We aim to divert waste from landfill and find alternative solutions to gain value from general waste
General waste, also known as residual waste, is material from businesses and households that cannot be recycled and, therefore, is frequently disposed of at landfill. However, with advances in technology, it is possible to recover value from general waste, usually in the form of energy.
General waste includes materials such as non-recyclable plastics, polythene, packaging and scraps.
How We Process General Waste
Using trusted technology partners who share our goal of reducing waste to landfill, SL Recycling offer innovative processes.
Our environmentally considered and economically valued processes for general waste include:
- Mechanical Heat Treatment (MHT)
- Mechanical Biological Treatment (MBT)
- Energy From Waste (EFW)
- Refuse Derived Fuel (RDF)
We choose our technology partners with great care, ensuring they have the appropriate licences and are registered with the necessary industry bodies. We visit sites, ensure fit for purpose with technologies, run initial batches and ascertain processes.
Through considered, researched, and compliant processing, SL Recycling actively divert general waste from landfill.
