What Happens to Waste

What Happens to Waste

GBN has continually invested in the most modern and innovative recycling and processing equipment at the forefront of the industry across our facilities. Our processes are devised around maximising the retrieval of valuable materials so they can be reused. This is particularly true of the aggregates from construction that we process through trommells and kinetic flow systems. We prioritise closing the loop with our recycling using local re-processors where we can. This is balanced against achieving the most economically preferential option for our clients.

Waste that cannot be effectively sorted through our mechanical and manual processes is baled and sent to generate refuse derived fuel. Click here for more details on our process of sorting residue material.

Below is a guideline to the major waste streams we manage and how they get processed with appropriate European Waste Catalogue code  (EWC).
