Recycling Factory Cleaning in Liverpool.
HLS Cleaning have recently completed the high level cleaning of an active recycling factory in Liverpool.
The recycling factory reclaimed used plastic from bottles and bags and innovatively recycled this waste into useful products such as furniture, plastic ground protection boards and cable protection wrapping.
The machinery used during the recycling process extracts large quantities of plastic based dust; this flammable dust had covered all areas of the factory and particularly all high level areas such as roof panels, cable trays, supporting steelworks and ducting.
The flammable nature of the dust created a great fire risk within the factory and we were asked to remove this flammable waste from all high level areas.
We were required to work alongside the factory, in collaboration to ensure that recycling could continue throughout our works. A planned schedule was agreed and we were able to fully adhere to this and complete the high level cleaning in time and within budget through difficult circumstances.
We used powered access to reach all high level areas and then used industrial strength specialist hoovers to remove the dust that was inches thick and resembled icicles in many areas; we were required in some areas to design and create our own pole systems to enable us to reach over recycling machinery.
This was a difficult project in an active environment and atmosphere; health and safety was of paramount importance and our RAMS, as always were required to be accurate and comprehensive in an environment where our client was a superb example of how health and safety should be undertaken in the workplace.
