Recycling & Materials Recovery
Materials Recovery Facilities are becoming increasingly more important to the UK as they reduce the volumes of waste sent to landfill, diminishing the need to extract raw materials, and in turn reducing climate changing carbon emissions.
brownSkips.com operates three recycling centres across Hampshire and Oxfordshire (chiltonSkips.com) and we also operate a state-of-the-art A303 Materials Recovery Facility which has been designed to receive up to 75,000 tonnes of waste per annum.
Our Materials Recovery Facility is strategically located just off the A303 at Barton Stacey, near Andover, which serves skip hire in Southampton, Romsey, Winchester, Eastleigh, Winchester, Andover, Basingstoke, Fareham, Whitchurch, Newbury, Thatham, Stockbridge and the surrounding areas.
Through the latest technology, best practice and efficient processing, brownSkips.com achieves recovery rates of over 90%. Example materials recovered at this facility include; wood, plastics, textiles, metals, soils, bricks, concrete, cardboard, plasterboard and Waste Electronic & Electrical Equipment (WEEE).
We are continually investing in our facilities to ensure that we have the best technology and equipment to maximize materials recovered and your recycling rates. We pride ourselves on being able to find a source for your recovered materials and optimise the timing of sale to improve negotiation leverage and maximize commodity prices.
Our Materials Recovery Process
Step 1: The waste arrives on site at our A303 Enviropark.
Step 2: The waste is tipped into the loading area of our facility.
Step 3: The waste is then fed onto a a Kiverco KL 820 trommel with a 40mm screen to remove all fines.
Step 4: The remaining material then passes through a Kiverco sorting station for manual separation. Operatives send the recovered materials into the relevant dropdown bays.
Step 5: The recovered segregated materials are then either processed further or baled ready to be transported for re-use.
Step 6: The materials are then recycled into new products for re-use.
