Waste Recycling Center
Over recent years we have invested heavily to maximise our recycling rate and reduce landfill, through our processes we produce a refuse derived fuel product from our residual waste, we also ensure full traceability with all segregated recyclable materials such as Plasterboard, Metals, Inerts & Timber.
Our state of the art Biomass technology helps us achieve our goal of generating fuel from recycled waste products. After the waste has been sorted and treated it is then stored in our blue containers and taken to be used to convert into recycled fuel.
We recycle a broad assortment of metals. The more frequently recycled metals are scrap steel, iron (ISS), lead, aluminum, copper, stainless steel and brass.
