolition to produce the fill on site. Saving both time and money. A win-win situation.
There was already all that was needed: the debris, the skid, the operator. And the company could forget all the logistic troubles; tolls, weight limits, traffic congestion, wait time, landfill fees.
A jaw crusher bucket did the trick, an MB-L160 this model is suitable for the skids from 4,5 tons od weight, once attached, the reduction of the rubble began. It could not be easier that that, just by sitting in the cab the job got done. The results: less cost per hour, no huge space for maneuver needs and yes, more free time.
So reduce, reuse, recycle can be achieved so easily, understandable why is catching on fast.
It is good for the planet, for future generation and it is also making the day to day operation smoother. Thus, with an MB Crusher bucket a company avoids moving the material from the site to the landfill, waste becomes a productive resource on site: to fill new foundations, trenching excavations, road surfacing, or in gardens as decoration elements. And if it does not find opportunities to be used on the same site, it is a commercial asset: it can be sold to other companies.
When a selection is what is needed, there is a story to be told as well
Straightline Excavations, a Victorian based Civil Construction Company, had its screening bucket MB-S14 delivered a couple of weeks ago. They specialises in basement excavations and they understood the material laying around had an income value, disposal was an unnecessary cost. So they purchased and MB screening bucket to clean up material that has been left around after demolition works. Salvaging the material already available simply by using the excavator that was on-site.
A new way to operate began, pratical and effective: separate to recycle, invest in order to save money. With an MB unit the company was able to recover excavation materials in the same construction site that produced them.
Continuing to accumulate inert material and not managing it has become an unsustainable cost for our planet. It is a corporate duty to support disposal and reclaiming costs, to promote sustainable development and to respect environment and people rights.
It's about safety, it's about productivity, it's about caring, it's because it's worth it.
