Our Materials Recovery Facility (MRF) allows us to recover any materials from household refuse that have the potential to be recycled. These include cardboard, paper, plastics and metals. We use a number of methods to separate these materials, including manual and automated systems. All recovered materials are segregated by type and then reprocessed. This reduces the environmental impact of the subsequent manufacturing process and can also create a valuable source of income from your waste.
In our MRF, the materials are fed onto conveyors and subjected to mechanical and magnetic sorting procedures, as well as human operators. Each type of material is segregated for reprocessing, including the non-recyclable waste which is then processed for disposal.
