For every skip of waste we collect over 80% of its content will
be recycled. Including Wood, brick, metal, inerts, cardboard and plastics. All
waste is segregated to maximise our recycling figures.
Skip Hire - Kirkby, Liverpool
explains what happens to your waste once received at our waste recycling centre
in Kirkby, Liverpool.
You have filled the skip and it now contains various
types of waste. Once collected it is transported back to our recycling centre
and onto the weighbridge. Every load received on site is weighed so we know how
much waste was in the skip.
The skip is then tipped out along with other
waste received and machines start segregating the larger pieces of material, already
it is being recycled and moved around the site into the relevant places.
The smaller more manageable pieces of waste are all loaded into the hopper where
it makes a journey to the trommel, down a long conveyor belt to the manned picking
belt. This is a manual picking line where we have pickers removing the various
types of waste by hand. Directly below the picking line are collection bins for
the various types of waste segregated by hand. This is the only way to maximise
our recycling targets.
The following gives an idea as to where your waste once segregated and
recycled ends up...
Once segregated this is bulk loaded to the wood processors for animal bedding
or garden mulch.
segregated this is bulk loaded to the scrap metal merchant for reprocessing.
this is bulk loaded to be crushed and re-used as hardcore for back filling, foundations
or bases for concrete.
Once segregated this is screened and re-screened and re-used as graded hardcore
segregated this is bulk loaded and delivered to the local recycling plant and
Once segregated this is bulk loaded for reprocessing and used as soil conditioner.
Once segregated this is
bulk loaded, reprocessed and used as new plastic items.
some of the waste received cannot be recycled due to contamination so it has to
go to landfill.
We are constantly aiming to reduce our figures
to landfill and the long drawn out process above ensures our figures are low.
