County Council invests in new JCBs to aid recycling centres



Household Waste Recycling Centres (HWRCs) across Staffordshire could be running more efficiently with the help of 11 new high tech JCBs.

 

Staffordshire County Council’s cabinet has agreed to the procurement of the machines, which will be used primarily to compact material in waste containers and increase on-site capacity.

 

In March 2021 Staffordshire’s HWRCs were brought back in house. Part of the business case for this was to invest in new machinery to help the running of all 14 centres across the county.

 

If agreed and ordered, the new high tech JCBs will replace the previous machines, which are coming to the end of their time at the HWRCs.

 

Cabinet member for Environment, Infrastructure and Climate Change at SCC, Simon Tagg, said: “In Staffordshire, we’re shaping the future of waste management. This new machinery will help our continued commitment to a more sustainable, efficient and resident focused service.

 

“Waste minimisation is critical to reducing carbon and contributing sustainable living where the materials that would traditionally have gone into the waste stream are recycled instead.

 

“We want to make our centres as efficient as possible, and procuring modern machines is one way we can make this happen.”

 

The new machines will be in operation across Staffordshire’s HWRCs in the near future.
