Reduce Waste. Reduce Costs. Reduce Traffic.

Reduce Waste. Reduce Cots. Reduce Traffic.

There is a strong link between the warning of landfill been full and the incentive to recycle, especially concerning construction and demolition debris (C&D).

Many hours of conversations and many papers have been wrote on the subject. It’s importance and the consequences if we fail to implement a solution are clear. However, what is missing or still not enhanced enough is the simplicity of the process.

In order to recycle debris to be reused they need to be reduces. By implementing the 3R – reduce, reuse, recycle – construction sites will generate their material and have it available immediately at no extra cost wherever they are. How? By attaching an MB Crusher unit to the heavy equipment available at the site.

In short you can produce your building material, using your heavy equipment, wherever the job site is located.
This is the easiest solution for many companies now that procurement is becoming more complex, expensive and it takes longer. And it is also the practical solution when the construction sites are located in areas where heavy vehicles have a hard time reaching it, where there aren’t connecting roads or in historical centres with traffic restrictions. Let’s have a look at those companies that have embrace the MB Crusher machines.

In Bulgaria, a company had to demolish an old house and had limited space. They installed an MB-L160 crusher bucket on the Case 6 backhoe loader they already had on-site, making it quick and easy to load the debris, crush it on site, and obtain quality material that they could reuse as the foundation for the new homes. They saved time and reduced their expenses: they didn’t need to process the material further by transporting it and repurchase it from the recycling centre or a quarry. The result? A material that all companies can obtain on-site at no extra cost.

This methodology can apply to those who work on large or small urban redevelopment sites or those often involved in road works, bridge demolitions, or road construction, and those who also work in quarries. Materials can be reused to create internal roads, fill holes, and reduce management costs by half. With MB Crusher’s equipment, you set up an actual recycling centre on-site, with the following advantages: independence from other suppliers, reduced processing times, eliminating transportation costs, ready-to-use quality material.

In Nimes, France, a company constructing 745 housing units needed to redevelop an old farm road for inter-district service and excavate and create a drainage network for rainwater. In this context, where you need to excavate and produce a large amount of inert waste, the necessary choice was MB Crusher’s equipment. They recycled all of the material: the MB-S18 screening bucket selected the fine materials, while the BF80.3 crusher bucket processed the larger rocks. The aggregates they obtained were reused immediately by laying them over the drainage network trench, avoiding all logistical and material disposal fees and material purchasing fees. Thierry Bastide, manager of Société Travaux Publics Bastide, the company in charge of the contract, said, “the advantage is that you put back the materials that you have extracted.”

The advantages don’t stop at reducing transportation fees and the cost of treating or disposing of waste but extend to the material’s quality. A recent example is when the Santo Spirito bridge in Puglia, Italy, was damaged by a landslide and needed to be demolished. The company used MB’s crusher and screening bucket to crush and reduce the material they obtained down to their desired output size. They acquired material that exceeds the standards to be reused on the job site to create the road substrate that they needed to reconstruct the bridge.

In short, why dispose of something and they purchased it again? Do it yourself, with MB Crusher.
