Municipal Solid Waste

What is Municipal Solid Waste?

Commonly known as rubbish in Britain, is a waste type consisting of everyday items such as product packaging, grass clippings, furniture, clothing, bottles, food scraps, and newspapers.

How is Municipal Solid Waste Disposed?

Municipal Solid Waste can be prevented from going to landfill with new technology and turning this waste intro Refuse Derived Fuel which is a product that is burnt in incinerators to produce electricity and heat.

First of all the household waste is shredded down to 400mm or smaller if required, we then screened to remove all of the organic material. This is then processed over magnets to remove any metals. It is then baled and wrapped and as with Solid Recovered Fuel it can either be exported by the boat load or in single articulated lorry loads.
