Reduced Recycling Costs in Dartford

What Happens Once You Have Removed My Waste?

Here is an overview of how we process your waste:

  • Transported and Sectioned
    Waste is transported to our fully licenced waste transfer station. It is then weighed and tipped into several tipping sections, depending on the nature and weight of the waste.
  • Initial Waste Processing
    Once tipped, the waste is divided mechanically by excavators that are adapted with waste handling grapple accessories. More significant waste items – such as tree trunks, timber, metal, furniture, and foliage – get separated within moments of being shifted into the ground-level tipping areas.
  • Into the Plant
    The waste in the tipping sections is packed by an excavator into the mechanical processing and waste sorting plant.
  • Air, Hand, and Magnetic Separating
    The waste material then moves on conveyor belts within this waste sorting plant, which includes some of the most advanced systems of waste segregation, incorporating shredding, trommel drums, grid or mesh screening, magnetisation, and air separation together with manual hand classifying through conveyer-fed picking.
  • Now for the Recycling
    The materials are promptly prepared into ‘single waste streams’, for example, timber, block and concrete, metals, paper and card, plasterboard etc. They are then carried in volume for further recycling and processing. Concrete, tiles, ceramics, and brick rubble that have been grouped are crushed and graded to form recycled aggregates. Soils are sifted to generate a good subsoil or topsoil, and green waste is shredded to create compost.

Individual Waste Streams

Once processed into single waste items within our processing plant, the waste passes through one of the following processes:

  • Glass
    The glass is washed and ground into cullet, which can be used for making recycled aggregates like EcoSand, which is used as paving sand below block paving and concrete slabs. EcoSand contributes to the efficient and sustainable use of waste materials and can continuously be recycled.
  • Wood
    Wood is delivered to a recycling plant and classified into high-quality clean wood (Grade A) or a lower-class dirty mixed wood (Grade C). Grade A wood can be reformed for chipboard manufacture, while Grade C wood is reused to create low-value chipboard.
  • Soils
    Clean soils like clay and chalk are utilised in the remediation of extensive areas of land. One of the most traditional uses is in the development or reconstruction of golf courses.
  • Bricks and Concrete
    Bricks and concrete are broken down by crushing then converted into the new aggregate material. These commodities can then be used by construction firms or other industries that have a constant demand for quality building materials.
  • Metals
    Scrap metals are shredded before rubber, wood, and plastics are then extracted. The metal is then melted in a blast furnace that fires at very high temperatures and burns off the contaminants or anything lingering from the sorting stages. Liquid metal is drained into moulds for reuse.
  • Paper and Card
    Waste paper and cardboard have water added to them to produce a pulp which is sifted to extract any impurities and cleansed to exclude ink and glues. The fresh pulp is turned into a new commodity. Low-grade combined paper and cardboard is recycled into cardboard packaging, and newspapers and magazines are recycled into newsprint.
