Hills develops new Materials Recover Facility (MRF) for Wiltshire

Work is underway on the new materials recovery facility in Wiltshire, designed by Turmec.

Hills Waste Solutions has commissioned Turmec to supply and install the MRF plant, which will have the capacity to process 20 tonnes per hour of mixed dry recyclables (MDR).

The new MRF plant, located at Sands Farm in Calne, will treat kerbside collected commingled recyclable materials collected by Hills from around 220,000 households across Wiltshire under a contract with Wiltshire Council, one of the largest unitary authorities in the country.

The new Turmec MRF equipment will include various screens with optical and magnet elements to maximise the recovery of paper, cardboard, plastic bottles (PET and HDPE), plastic pots, tubs and trays, cans (steel and aluminium) and food and drink cartons.

Henry Newbery, recycling manager for Hills said: “Turmec was awarded the contract to provide the MRF after a competitive tender process which saw Hills evaluating MRF designs from a number of providers. Turmec’s plant design and advanced sorting equipment will ensure that we achieve a high-quality separation of recycled materials.”
