£100k investment in Sheffield site
A Sheffield waste management business has invested more than £100,000 to improve service and ensure the long-term viability of the site.
CSG has upgraded its facilities at the Douglas Road site to reduce turnaround times for customers offloading waste sludge and solids for processing by the specialist company.
Jen Cartmell, treatment director of CSG: “This investment represents our commitment as a business to look for innovative technology to process and recycle as many waste components as possible and therefore reduce the amount of waste sent to landfill.
“The former Frogsons’ site is an important part of our national network of waste processing facilities and the upgrades we have made will enable us to receive sludge and solids from customers much more quickly than before, reducing downtime for their drivers.
“Last year alone, the Sheffield site took in more than 70,000 tonnes of waste, reducing the amount of material going to landfill or incineration.”
Investment includes installation of dewatering valves on tanks, to increase the efficiency of gravity separation of oil, water & solids, and a bespoke offload filter system to screen out heavy solids which could otherwise damage pumping systems.
The site can accommodate a range of vehicles delivering waste oils, oily waters, oily sludge and other oil contaminated wastes for processing.
The company, which has 26 other sites across the UK, is one of the largest privately-owned industrial and domestic environmental waste management groups in Britain. The business works on the goal of diverting waste from landfill, recovering and recycling as much material as possible.
CSG was founded as a one-man sewage collection business in rural Hampshire more than 80 years ago and now employs a national workforce of nearly 500 people.
