C&D waste recycling undertaken in record time

The 2,750m long runway at Salzburg airport has recently reopened after a 5 week shutdown for renovation works with a Rubble Master crusher making a considerable impact to the project.

A compact crusher was supplied by Rubble Master to crush 8,500t of material on site at Salzburg airport which would be immediately reused. “This job was a challenge due to its tight time schedule,” says Klaus Weickl, managing director of Weickl Erdbau GmbH. “We only had four weeks to complete all the work.”  The rented RM 100GO! crusher the company used was able to work directly on site at Salzburg Airport and in under a week was able to crush all the material from the almost 2,750m of runway into a recyclable final aggregate. This was used for the sub-structure of the new runway. “The recycling of C&D waste creates a loop in which transport and material costs are saved and environmental impact is reduced,” says Klaus Weickl.

The core business of Weickl Erdbau GmbH, which is based in Hallein, is earth moving and demolition. Due to the wide range of jobs it deals with, it makes sense for the company to rent a compact crusher for certain contracts. Weickl has been using this rental concept for several years. Crushers and screens can be easily rented from Rubble Master in Austria and Switzerland, meaning that the contractor remains flexible and gets the right product for the respective location and time frame. 

Rubble Master's quality and service is one of the reasons why the rental model is so appreciated by business owners. Klaus Weickl has been working with the crushers made in Linz for many years: “At a construction site on the A99 motorway in Munich we also had a Rubble Master machine in operation, the RM 120GO!. Both the performance of the crusher and the handling for the employees was significantly better than that of competing products.”
