Recycling Centre and Waste Transfer Station
At our waste transfer station you can tip direct to the facility (subject to viewing your Waste Transfer Licence). Fees vary on the materials brought to us but we give competitive rates to all commercial customers. On some of the recyclable materials we will even pay a rebate, if sorted cardboard, paper and metals of all kinds are delivered. We can also arrange a pickup service for recyclable materials.
Eco Waste & Recycling Ltd issue full monthly reports to each client showing the amount of materials removed from each site, and a breakdown of the recycled products brought in from the client each month. Not only will this help our clients understand how much waste they are removing from their various sites, but also help show sustainability to their existing, and more importantly new customers.
This service will also benefit main contractors in undertaking their monthly site waste management plan reports. We supply all the information required so your surveyors and contract managers spend the minimal amount of time filling out documents. We can supply a complete trace of all site waste, and show full documentation in our reports. We can guarantee that we will be 100% more effective than your current supplier.
You can be confident that all your recyclable waste that is collected from your skip is reprocessed resourcefully and efficiently. Our Waste Transfer Station is vital to this process as it is achieved through a combination of segregation and reduction, and is then transferred for reprocessing and eventually reuse.
Materials recycled at our Recycling Centre
This is separated into two types – ‘A’ Grade (pallets, wooden crates and white, untreated wood) and ‘C’ grade (plywood, chipboard, MDF etc.) It is reduced wherever possible and then chipped at a wood processing facility. It is then transferred for various uses, such as the production of MDF, Sterling Board and animal bedding.
Any concrete, brick and rubble is segregated and transferred for crushing. It can then be reused for a multitude of purposes.
Our destination facility uses the aggregates for land treatment which results in a benefit to agriculture or ecological improvement.
Any metals received at our site are segregated by the MRF.
The ferrous and non-ferrous metals are transferred to be shredded, and are then exported nationally and internationally for reuse.
Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE):
Following segregation, these items are collected and transferred to a WEEE processing plant, where magnets remove the ferrous metals and the non-ferrous metals are removed by using electronic currents. The remaining plastic is sorted into different grades and transferred for reuse.
This valuable raw material is separated and baled on site. We then transfer the bales to a paper processor to be stripped of its impurities - done by mixing it with water to turn it into a pulp. It is then screened and de-inked so it is ready for reuse.
Following segregation the glass is crushed and the contaminants removed. We then transfer it to a glass processing facility where it is melted in a furnace and moulded into new bottles or jars.
This is separated and baled on site. It is then transferred to be mixed with water and made into a pulp. A combination of water and wood shavings is then added to increase the strength of the end result. This is then transferred nationally for reuse.
This is mechanically screened into a uniformed size and any debris or oversized stones are separated. It is then transferred to a recycling centre where it is processed with emulsified Asphalt, thus producing a stabilised, recycled product.
There are two main types of plastic: type 1 (PET) and type 2 (HDPE). These are baled separately on site and then transferred to a processing plant. Here it is cleaned initially with water and then a corrosive substance to remove any glue or chemicals. It is then dried and 'downcycled' into plastic pellets - the raw material for making recycled, plastic products.
Natural composting process is accelerated through initial processing on site including shredding & screening. It is then transferred to a specialist facility whereby subject to a combination of composting techniques, invessels and windows, to catalyse the process further. The end product is a high-quality mulch which returns nutrients back into the earth.
