NWH Group announces a significant investment totalling £1.1m

The NWH Group, a leading, family-owned, national waste management and recycling business, has invested £1.1m in a new state-of-the-art construction and demolition waste processing plant for its Newcastle site in Blaydon.

The new Kiverco equipment, which replaces the existing trommel-based materials recycling plant that is being re-purposed elsewhere in the business, is scheduled to be commissioned and fully operational during May 2024.

Gavin Money, Managing Director at The NWH Group, said: “The new processing plant demonstrates our commitment to continuing to grow our business in the northeast of England and our continued investment in our Blaydon site.

“We have the benefit of experience with this technology at our super-plant in Edinburgh so have refined this solution to suit the new installation, and are excited about the capabilities, efficiencies and wider benefits that it will bring to the region in terms of construction materials recycling capabilities.”

The new plant enables NWH Group to divert an additional 1,500 tonnes of material from landfill per year, which equates to 700,515 kgCO₂e. The project has also enabled the business to redesign the site layout for more efficient movement of material and it is expected that this will reduce fuel usage by around 10-20%, saving a further 64,734 kgCO₂e.

The new equipment is supplied by Kiverco, which is widely regarded as an industry leader in tough and sustainable recycling plant. It has the capability to process a wide range of construction and demolition waste including wood, plastics, poly, cardboard, metals and rubble, as well as PVC window frames. The Blaydon site also recovers glass, green waste, soil and stone, plasterboard, cables.

Marcus McAlinden, Sales Manager at Kiverco, said: “We are delighted to collaborate with NWH Group on this project. Its commitment to driving positive change in the industry aligns perfectly with Kiverco’s mission to deliver innovative and sustainable recycling solutions. Our plants are the world’s toughest and built to last – a critical factor in today’s world.”
