Your responsible and sustainable skip hire company.
We are greatly aware of our responsibility to reduce our ‘carbon footprint’ and help with the countries recycling future. The investment we have made provides extra confidence to our customers that the waste is getting the best treatment whether it is at pre sorting stage or at the final process.
At present we recycle and recover the largest variety of waste within the area and with the new improved transfer/recycling station we can confidently say that we are the biggest and the best!
Once the skip is collected, the waste is brought back to our transfer station were the skip is tipped up for an initial inspection. The recycling staff will then retrieve any large recyclable materials before the rest of the waste is pushed into our sorting bays. This is the pre-sorting stage. Once this is done the grab loader will feed the hopper with the remaining waste.
The waste will travel up the incline belt (which is covered to protect the environment from dust and litter) and into the trommel screener. The inert soils and fine hardcore will fall out at this stage of the process into the holding bay below. These materials will be sent for further treatment for hardcore.
The waste travels along the conveyor belt were our trained recycling operatives pick the remaining recyclables off the belt. They place the materials down a chute to the designated bin underneath. The material left travels under a magnetic belt which retrieves any ferrous materials.
Once the waste has travelled through all the systems it falls into a bay at the end were an air knife blows back any remaining rubbish to produce clean hardcore which is then sent for recycling.
