Peter Woolnough from Reach it! – Move it! – Crush it! organised an experiment on a job using one of his crushers in order to determine how much material could be reduced from leaving a site, and to see if it is possible to produce all the base material from the waste material that would otherwise have been removed from the site and taken to a transfer site.
On one landscape job Peter crushed the current drive surface, which was a mixture of tarmac and concrete, and then screened the soil and sub-base dig out from beneath the drive. The video below shows the results of the experiment.
