    Inside our Materials Recovery Facility
  • Materials Recovery Facility - Rendering
    Our modern Materials Recovery Facility (MRF) was built in 2012 using start-of-art technology to ensure the maximum recovery of recyclables.
  • Materials Recovery Facility
    Non-recyclable materials are manually removed to prevent damage to equipment and maximise the value of recyclables recovered.
  • Disc Screen
    Disc screens with different sized openings automatically allow different types of recyclables to fall through onto a series of conveyors which move the material around the plant for further sorting.
  • Materials Recovery Facility - Newspaper
    Screens pull cardboard, newspaper and mixed paper onto three separate sorting lines for manual quality control.
  • Eddy Current
    A magnetic field is used to create an “eddy current” in aluminium cans in order to extract them.
  • Materials Recovery Facility - Plastics
    MRF machinery recovers mixed plastics which are manually sorted at the final stage of the process.

    Cardboard is baled and sent for reprocessing into new products.
