Hamilton Waste & Recycling has invested in its Loanhead plant with a £1.3m green loan from HSBC UK.
The company used the funding to purchase state-of-the-art machinery that uses the latest screening and air separation technology to sort construction and demolition waste.
Materials, from wood to stone, are recovered through the sorting process, then washed and separated before being resold to the building.
According to the Edinburgh-based company, the recycling process not only ensures that no unnecessary waste occurs, but also reduces the need for new raw materials to be manufactured.
Robin Stevenson, Managing Director of Hamilton Waste & Recycling, said: “This new, sophisticated aggregate recycling plant will serve us well in achieving our circular economy ambitions. With this green loan from HSBC UK, we look forward to significantly reducing the impact of the construction and waste sectors on the environment.
Marcus Sangster, Relationship Manager HSBC Equipment Finance, added: “HSBC UK Green Loans are key to our net zero ambitions at HSBC UK, so we are proud to be working with Hamilton Waste to help reduce associated carbon emissions. to the building.
