We implement a zero waste policy
Here at Wotmix we are fully aware of the impact the ready mix concrete sector can have on the environment.
This is why we implement a zero waste policy, in the production of ready mix concrete, waste can be a big issue. From the cleaning of truck mixers, to dust in the atmosphere. This is what makes us different.
Waste water: approximately 98% of the rain water that falls across our site is collected in to storage and reclamation tanks, the water is then used throughout a number of different process’s. The first is washing down our site, we do this to keep the dust at a minimum. Once this has been completed the water heads back to the reclamation tanks.
The second step is the cleaning of our vehicles. At the end of each day all of our delivery vehicles return to the plant and the last job is to ensure they are washed out and clean ready for the following day. This can take around 2000 litres per vehicle, this is where the reclaimed water comes into use, once the water has been used to clean our vehicles it is then stored in tanks where the water is agitated around the clock to prevent the suspended fines from dropping out of the water. The reason we do this, is the reclaimed water used in the washing of our vehicles makes far better concrete than ordinary water.
The third and final step for our water is to the production plant, the water that once fell as rain has washed down our site and cleaned our vehicles, now it is on its way to being one of the main ingredients in a batch of concrete.
