Resource Recovery

Materials recovery facility (MRF)

Each landfill site operates an MRF to extract recyclates from landfill waste.  Both of our facilities can separate:

  • wood
  • metal (ferrous and non-ferrous)
  • cardboard
  • paper
  • plastics
  • stone, bricks and concrete
  • sub-soil.

Green waste composting

You can use both our facilities to recycle green garden waste.

We offer competitive rates and the cost you pay will depend on how much waste you want us to recycle.

We use an open windrow system to compost materials to PAS 100 standards. 

We sell our finished product as a soil enhancer, with our principal grade being 0-20mm.

Processing food and garden waste

We use co-mingled garden and food waste to produce electricity that we export to the national grid.

We can also take catering waste and category 3 animal by-products (former foodstuffs). If you’re sending these types of waste to us, please make sure there’s no packaging.

The dry anaerobic digestion plant at our Lochhead facility is among the first of its kind within the UK. We take up to 40,000 tonnes material each year and convert the methane from the waste into electricity.
