  1. Material is fed into the bag opener hopper. The purpose of this is to split bags open and ensure recyclable material is made accessible for recovery. The bag opener also sets the speed at which the plant is supplied tonnage and allows control of throughput.
  2. The material travels along a steep inclined chain conveyor. The purpose of this is to control the feed of material and ensure that the material is homogenous and not inconsistent. Steady flow allows the machinery to access material more effectively.
  3. Material passes through a pre-sort cabin where certain items are removed due to their undesirable properties; too large to process, not recyclable, likely to cause blockages / downtime, likely to cause a hazards such as fire or chemical spills, likely to cause contamination of other materials.
  4. Material is then fed onto the OCC DRS screens. Large cardboard is extracted at this point.
  5. Material falls down through the OCC DRS screen and onto the Glassbreaker DRS screens. Glass shatters due to brittle nature and falls through the 50mm screen. Glass is extracted and all other material continues onwards.
  6. Material passes through the news sorter screener. News and pams are lifted up and over the screen deck and all other material either rolls back or falls through the deck to continue in the process.
  7. Material travels onto ballistic separator and is split into 2D (paper and films) and 3D (beverage cartons, bottles, cans – still also contains some paper) fractions.

3D – This fraction passes through an optical sorter. Papers are identified, segregated and fed into the Mixed Paper quality cabin.

  1. The remaining 3D material passes through an overband magnet to remove Steel and an Eddy Current for the Aluminium.
  2. Mixed plastic remaining goes through multiple optical sorters targeting – PET Natural, HDPE Natural and PP, remaining plastics/missed plastics run off the end line onto a sorting cabin.
  3. Remaining plastics run through a sorting cabin where non target material is manually targeted.

When hopper is full, material is fed to the baler.

  1. Bales are moved to the transfer station area for storage before loading onto vehicles.
