Street Sweepings and catch basin detritus have proven to be a valuable resource with many materials being recovered for re-use.
The typical breakdown of street sweepings includes grit, plastic, paper, cardboard, wood, litter & glass. Street Sweeping waste can often be contaminated with trace amounts of chemicals. Gully waste (or catch basin cleanings) is most often made up from sand, grit, coarse organics and silt/fine organics.
As disposal costs continue to rise, the commercial argument for cleaning Street Sweepings and Gully Waste becomes even stronger.
Due to the nature, composition and contamination of this waste material, disposal costs for detritus such as street sweepings and gully waste are high.
Our specialist street sweepings recycling systems ensure:
-Recovery of reusable materials such as clean, dewatered sand and aggregates, which create a source of revenue.
- Guaranteed repeatability of results - reduced contamination levels in outputs regardless of feed contamination levels.
- Washed grit suitable as a non-structural fill or secondary aggregate. Sand, grit and gravel offer significant potential for recovery and can be used in line with the EA guidance.
- Oversize grit/gravel can be recovered for use as recycled aggregates while recovered organics/rag can be used in composting or alternatively go to landfill at reduced volumes. In the past these materials would have all gone to landfill, incurring significant disposal costs.
