Crewe and Nantwich Borough Council required a waste recycle facility to handle recycling operations for the household curbside wheeled bin collection programmes.
To accommodate the different operations a 30m x 45m BVE type building with a leg height of 6.5m was constructed. The waste is divided internally into four sections; each area is accessed via a 4.5m x 4.5m electrically operated roller shutter door.
The four internal areas in the waste and recycling station are critical in allowing the material to be deposited in the appropriate lanes, with the adjacent door being used by the out-going bulk transport vehicle to stand in while being loaded under cover. The incoming/outgoing lanes are alternated each week in order to ensure no materials are left behind.
The Rubb waste and recycling facility is apart of the Curbside wheeled bin collection programme. This brings in co-mingled dry recyclables which are then sent to off-site materials recovery facilities, and separately collected newspapers and magazines which go direct to the paper mill.
