Australian recycler chooses Edge Innovate

By Steve Ducker20 May 2021

Australian recycler Cleanaway has opened a mobile construction and demolition waste recycling centre manufactured by screening and shredding specialist Edge Innovate as it looks to revamp operations to meet modern market requirements.

The plant, located in Brooklyn, Victoria, was installed by Edge’s Australian distributor Focus Enviro and draws on two similar installations in Queensland.

It features an Edge TRT622 trommel screen, a Slayer XL shredder and four-bay picking station.

After initial pre-picking to remove visible items such as large slabs of concrete and metal, the material is pushed into the shredder. In addition to standard shredding, the machine features a heavy-duty magnet that removes metals for later recovery.

The material then moves through a trommel that separates soils and fines for classification and disposal. The remaining material – anything larger than 20 mm (0.8 in) – is sent to the picking station via a TS-Series Edge stacker conveyor system.

“With landfill levies rising, we recognised the need to adapt to market requirements,” said Cleanaway regional manager Karl David.

“We went through and identified that there was real potential to recover more from our transfer stations and really invest in increasing our recovery of materials that would otherwise go into landfill.

“We’ve been through a journey to review that and identified sites such as Brooklyn, where we could start recycling significantly to avoid landfill and improve our business.”
