Kenburn Carpet Crusher
KENBURN WASTE MANAGEMENT recently supplied a Carpet Crusher to Carpet Craft Flooring, Redcar, to compact its waste carpet for recycling.
Carpet Craft Flooring’s md Mark Lilleker saids, ‘We saw the Carpet Crusher on the Kenburn stand at the Flooring Show at Harrogate last year.
‘This machine is helping us reduce our skip costs which have risen dramatically over the past few years. As Kenburn explained that having 30 tonnes of compaction force, the Carpet Crusher compacts our carpet waste on a 4:1 ratio.
‘The machine recycles all our waste polypropylene off cuts into equestrian flooring, while all our old carpet waste is mixed with old underlay and converted into refuse derived fuel for concrete kilns.’
Mark Lilleker added: ‘As part of our commitment to the environment and terms in our MOD contract, we’re now operating on a zero to landfill policy stopping hundreds of tonnes of carpet and underlay waste going to landfill every year, while also saving us thousands of pounds a year in skip costs.’
