Processes

Step 1
Collection

As a first step, we would normally visit a client to carry out a site survey or appraisal. We will assess the waste requiring collection and recycling, and type of handling available on site. Samples of material could be taken and analysed on our lab NIR Spectrometer in order to determine the type and value of the material.

We will then put together a solution, which may include the installation of balers on site, a supply of containment systems or recommendations as to how to sort and store the waste in readiness for collection.

Competitive rebates are then negotiated for certain recyclable waste materials.
Our logistics team is happy to handle part loads as well as mixed loads. Working with our network of hauliers, we will co-ordinate your collection with those from other clients to reduce costs and environmental impact.

All you need to do is to call us to arrange a suitable collection date, or alternatively, we can accept deliveries direct from your business.

   
Step 2
Processing

We carry out a wide range of processes at our factory in Frome in readiness for the transportation of the recyclables. These include granulating, micronising, compounding and baling.

We can also carry out these processes on a contract basis – please contact us for details.

   
Step 3
Recycling

The processed recyclables are then sold and distributed globally for secondary manufacturing processes where they are converted into the following;

  • Plant trays/pots
  • Food packaging film
  • Toys
  • CD's & DVD's
  • Polyester fibres for clothing
  • Tree guards
  • Cardboard
  • Pipes
  • Wheelie bins
  • Buckets
