Our Recycling Facility

At Fresh Start we believe the concept of “zero to landfill” is an absolute minimum. In 2020, Fresh Start Waste Services completed a £750k investment in our Materials Recovery Facility to maximise the recovery of recyclable materials.

How We Recover Your Waste

Our commitment to truly moving customers up the waste hierarchy extends from our waste reduction programmes, to ensuring as much waste which cannot be reused as possible is recycled, as opposed to being over reliant upon waste to energy facilities which still have the potential to harm our environment.

Our new facility is testament to this goal, and allows us to remove metal, cardboard, plastic and paper from the conveyor belt system, with some waste manually picked on our picking line and metal for example being captured by an overband magnet. All waste passes through the facility twice to ensure maximum recycling levels are achieved. This results in a reduction of residual waste which is then sent trough a Refuse Derived Fuel (RDF) process.

Please see the below video which gives you look inside the operational side of maximising recycling of waste collected at Fresh Start Waste Services.
