Casepak moves closer to Leicester MRF opening

Casepak has reached a landmark in its construction of a £21m materials recycling facility in Leicester.

The firm has received and installed its final equipment from the US, including the baler, compactors and weighbridge systems for the plant.

The MRF is due to become fully operational in September, once the mechanical and electrical installation is completed.

It will sort mixed collections of paper, card, plastic, metal and glass and aims to recover more than 95% of material processed.

Casepak director Kevin Thomas said: “We are on track to complete the build as scheduled, and with the recent installation of all optical sorting units, baler and weighbridge systems, the MRF is fast taking shape.

“Our next milestone will be getting all electrical and mechanical installations complete and then the exciting part of the commissioning phase can begin and we can start to see the MRF in action.”
