Another boost for the 3 Rs at Wheal Jane
Recent recycling equipment trials have enabled us to reprocess this material on site to provide various, more useful products, including stone and hardcore to improve our roadways, and topsoil for use in our reclamation and landscaping work.
Maintaining roadways on the site to a good standard becomes particularly important in winter time, ensuring that vehicles can move around the site easily and, most importantly, safely.
The trial has confirmed that a significant proportion of the material is suitable for recycling in this way and may provide further opportunities in due course.
Another step forward for Wheal Jane’s programme to ‘Reduce, Reuse and Recycle’.
