Re-using natures limited resources Modular wash Plant. Re-cycling and Aggregates.
Waste Transfer Station

Waste Transfer

Ruttle Plant with the recent investment in a new Modular Washing Plant, operate a Waste Transfer Station from their facility in Chorley.  To recycle and process various products and are now the leading supplier of re-cycled aggregates, sands and soils.

With the recent acquisition of local quarries and 2 further landfill sites, this will maintain Ruttle’s position at the forefront of our market competitors.

All re-cycled products are regularly tested by independent UKAS accredited testing laboratories, and are manufactured in line with WRAP and Highways England Specification.

With a fleet in excess of 50 tipper wagons, our products can be quickly and efficiently distributed across the North West.

The Ruttle Wash Plant

Ruttle had undertaken the infrastructure works themselves to ensure tight programme milestones were met on schedule.

Ruttle’s Modular Wash Plant was manufactured by C.D.E., who have transported the elements of the Wash Plant from their facility in Ireland and attended Ruttle’s depot to re-assemble the components

With the various elements of the Wash Plant previously assembled and dis-assembled in Ireland and tagged and transported making it a simple task for the C.D.E., workforce to complete in a matter of weeks.

With temporary generators in place, it is a quick process to commission and carry out on site testing of all equipment.

How they work

With the surface water run-off from 13 acres of Ruttle’s Chorley facility, channelled to underground storage tanks, adjacent the Wash Plant.  The various spoils stored / delivered to the Plant are fed via a reinforced Concrete ramp, by a large, wheeled, front loading shovel.

From there, the material will be saturated and washed, rinsed with C.D.E.’s washing equipment to remove any harmful or hazardous materials, to reduce moisture content to produce a product which will be separated into various stockpiles via conveyor.

What Aggregates do we supply

We are committed to recycling in order to, reduce the impact waste has on the environment. We believe persevering and reusing natural resources, where possible, is the first step towards a sustainable future.

We recycle as many waste types as possible, which arise from construction and demolition, and are recycled and supplied as Recycled Aggregates or Recycled Materials that can be used again.

All recycled products are manufactured in line with WRAP’s quality protocol and Highway Works Specifications. Our aggregate recycling method involves a carefully managed process of chemical testing, screening, crushing and grading.

Our recycled aggregates are available in different sizes and grades and can be used for many different applications from 6F2 for road construction to recycled soils for landscaping and gardens.
