This is undoubtably Drotlor Plants` core business activity.
Working closely with both aggregate suppliers and brick manufacturers the work entails the excavation and storage of topsoils, subsoils, overburden mineral and clays in accordance with Defra guidelines.
To enable the quarry operators excavation activities to be cost effective, We generally carry them out in conjunction with their restoration programmes.
Working jointly with the companies Landscape Architects and the Environment Agency we have restored previous mineral workings to arable lant, nature reserves, a water sports centre and football pitches for a Premier division club.
As a result our proven experience in winning, stockpiling and blending clays, we now undertake long term contracts with major brick manufacturers.
Landfill Construction Services
Drotlor Plant carried out the earthworks and leachate drainage works for the first ever landfill site to commercially generate electricity from the methane gas produced by biodegradation of waste. At the time the project was thought to be so innovative it was featured on `Tomorrows World`
Since then Drotlor Plant has carried out numerous contracts for the coumtrys leading waste management companies. The work has been the construction of landfill cells, including the provision of the mineral liner from site won materials and `engineered` to achieve the requirements of the specification together with the installation of leachate drains.
In addition We have also carried out the capping operation of landfill sites with both site won and imported materials including the laying of geosynthetic clay liner.
