UK MRF still strong after 10 years proves the quality and durability of Bollegraaf installations
Cardiff Council’s Lamby Way Depot is a poster boy for ultra-efficient MRFs and co-mingled waste collection. Geraldine Faulkner visits the site, which is supplied by machinery giant Bollegraaf Recycling Solutions.
Figures published last month revealed Wales is recycling double the amount of waste it did a decade ago and is exceeding the current statutory recycling target of 58%. This success can be attributed to many factors; the Welsh government’s energetic leadership, the 22 Welsh local authorities signing up to the recycling ethos and, of course, householders in Wales engaging enthusiastically with the clean environment agenda.
It was also 10 years ago that Cardiff Council significantly extended its materials recycling facility at its Lamby Way Depot on the outskirts of the Welsh capital.
