Material recycling facility (MRF)

    iaw-hero-header

Interserve’s Material recycling facility (MRF) near Walsall plays a key role in assisting the region’s councils, commercial, construction and demolition sectors in meeting their landfill reduction targets.

Material recycling facility

The plant is able to process approximately 250,000 tonnes of waste material per year, returning a range of recycled products to the market. In addition, enhanced mechanisation over the three acre site enables the plant to recycle a highly impressive 95 per cent of all the material it processes, which is especially good news for the environmental credentials of the area.

The facility is having an increasing impact with throughput steadily rising - already up from 18,500 tonnes per annum to 28,000 tonnes. Currently 95 per cent of all materials received are being recycled, and we are looking to improve on this level as the processes is further refined.

With every UK construction project valued at over £300,000 now being required to include a waste management contract as part of its scope of works, and with waste management accounting for a high proportion of councils’ annual expenditure, Interserve's efficient and professional service is becoming increasingly important.

Interserve offers a comprehensive waste management service, encompassing all aspects of waste collection and disposal across the UK. Segregation, waste minimisation and support and advice on environmental legislation are all part of our offering. Personnel are WAMITAB trained and accredited (Waste Management Industry Training and Advisory Board).
