Family run Yorkshire business, Palmer Landscapes has launched Yorkshire’s first drive-thru service for concrete, mortar and screed products.

The revolutionary new service allows the likes of builders, landscapers, brick layers, groundworkers and DIYers to pay as they go for small scale building and landscaping projects, all in a bid to reduce the industry’s contribution to landfill.

Based in Leeds, Palmer Landscapes, a family-run business which has been running for 50 years invested and installed the fully automated, self-service station called fibo Collect this month. The investment is in response to rising costs and cement waste in the site mixing process, not to mention the environmental impact of delivering small quantities to site and the amount of leftover building materials going to landfill.

Adam Palmer, Director at Palmer Landscapes says, “We’re excited to launch this new service in Yorkshire. When we first came across the concept and saw it in action, we knew that it would be perfect for the building and landscaping trades. It’s a great opportunity to showcase the commitment the industry has to improving how much goes to landfill. The service is highly innovative, with a built-in washing system and waste disposal plant. Cleaning the mixer between batches ensures higher recipe accuracy, automated, shorter cleaning time and a washout recycling unit that separates the water for sanitisation and uses in new batches.”

Purchasing concrete, mortar and screed in the traditional way from a local ready-mix supplier can be discouraging for smaller businesses. It generally involves a minimum order of 1m3 and significant waiting or delivery times as it’s primarily for high volume usage. With this new eco-friendly click and collect service, customers can select from a range of recipes in volumes starting from just 0.25m3. The material is then carefully mixed, poured and dispensed from a conveyor belt onto the back of a truck, trailer or pick up or directly into a 0.25m3 tub in less than 5 minutes. And don’t worry, it doesn’t make a mess of your vehicle, pouring is seamless!

How is it different to other solutions?

  • Save time – with our automated mixing technology, the mixing and pouring cycle is typically under five minutes.
  • Hassle free collection – you simply park up, load up and drive away.
  • Flexible – order from as little as 0.25m³ or as much as you like. The machine can make up to 16m3 an hour.
  • You only pay for what you use – no minimum 1m³ charge!
  • No wastage – you get exactly the volume of concrete, mortar or screed you need.
  • Less mess – eliminates the need to set up and clean mixes on site.
  • Long lasting – choose from 1, 2 or 3 day mortar.
  • Eco-friendly – you’re helping the planet as the solution is less wasteful than traditional methods and reduces the transport miles in concrete.
  • Hassle-free – it requires minimal organisation, simply turn up when you need to and select your mix to collect and take away.
