SORTING YOUR WASTE

In our materials recycling facility, we take your waste and sort this into recyclable materials:

 

1. Collection

Materials collected from households, recycling centres and businesses are transported to our materials recycling facilities and loaded onto a conveyor. Materials that cannot be recycled and items that would harm the process or equipment are removed by hand on the conveyor.

 

2. Separation

The stream of materials then passes through a trommel and ballistic separator to separate the different recyclables. Paper is screened by hand and then baled, ready to be sent to a paper recycling mill.

 

3. Glass

Glass is passed under a magnet to remove any ferrous metals, screened to remove waste and then sent through an air classifier to remove any light paper. The glass is collected for onward transportation to a glass recycling plant.

 

4. Metals

Metals are removed using a magnet for ferrous metals (like steel cans) and an eddy current separator for non-ferrous metals (like aluminium cans). These are baled, ready for recycling.

 

5. Plastics

An optical sorting unit separates out different types of plastics, and plastic bottles then pass along a manual inspection line as a final quality check. The plastics are then baled for transportation to a specialist recycling facility.
