Successful green recycling
J. & C. J. Baars Hoofddorp started in the 70s as a hauling operation. The portfolio soon expanded to include bulk material supply, soil decontamination, and the acceptance and processing of green waste. The subsidiary De Breekhoorn B.V. was founded in order to expand composting operations. Under the management of Arie Baars all this gave rise to an exemplary company operation, as evidenced by the many quality certificates decorating the reception area of the headquarters in Lijnden in North Holland. In 2015 the company received the Keucompost certificate. “It’s OK to be proud of what you’ve achieved,” says Arie Baars. “Customers expect top quality from us, and they get it.”
Every year his team shreds, composts and transforms around 20,000 tonnes of green waste into high quality products. The company makes 60,000 tonnes of quality compost each year, screened with a Nemus drum screen. The Nemus is also used to mix ingredients in order to get the ideal homogeneity.
