Astech Group’s Tailored Waste Management Solution: A Mining Success Story

Home / Blog

As seasoned leaders in the waste management industry, Astech Group thrives on delivering integrated waste solutions that are not just safe, efficient, and reliable but also customized to meet the unique needs of our diverse clientele. One such distinctive project took us to the heart of Western NSW, where we collaborated with a customer servicing a prominent mine. This venture showcased our commitment to innovation and adaptability in providing effective waste management solutions.

Our client is a frontrunner in the waste management industry, boasting expertise in offering integrated waste solutions for commercial, industrial, and domestic waste. What sets them apart is their extensive experience in underground waste management, making them a knowledgeable partner for any liquid waste challenge, including oil/sludge, acid, caustic, and more.

The challenge presented by our client was clear – they needed a substantial number of hook lift binsand front lift bins for the mining site. Complicating matters was the absence of a front lift truck,prompting us to modify a 3m front lift bin, creating a hybrid solution combining features of a skipand a front lift bin. The order comprised 15 cubic meter hook lift bins and 3m front lift bins, eachmeticulously designed to withstand the rugged conditions of a mining environment. The 3m front liftbin, a unique addition to our repertoire, showcased our capacity for custom solutions.

In a mining context, efficient waste management is integral to maintaining a safe and environmentally responsible workplace. Our waste bins played a crucial role in collecting all solid waste generated during mining operations, contributing to a cleaner and safer working environment. While the project did not present significant challenges, the customization of the 3m front lift bin required us to adapt our robotic welder. This modification ensured the precise and efficient production of bins tailored to the client’s specifications.

The entire process, from order placement to delivery, was completed within 6-7 weeks, a testament to our commitment to timely project completion. To meet the demands, we utilized our semi-truck and trailer and also hired a rigid truck and trailer to double deliveries, underscoring the importance of having our own fleet. While the geographic location in Western NSW did not pose specific challenges, entering the mine required adherence to stringent regulations. Our team seamlessly navigated legal and logistical considerations, ensuring a smooth project execution.

The customer’s satisfaction was evident with the service and the quality of our bins. Subsequent orders from the client underscore their confidence in Astech Group’s solutions. The delivered waste management solution significantly impacted the customer’s day-to-day operations, thanks to the user-friendly design of our products. The ease of use has streamlined waste management processes, contributing to operational efficiency.

Astech Group is immensely proud to have played a pivotal role in enhancing waste management practices in the mining sector. This unique project exemplifies our dedication to tailoring solutions that not only meet but exceed our clients’ expectations. We extend our gratitude for the opportunity and invite businesses facing distinctive waste management challenges to explore the Astech Group difference.
