Komptech kits out SITA site
SITA UK has sourced a complete green waste composting system from Komptech UK for its Lower Trent open windrow site in north Lincolnshire.
The move is part of an ongoing rationalisation of operational strategy at the company’s composting sites nationwide. It switched from contracting out the composting operation to purchasing its own machinery and operating it in-house. This programme is to be rolled out to other sites as the contracts come up for renewal.
A Crambo shredder, Mustang trommel screen and X60 Topturn windrow turner will be operated by the SITA composting team at Lower Trent, which will receive full technical and service support from Komptech UK.
The site handles up to 25,000 tonnes of kerbside and civic amenity site green waste per year, producing quality compost for end markets such as horticulture and landscaping.
SITA’s sites are being reconfigured to manufacture products to market specifications, so machinery requirements will be assessed on an individual basis.
