About the CDE project with Brewster Bros
Brewster Bros, a family-run business in Livingston, is officially launching the largest recycling plant in the UK. The plant, featuring a CDE state-of-the-art wet processing system, will provide waste management services and recycled aggregates to builders, construction companies, ground workers, civil contractors and utility contractors from its new high-tech facility in Scotland’s central belt.
The recycling centre has a capacity to recycle 400,000 tonnes of construction, demolition, and excavation waste per year. In line with the Scottish Government’s Circular Economy Strategy ‘Making Things Last’, the plant can process and recycle soils and rubble, collected by Brewster Bros’ fleet of tipper lorries from construction sites, into high-value sand and gravel - reducing waste disposal costs for Brewster Bros’ customers while maximising waste recovery. The waste collected is not subject to landfill tax and the recycled aggregates produced are not subject to the aggregates levy which enables the business to keep its prices competitive.
The CDE wet processing system was specifically designed to process difficult construction and demolition waste materials and optimise material recovery. It is a closed loop system with a full water management system that has been installed on an existing landfill site with no ponds or lagoons.
The installation of the AquaCycle A600 & CF8000 Centrifuge has allowed Brewster Brothers to recycle 90% of the water used during the washing process.
The equipment used includes:
- R2500 primary screening unit
- M4500 modular washing plant
- AggMax 253R
- AquaCycle A600 thickener
- Centrifuge CF8000
The M4500 produces two washed aggregates (4-40mm and 40-80mm) and two sands (0-4mm and 0-2mm). The 4-40mm material passes to the AggMax 253R which is ideally suited to ensure maximum product yield from clay-bound materials. Three scrubbed recycled aggregates are produced: 4-10mm, 10-20mm and 20 – 40mm. The plant also includes sliding dual sand conveyors which will give Brewster Bros the flexibility to blend sand to meet any specific grading requirements.

Commenting on the CDE installation, Scott Brewster, Director at Brewster Bros, said:
“It’s an exciting day as we officially launch the UK’s largest recycling facility of this type. Our number one aim is to treat and recycle construction and demolition waste as a resource, ensuring zero waste to landfill.
“Through significant investment into state-of-the-art recycling techniques provided by the plant supplier CDE Global, we are looking forward to shaping the future of the recycling industry across Scotland and beyond. This new plant should act as a game-changer for the construction industry, by saving money for our customers and ensuring they can dispose of their construction and demolition waste in a sustainable manner.”
