warehouse space on the site so we could accommodate the increased volume of material we were receiving from the locale.
In December 2013, we signed a large, long-term contract with a major paper manufacturer in Scotland which would provide the depot with a guaranteed intake of 10,000 tons per annum of high grade recovered paper. In order to provide the processing and handling capacity that would be required of the contract, Highlander acquired many assets which would allow us to provide a first class service to all customers we serviced. Highlander took ownership of our Linwood Avenue site on 14th April 2014 with view to turning it into a first class, modern recycling facility capable of processing up to 1000 tons of recovered paper per week.
We also purchased and installed modern, safe and efficient recycling machinery to allow us to process all the materials we were receiving at that time and to allow us to grow in a responsible and sustainable manner. We now have a Lindemann Bigro 120 fully automatic baling press and an Imabe 100H fully automatic baling press, giving us the largest baling capacity of any independent recycling company in Scotland. Coupled with a 2.7 meter wide BOA reels splitter, Hammermill shredder and 4 JCB Tele-trucks, this represents one of the most modern, safe and cost effective processing and handling capacities in the land!
Today, we also have full remote access CCTV coverage, fully alarmed and monitored site, electronic security entry control and security barrier, meaning your recovered paper is recycled in a secure manner with the highest standards of integrity.
