Recycling Process

Treatment Of Waste – Landfill Regulations and Recycling Percentages

Ab Waste Disposal Ltd has two Transfer station, one situated in Mansfield Woodhouse covering 3 acres open since 1995. The second is in Mansfield open in 2016.

On each site we have high tech up to date equipment for sorting and maximising our waste recycling percentages this includes waste hopper, conveyor belt, soil screener, recycling picking station, magnets and automatic air knife.

All the waste that enters the transfer stations, is processed by hand and machinery. We at AB Waste Disposal are dedicated to recovering materials for recycling and diverting as much as 98 percent away from landfill.

Recycling Waste Management Stages

Stage 1

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.

Stage 2

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.

Stage 3

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.

Stage 4

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.
