Materials Recycling Facilities (MRFs) process large volumes of municipal, commercial and industrial dry mixed materials to produce a range of high quality recyclable outputs.

A combination of advanced mechanical sorting techniques and manual quality control is used to separate the materials so that they can be reprocessed into new products.

Giving new life to commingled recyclable

The technologies we use at our ‘next generation’ MRFs at Bargeddie near Glasgow, Longley Lane in Manchester, Crayford in Kent and Ford, West Sussex are now so sophisticated that we are able to recycle over 95% of the materials that go through the plants.

All of our MRFs operate under the highest quality, environmental and health and safety standards. We supported the industry-leading Recycling Registration Standard, ensuring quality products from MRFs, upon which the MRF Code of Practice is based.
