Cleaning up Suffolk MRF

Masons materials recycling facility (MRF) will be transformed from a dirty to a clean facility as part of Suffolks bid to increase recycling levels and revenue. It will also allow the processing of kerbside-collected waste.

Grosvenor Waste Management has been awarded a contract to refit the MRF, near Ipswich, with technology to allow it to sort 40,000 tonnes of dry recyclables per year.

Turning it into a clean facility means, among other things, Masons will be able to supply high-value grade paper to any mill in the UK, said Grosvenor recycling development director Mary Corin.

New technology includes an optical sorter to remove died papers, such as Yellow Pages, and cardboard to ensure a better quality raw material for mills.

Grosvenor was awarded the contract by Viridor Waste Management, the company responsible for Suffolks recycling concerns for the next 10 years. Viridor external affairs manager Dan Cooke said: The Masons MRF had been operating at a reduced level, taking in only industrial and business waste. However, the new technology being introduced by Grosvenor will allow the MRF to process waste from kerbside collections.
