Waste management machinery designer and manufacturer Whitham Mills has designed, installed and commissioned a roll cage tipping system for Tesco’s food waste. The system, which has replaced more than 700 compactors throughout Tesco stores, helps reduce the cost of compactor lifts, cleaning, maintenance and replacement.

The system replaces over 700 compactors at Tesco stores and is designed to reduce the cost of compactor lifts, cleaning, maintenance and replacement.
This was installed after the retailer sought to incorporate segregated food waste into its reverse logistics operation – which sees food waste collected in-store before being bulked at one of 10 ‘recycling units’ run by the retailer.
The full inventory of installations includes: 18 patented roll cage tippers, two 4-metre high patented roll cage tippers, nine heavy duty conveyors and 11 patented compactor bin/roll cage tippers. Tipping units have been installed at: Widnes, Doncaster, Livingstone, Avonmouth, Southampton, Didcot, Dagenham, Snodland, Peterborough and Hinckley.
