Material recovery facility


MaterialRecoveryFacilityWe operate a Material Recovery Facility (MRF) at the Recycling Centre at Western Road, Kilmarnock.

The MRF system is fitted with equipment capable of processing up to 8000 tonnes of co-mingled waste each year.  It is used to separate steel and aluminium cans, and is also used to bulk our collected paper and cardboard.  MRF staff help the process by removing any contaminants from the collected materials. This process ensures that a clean, separated product is available to the recycling industry. 

All sorted materials is either baled or sent loose to Council contracted re-processors.
