Vehicles entering and leaving are registered. Each vehicle’s load is checked and weighed. It is then sent to the relevant part of the plant for the type of waste it is carrying. (1).
Trucks carrying mixed waste are sent to the an area where sorting and separation are carried out both by machine (grab loaders) and manually (ground operators) (2).
This enables the waste to be separated as much as possible. Non-hazardous waste (paper, plastic, wood, glass, WEEE, soil, sludge, powder, raw rubber) is stored and treated inside a specific area of the plant (3). After a thorough selection, paper, cardboards, plastic and other waste items are reduced in size and pressed before storage.
Wood is crushed and possible traces of iron are removed in the specific plant (4), the obtained material is subsequently stored and then recycled. Recycled waste, which must be thoroughly sorted and clean, is then sent to specific plants or manufacturers (paper factories, glassworks…). New products are created from these materials which has been given new life. Once collected and sorted, recycled materials become valuable commodities in the worldwide market.
