We all know the impact landfill sites have on our environment and those that live within it. As such it has been vitally important to us to continually strive for a circular economy through sustainable solutions. To accomplish this, we are extremely proud to own and operate one of the most sophisticated Materials Recycling Facilities (MRF) in the South East.
Our MRF facility is essentially a giant sorting facility that allows us to segregate different waste streams to recycle as much waste as possible. The facility allows us to process a large variety of both ‘dry’ and ‘wet’ waste streams using the latest innovative technology.
Once sorted the waste items are saved for recovery or reprocessed in the most time and cost-efficient way possible allowing our clients to achieve the highest rates in the industry for the recycling of mixed waste.
How does our materials recycling facility work?
- Screens & Trommels to remove large recyclable items
- Magnetic separation to identify ferrous metals
- Optical separation for plastics
- Air classification can help to separate light and heavy materials (paper for example)
