Materials Recovery Facility (MRF)

Materials Recovery Facility (MRF)

A Material Recovery Facility enables the recyclable materials from household waste to be sorted into different types (e.g. plastics, cardboard, paper, metals) using automated and manual picking methods.  Once the materials have been separated they can be sold on to re-processors and manufacturers.MRF

Using the latest technology Mechanical Solutions ensures that household waste is effectively and efficiently separated into cardboard, newspapers and magazines, non-ferrous and ferrous metals and plastics. The separated materials are then compacted for transporting to re-processors for recycling diverting around 85,000 tonnes every year away from landfill.

A typical MRF will include a combination of the below equipment;

  • Feed Hopper
  • Conveying Equipment
  • Bag Breaker
  • Manual Picking Station
  • Glass Breaker
  • OCC Screen
  • News Screen
  • Plastic film extraction
  • Optical Sorting
  • Magnets
  • Eddy Current Separators
  • Balers
  • Access Platforms & Stairways

Any of the above equipment can be provided as part of a complete plant or as as individual item.
