All the waste we receive is tipped at our fully licenced waste transfer station on the outskirts of Norwich. If required your waste will be weighed on our fully calibrated weighbridge upon return to our waste transfer station.
The waste will then be tipped into 1 of 4 initial pre sorting bays where one of our experienced excavator operators will remove any of the bulky items including sofa’s, mattresses, doors, large items of metal and wood.
The waste will be loaded into a hopper where it will travel up a conveyor and over a flip flow screen which removes any sub 50mm material. The next stage involves segregating the waste into different categories.
Once all of the recyclable material has been removed the remainder of waste which is un-recyclable is then shredded to – 100mm and awaits collection for further processing.
We can recycle the following waste types:
- 1 tonne bags (Jewson bags/hippo bags/builders bags)
- Plastic barriers
- Plastic car bumpers
