Sustainable Waste Disposal
Open in 2017, the Appleton Materials Recylcing Facility (MRF) combines state-of-the-art construction and demolition recycling and a waste transfer station (WTS) for any material that can’t be recovered. The result is a single destination and environmental resource for the commercial and industrial construction industry.
The Appleton Construction and Demolition Material Recycling Facility supports recycling and recovery efforts for all manner of construction materials including, source separation of cardboard and plastic, reclaiming construction materials like aggregates, rock and concrete, which can be crushed and reused, recycling of metals and wood, and the conversion of mixed materials into biomass or fuel sources.
The MRF can process more than 200 tonnes of construction debris and remnant material per day, up to 1400 tonnes each week. The goal is to recover or recycle a minimum of 80% of the construction materials delivered for processing. All customers benefit from the ease of placing all their construction waste in one container and the confidence that the Centre will sort and reclaim materials, diverting up to 60,000 tonnes a year of waste from landfills.
