JCB JS20 boosts productivity at WRC Recycling

JCB JS20 boosts productivity at WRC Recycling

A leading Scottish recycling firm is using a new JCB JS20MH materials handler to process construction and demolition waste.

Renfrewshire-based WRC Recycling purchased the machine as part of a major investment in equipment to work at its new £4 million state-of-the-art materials recycling facilities in its hometown of Inchinnan.

The JS20MH – complete with hydraulically raised cab and selector grab - is responsible for sorting material and loading a new screening plant. That combination can process 40 tonnes per hour - contributing to a 90% productivity increase in the tonnage WRC can recycle compared to its previous operations.

WRC Recycling Commodities & Operations Director, Colin Blakely said: “The JS20MH is performing very well and the operator likes it which is a key factor for us. The elevated cab provides maximum visibility to safely, quickly and efficiently sort through the material before loading. We see it as a key machine to feed the plant and help us drive and increase our future productivity. The service support on the machine from Scot JCB is also second to none.”

WRC Recycling is a family-run waste management and skip-hire business. It offers bespoke waste management solutions to residential and corporate clients, including bulk waste haulage, skip hire services, confidential paper shredding, waste material disposal, and recycling as part of its commitment to support Scotland’s drive towards a ‘zero-waste’ economy. The new JCB JS20MH model joins seven existing JCB 538-60 Agri Super Loadall telescopic handlers in the WRC Recycling fleet.

The JS20MH materials handler is powered by the JCB DieselMAX 97kW Stage V compliant engine and features a hydraulically raised cab for increased visibility. Key features of this dedicated waste handling machine include a wide core radiator and reverse fan, climate control, five halogen work lights and a heated air suspension seat.
