Illegal Waste Dump Clean up:

From Mess to Progress – Earth Equipments Trommel and Vacuum revolutionise waste cleanup.



At Earth Equipment, we take pride in providing cutting-edge solutions for waste management challenges. Recently, we partnered with Statom Group to tackle a site marred by being used as an illegal waste dump. Leveraging our high-performance Trommel and the efficient Screenpod Vacuum, we embarked on a mission to restore the site and reclaim valuable resources. The results have been exceptional, with our machinery delivering outstanding screening precision and removing a significant portion of the waste content in a single pass.

Revolutionising Waste Screening with Earth Equipment’s Trommel:

Our Trommel, designed with precision and efficiency in mind, was the perfect choice for this challenging task. Set to screen the material at 20mm, the Trommel seamlessly separated the waste, producing clean fines that could be reused effectively. This intelligent screening process ensured that valuable resources were not wasted and could be reclaimed for future use.

A Game-Changer: The Screenpod Vacuum:

Complementing the Trommel’s exceptional performance, our Screenpod Vacuum proved to be a game-changer. Positioning the Screenpod vacuum head on the rear oversize conveyor, the Vacuum swiftly and effectively pulled out a staggering 70% of the rubbish content in a single pass. This remarkable efficiency drastically reduced the volume of waste that needed further handling, streamlining the cleanup process.

Handling Wet Material with Precision:

The site’s challenging condition with wet material posed no obstacle for our Trommel and Vacuum duo. The Trommel’s fines and the Vacuum’s waste removal process efficiently managed the moisture, allowing the residual oversize material to dry out. This intelligent approach facilitated the re-handling of the material, ultimately leading to improved quality.

Sustainable Resource Reclamation:

At Earth Equipment, sustainability is at the heart of what we do. The success of this project not only highlighted the efficiency of our machinery but also showcased our commitment to sustainable resource reclamation. By extracting clean fines and significantly reducing waste content, we ensured that valuable resources were recycled, contributing to a greener and cleaner environment.


Our collaboration with Statom Group and the use of Earth Equipment’s Trommel and Screenpod Vacuum resulted in an impressive transformation of an illegal waste dump site. The precision screening, efficient waste removal, and sustainable resource reclamation have set new standards in waste management. As we continue to innovate and provide cutting-edge solutions, Earth Equipment remains dedicated to empowering responsible waste management practices, paving the way for a more sustainable future.  Contact Earth Equipment today, we’re here to help!
