Industrial canopy keeps recyclate dry and profitable

Background to industrial canopy customer

Viridor is one of the UK’s leading recycling, renewable energy and waste management companies. Working with over 90 local authorities and thousands of private sector customers their wide range of services includes waste collections, recycling, skips, bins and fully integrated contracts. Viridor transforms over two million tonnes of materials into high quality recyclate and yet more into 130 megawatts of renewable energy every year.

Requirement for an industrial canopy

At the company’s Trafford Park site in Manchester they were running out of covered storage space for baled recyclate. In order to get the best possible price for their recyclate it needed to be dry so it was important to get some kind of industrial canopy cover quickly. Once this was sorted, the company could then plan their long-term storage requirements at the site.

Industrial canopy solution

Having worked with Aganto on two previous projects Phil Baker, Project Manager at Viridor, made contact and explained the situation. Within a matter of weeks from first enquiry, Aganto provided from their ex-hire stock a 10m x 10m industrial canopy building with mesh walling for an economical but highly practical solution to keep the wet off.

Benefit of the Aganto industrial canopy

“The industrial canopy building is simple but highly cost-effective and functional providing us with the weather protection we urgently needed. When it comes to site development our options are now much broader thanks to Aganto and their temporary buildings. Over the past few years the fast response and flexible hire contracts have enabled us to recover swiftly from unpredicted damage, carry out trial waste programmes and, with this last project, keep our processed recyclate dry and profitable."
