From our 16 materials recycling facilities (MRFs) plants across the UK we take in comingled materials from local authorities and/or Commercial & Industrial customers and sort the waste into high-quality streams of recyclable materials.
We have a range of materials recycling facilities across the UK from; Plymouth – Priorswood - Ford – Crayford – Masons - Milton Keynes – Corby – Bargeddie, with a couple of process specific sites at Warth Road and Atherton.
A combination of advanced mechanical sorting techniques and manual quality control is used to separate the materials so that they can be reprocessed into new products.
Giving new life to commingled recyclable
The technologies we use at our ‘next generation’ MRFs at Bargeddie near Glasgow, Longley Lane in Manchester, Crayford in Kent and Ford, West Sussex are now so sophisticated that we are able to recycle over 95% of the materials that go through the plants.
All of our MRFs operate under the highest quality, environmental and health and safety standards. We supported the industry-leading Recycling Registration Standard, ensuring quality products from MRFs, upon which the MRF Code of Practice is based.
