2019 Improvements at Canford Recycling Centre | Commercial Recycling

Improvement work at Canford Recycling Centre in 2019

We have now reached the half-way point of the year, and so far, we’ve been busy upgrading our Canford Recycling Centre to further improve the disposal services we can offer to businesses, tradespeople and waste contractors operating in Poole and Bournemouth.

Where is Canford Recycling Centre? It is on Arena Way, off Magna Road, Wimborne, Dorset, BH21 3BW

In this article, we cover a number of the key improvements made to the site, as well as some of our future plans and upcoming developments.

The addition of new bays

We’ve added some new concrete lego block style bays to allow smaller ‘Man & Van’ type vehicles to be segregated from the larger commercial vehicles who use the site.

It is expected this particular improvement will make it easier for tradespeople, contractors and businesses to better utilise our Wimborne Recycling Centre in various commercial vehicles, such as; skip lorries, transit vans, pick-ups, tippers and trucks.

New concrete areas

A large 1700m2 area, towards the rear of our site, has now been concreted to provide better driving conditions throughout the site. This enhancement should also contribute to a reduction in tipping turnaround times.

The concrete used in this project was supplied by AMS Concrete and benefited from the inclusion of recycled aggregates, which were produced at Canford Inert Recycling Centre.

New weighbridge for 2019

We finished the installation of a brand new replacement weighbridge in May 2019. The work was essential to ensure all loads continued to be weighed accurately and vehicles can turnaround quickly to reduce queues and waiting time.

What is a weighbridge? It is a large set of scales installed to weigh road vehicles and their contents.

At all our local tipping facilities, vehicles are weighed before and after tipping, this process ensures the weight of the waste being disposed of is accurately calculated and charged accordingly.

Affordable, efficient waste disposal service where customers only pay for the weight of the waste they actually tip!

New waste recycling system

In June 2019, to aid us in moving closer to a zero waste to landfill position we commissioned a new waste recycling system at Canford Recycling Centre. The market-leading system includes screeners, wind sifters, overband magnets, ferrous metal recovery and a five bay picking station for improved manual and mechanical waste sorting and recycling


Upcoming improvements

Although we’ve already achieved a number of great results this year, we still have a few key projects in the pipeline…
MATA Construction are currently carrying out a 24 week refurbishment programme of ‘Building 2’ following the major fire back in July 2018. You can read more about this incident on our news page here.

The refurbishment is due to be completed in October 2019

The role of this building will be to allow Commercial Recycling to successfully process, recover and recycle higher volumes of waste, which are generated through the fulfilment of various contracts.

Building 2 will allow for larger volumes of locally produced waste to be dealt with, which will help to minimise the amount of ‘waste miles’ currently undertaken.
