Sorted in West Lothian

Buchanan Skip Hire

A West Lothan-based skip hire and recycling firm has purchased a new JCB JS20MH – a dedicated material handler, purpose-built for the waste industry – which went into full production this year.

Buchanan Skip Hire has bought the new model, which joins two JCB Loadall telescopic handlers – a 541-70 and a 550-80 Wastemaster – in its fleet. All three are used to sort waste at the company’s own recycling plant, which is fully licensed by SEPA. The site receives in excess of 20,000 tonnes of materials annually from the Edinburgh, Falkirk and West Lothian regions and currently recycles over 80% of this – drastically reducing the amount of waste going to landfill sites.
