All of the waste we collect is processed through our state of the art Material Recovery Facility (MRF). The process is designed to flow in a way that enables waste to be segregated into separate waste streams with accuracy, and we aim to prevent anything going to landfill.
The waste is sorted and sent either for re-use or further processing. Waste materials which cannot be recycled (with the exception of hazardous or contaminated waste) are sent for reprocessing into refuse derived fuel (RDF), which will go on to be used by energy plants.
Our policy is for recovery and reuse first and foremost, focusing on finding recycling solutions for all processed waste. Our recycle targets are from 80% and zero landfill options are available.
We are also equipped to recycle dry waste.
Wood waste is segregated on site into two categories- high grade and low grade. The wood is chipped and re-used for many different purposes, including biomass.
Green waste is composted for re-use in gardens, landscaping, horticulture, and agriculture.
Paper and Cardboard
Paper and cardboard is baled on site for re-use in paper mills in the UK and export to China.
Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE)
Recycling food waste diverts a significant amount of waste from landfill and helps to reduce the contamination of other recyclable materials. Once collected, food waste will either be composted or used in an anaerobic digester to create renewable energy.
Our secure shredding, recycling and disposal of confidential paper waste will give you peace of mind, and means that your legal obligations are covered. We also offer a certificate of destruction with destroyed waste.
Metals are separated on site into different types by using electro-magnets and manual separation. Metals are then sent on to be melted down and re-used for manufacturing purposes.
Plastics are segregated into different variants before being baled and sent to plastic plants in the UK and export to China.
Waste Cooking Oil
Inert materials are screened on site for re-use. This process removes two fraction of stone size, leaving quality soil for use in gardens, landscaping, horticulture and agriculture.
Glass can be recycled over and over again, and once onsite it will be crushed down and re-processed.
