JCB Waste & Recycling Days - Not A Waste of Time
Hundreds of experts from the global waste and recycling industries have been given an insight into the machinery solutions offered for their sector by JCB during conferences staged at the company’s World HQ.
More than 500 delegates from the UK, France, Italy, Germany, Spain, Norway, Denmark, Austria, Hungary and the Middle East descended on JCB in Rocester, Staffordshire, over two days.
The centre piece of the two conferences was a keynote speech from Nick Herbert, MP, The Shadow Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs. Delegates were also given an update on new legislation facing the industry and the latest product launches from JCB for waste and recycling.
James Richardson, JCB’s General Manager for Waste, Recycling & Demolition said: “Our 2009 Waste Days re-affirms JCB’s position at the forefront of this crucial sector. We have addressed the burning issues and legislation affecting the market, identified and demonstrated emerging industries and best practice from around the globe and showcased our range of purpose-built products for the sector. The interest shown from such a vast number of delegates demonstrates the value of these informative events.”
After the presentations, visitors watched a live demonstration of JCB Wastemaster machines involved in waste and recycling handling applications alongside a full range of processing equipment from other leading suppliers to the industry. The tasks re-created included: kerbside collection, wood waste processing, green waste composting, metals recycling, end of life vehicle disposal, WEEE operations, tyre recycling and aggregate recycling.
Shown, towed behind a JCB Fastrac model, the Zago Eco Green Composter offers a simple, reliable and economic means of green waste recycling. Due to very low noise levels, they are favoured by many local authorities for use in urban areas. Supplied by Westcon Equipment, a new Jenz BA720 high speed shredder was shown in operation handling green waste.
Replacing the AZ660 model it is set to prove a popular unit in the green waste and composting industry.
Cannock-based Jack Moody Holdings provided a wide range of equipment and materials including RoRo skips, a Walking Floor Trailer, wood waste, blocks and logs to be processed during the demonstration.
