Wickham waste management company launches new building material
A WASTE management company near Wickham has launched a new building material to be used for roads and pavements.
TJ Group, which has a waste station at Bar End, has developed ReclaMix - a recycled substance to be used in the construction of motorways, A-roads and footpaths.
The Department of Transport has approved the trademarked product which is crushed at the firm’s new processing plant in Portfield in Chichester.
Steve Grant, commercial manager, said: "We've turned an environmental problem into a benefit, an expense into an asset, providing a sustainable solution to customers in a world of ever-increasing disposal costs.
"Utility contractors have a significant waste disposal issue because tarmacadam is commonly not accepted at certain disposal points although it is inert and very recyclable.
"ReclaMix is a cost-effective and environmentally-friendly alternative to other sub-base materials and follows months of research and development."
The firm has already sold in excess of 100,000 tonnes of the recycled product to customers.
The group also operates at Airport Industrial Park in Portsmouth, Harts Farm Way in Havant and Yapton in West Sussex.
