Pinden Recycling, is one of the largest waste recycling operations in the South East of England, serving the areas of Kent, Essex and London.

Pinden suffered a large fire at their premises in August 2020, which caused major damage to most of the existing recycling facility. Following the success of the 3 previous installations Turmec carried out with Pinden, Turmec was enlisted with completing the rebuild of the facility. Turmec modified parts of the plant that were undamaged following the fire, so that operations could continue as much as possible during the rebuild. Turmec worked alongside Pinden’s operations team, so that the installation caused minimal disruption to the operations on site.


The rebuild consisted of a Nihot Double Drum Separator, a ballistic separator, Lindner Polaris RDF shredder and IFE double deck variomat screen.

Pinden have two semi-automated picking lines for separating waste.
