Forward thinking organisations are embracing the circular economy by using recycled products and environmentally sustainable processes. One company – a leading road and infrastructure construction organisation – is currently expanding its operations to include sustainable asphalt production using waste road material.
For EPA monitoring, reporting and compliance purposes, the waste material must be weighed each time a truck enters the recycling plant. The repurposed finished product is also weighed as it leaves the plant.
At the Company’s recycling plant, there was an old weighbridge that hadn’t been used since the site was purchased 11 years ago. The company was keen to repurpose the old weighbridge if practical so they contacted NWI for an assessment.
Remarkably, the old weighbridge deck and pit were in excellent condition – particularly as they had been abandoned and left to the elements for years. However, the system needed refurbishing to meet the client’s needs.
