£1.3 million Green Loan helps Hamilton Waste & Recycling buy specialist new equipment

AN EAST Lothian waste management business is set to prevent several thousand tonnes of industrial waste from going to landfills each year thanks to a £1.3 million Green Loan from HSBC UK.

Hamilton Waste & Recycling, based at Carberry, near Whitecraig, has used the funding to purchase state-of-the-art machinery that uses the latest screening and air separation technology to sort through construction and demolition waste.

Materials from wood to stone are salvaged through the sorting process, then washed and separated before being sold back to the building trade.

The recycling process not only ensures that no unnecessary waste occurs, but it also reduces the need for new raw materials to be manufactured.

The company is installing the new equipment – a Parnaby cyclone technology wash plant – at its site in Loanhead, Midlothian, and expects the machinery to be up and running by the end of the year.

Robin Stevenson, managing director at Hamilton Waste & Recycling, said: “This new, sophisticated aggregate recycling plant will stand us in good stead for achieving our circular economy ambitions.

“We’re looking forward to significantly reducing the impact the construction and waste sectors have on the environment.”

Marcus Sangster, relationship director, HSBC Equipment Finance, added: “HSBC UK Green Loans are key to our net-zero ambitions at HSBC UK, so we are proud to work with Hamilton Waste to help to reduce the carbon emissions associated with the building trade.”
