Here is an overview of how we process your waste:
Once processed into single waste items within our processing plant, the waste passes through one of the following processes:
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 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.
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 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.
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.
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.
