Reducing the Handling of Waste

Inefficiencies that may occur on your site, whether it be; operative working hours or machinery costs – if reduced can save you valuable time and money.

Many sites have had concerns relating to both operative safety and waste removal processes.

Initially waste from the site had to be loaded into mobile waste bins and then transported off site – this process was inefficient and posed a safety hazard to operatives carrying out the work.

To address the problem, site managers and tele-handling suppliers have discussed a method in which they could make this loading process one that was more efficient and effective for the workforce, community and environment.

  • A solution was arrived upon, which led to the creation of a rotating arm on the tele-handler to reduce manual handling of waste by operatives;
  • It also cleared the work much faster, which subsequently made the entire process a quicker one.

This idea helped to increase the waste removal efficiency by 60%, reduce the number of operatives required and allowed the site to keep work areas clear and free of waste.
