Fresh Start service includes their twin bodied vehicles to transport pre-segregated recycling and waste items to their local Manchester site for further sorting to maximise recycling levels.
Due to the high levels of glass waste being produced, which can be 100% recycled, Fresh Start recommended a glass crusher with smaller glass bins across the site. When glass is emptied into the crusher, the glass volume is reduced as the glass is crushed into tiny segments, ready for recycling.
This innovative piece of equipment not only reduces the number of bins required on site, but also the space needed to store the glass, so less frequent collections are required reducing cost as well as reducing the carbon impact of the glass recycling programme at DieCast Manchester.
Cardboard is also separately stored in bins, collected and then baled ready for recycling into new cardboard items.
All non-recyclable materials collected are further sorted at the Fresh Start Waste state-of-the-art recycling centre to further remove any other recyclable materials such as metal and any further cardboard, and the residual non-recyclable waste avoids landfill as it is converted into energy at a Refuse Derived Fuel facility right here in the North West to minimise travel and carbon impact and maximise local economy growth.
