BENEFITS





Clean MRF’s - are plants which process only dry

New UK Government Legislation to reduce household waste to landfill by recycling/

recyclables that are separated at source by the householder. This source separated waste is usually a mix of fibres - card, papers, newspapers, magazines and textiles - and commingled containers plastics and cans - and is put out for separate collection.



Mixed Bag MRF’s - receive both source-separated waste and mixed waste (MSW) simultaneously and divert as much of both as possible from landfill.

composting by 30% by 2010 means the GAME Waste Handling Systems are vital in helping companies and local authorities meet these targets.



Designed for the toughest environments to give years of reliable service.



Super strong structures.





Dirty MRF’s - divide residual municipal waste into a recyclable material stream and a non-recyclable residual waste stream disposed to landfill. More ad-

ments.



One-stop shop for all your needs.

vanced plant may be used to produce a third stream either a primarily biodegradable waste stream which can be sent for Anaerobic Digestion or In-vessel composting or a relatively high calorific value stream for conversion to Refuse Derived Fuel.



Fully-Automated MRF’s - automated systems offer higher throughputs and reduced operating and sorting costs and consistently higher recovery levels.



Super MRF’s - feature larger conveyors, large automated sorting screens, high-capacity balers and multi-bay shipping docks for outbound industrial feedstock harvested from curbside bins. Super MRF’s handle and sort high tonnages of waste and use high degrees of automation to reduce operating costs and give high recovery levels.
