Animal health and nutrition company Agrimin Ltd – world leader in animal health and nutrition – has invested in further baling technology from Yorkshire-based Riverside Waste Machinery.
The business has always been passionate about its duties to recycle, and the recent purchase of a second baler – an RWM 75 – has helped them manage this more efficiently.
The company – which has over 35 years’ experience in the development, manufacture and marketing of high quality livestock vitamin technology for the agricultural industry – has gained a reputation as the ‘go-to’ provider for farmers wanting to provide the best level of care for their animals.
The firm has been using a Riverside baler – the RWM250 – since 2015. But now handling two waste streams – plastic and cardboard – in high volumes, it found that one machine alone could not keep up with demand.
Gareth Stafford, production manager at Agrimin, said: “We have always been happy with our Riverside equipment, so it made perfect commercial sense for them to provide us with our next baler. Jonathan Oldfield, MD of Riverside, was once again on the ball in pinpointing our requirements, and delivering the goods on time, and to our expectations.”
Agrimin are now baling two tonnes of waste per month in their machines, to produce an average of 12 bales which are then bought by a recycling waste contractor.
Gareth added: “We no longer have a fire hazard in the form of extra waste stored loosely on the site – everything is contained which keeps our working environment neater and safer. We’re not only strengthening our recycling agenda, but there is also a cost benefit for our firm – the whole thing makes perfect sense!”
Riverside is renowned for supplying a wide range of cardboard and plastic balers, and last year celebrated its 20th anniversary in business. The company has recently launched a secure online shop, enabling visitors to buy their baling consumables and accessories quicker and with more ease.
