Waste solutions save firm £120k
A CAR interior company in Australia is saving £120,000 a year after working with a North Yorkshire recycling specialist.
Easi Recycling won an order to supply its baling machines to Futuris Automotive in Melbourne as favourable exchange rates boosts Easi’s client base in Australasia.
Based in Tholthorpe, near Easingwold, Easi supplies baling machines which help business save money by preparing waste packaging for recycling.
Through its work with Futuris, Easi has saved the business up to £10,000 a month by segregating waste at source in colour-coded wheelie bins, which could then be processed and compressed using the Easi700 Horizontal Baler with bin lift.
Jon Earnshaw, managing director at Easi Recycling, which previously traded as Mil-Tek (Central) Ltd, said: “We are extremely pleased that we were able to deliver a solution to Futuris that exceeded expectations.
“Their waste management has now been efficiently streamlined and they’ve achieved significant savings as well as extra ongoing revenue from baled materials.
“The results also demonstrate our ability to offer excellent solutions to both the domestic the export market, especially with favourable exchange rates in Australia and New Zealand, our recycling equipment offers superb value for money.”
Futuris Automotive specialises in producing automotive interior parts for Ford, Toyota and Holden and previously used many different types of mixed waste bins at a number of workstations.
Additionally, Futuris was paying for expensively large 33-cubic metre open skips and also used a shredder compactor for disposing of waste interior materials, creating a labour-intensive handling of waste.
Easi’s Mill Sized baling solution was implemented in August, with Easi staff recently returning to check progress on site.
Futuris now uses colour-coded wheelie bins for simplified segregation of materials at source.
Segregating and processing waste on site means the recyclable materials can be collected direct by a recycler.
It allows Futuris to achieve maximum market revenues by selling direct to recyclers.
As well as segregating and baling recyclable waste, general waste is also baled, helping Futuris to achieve zero waste to landfill, which will increase its savings by a further £100,000 a year.
