Treatment Of Waste – Landfill Regulations and Recycling Percentages
AB Waste Disposal has a transfer station which includes two warehouses, waste hopper, conveyor belts, soil screener, recycling picking station, magnets and automatic air knife on a 3 acre site. ALL our customers skips are tipped and sorted by hand and machinery on our site. We at AB Waste are dedicated to recovering materials for recycling and always looking to reduce the waste going to landfill.
All the waste which enters our transfer station is recorded and monitored. This includes every skip that is tipped and every container which goes out.
Our system is environment agency approved, and allows us to see were improvements can be made with our outgoing materials. AB Waste percentages for our materials recycled are estimated, through average weights, monitoring and recordings.
