D & E Roberts Ltd has been established for over 30 years. Since 1998 they have operated from their waste transfer/recycling centre in Leatherhead, providing waste disposal services to a diverse customer base, including householder’s builders, landscape contractors and blue chip companies. They continue to invest in "state of the art" waste sorting and separating equipment to process all waste including construction and demolition waste. They have an on going commitment to responsible recycling.
Their crushing activity is now on the increase, due to their increased focus on recycling wherever possible. They also had identified a need to crush smaller so they decided it was time to invest in a new bucket model.
Dave Roberts, Company Owner, invited Worsley Plant to visit on a Thursday and by Tuesday they had their new bucket!!
As Dave puts it, ‘An amazingly quick and impressive turnaround! The bucket would have been out of service for a week and we simply can’t afford downtime, so Worsley Plant collected our old bucket (in part exchange) and delivered and installed our new bucket on the same day.”
Back in 2002, D&E Roberts had a small crushing processing area and no space for a big crusher.
A crushing bucket was the perfect fit and continues to be the best solution today.
They crush on average 6 loads a day of Construction & Demolition waste, which goes through their waste plant. It starts off going through their picking belt and it is the left over hardcore and concrete that has been recycled from roads, patios, drives and drainage which is crushed.
The main benefit of crushing is that it saves on disposal and ensures materials are recycled and reused. This provides D&E Roberts with an additional source of income as well as being environmentally friendly. They produce both Type 1 at 50mm down and Type 2 at 80mm down. The crushed size is adjustable depending on customers needs. It is a simple process of releasing the tension on the spring, and either adding or subtracting shins to adjust your crush size.
