It's been a bumper year for investment at R.Collard...
Having recently celebrated their 25th anniversary in 2019, R Collard Ltd is one of the leading demolition and waste management companies in the South of England. From their headquarters in Hampshire and supporting depots across Hampshire, Berkshire and Surrey the company offer an end-to-end suite of services to the construction industry and domestic customers, all with a core ethos of sustainability and a zero-to-landfill target. Services include demolition, waste management and recycling, haulage, aggregates, earthworks, skip hire and most recently sustainably produced ready-mixed concrete.
Our commitment to the highest standard of delivery runs through every project they take on. Their integrated demolition, waste management, haulage and recycling systems enable them to provide sustainable, closed-loop solutions that contribute to the circular economy of the South East.
The last 12 months has seen significant investment in their plant and fleet including:
New fixed line crushing plant:
A new state-of-the-art fixed line crushing plant has been operational since May which allows them to produce 250 tonnes of high-grade recycled aggregates an hour, increasing their current capacity by over 200%. As well as increasing their production of recycled aggregates this is also used as feedstock for their sustainably produced ready mix concrete.
