The Landfill Directive was introduced by the EU in 1999 and sets the UK goals on reducing the amount of waste going into landfill.
Based on figures from 1995, waste going to landfills should be reduced by 35% by 2020, after previous reductions of 75% and 50% since its implementation. Here at Brown Recycling, we want to help to reach those targets, not only to create a greener industry but to create sustainability for the future.
Waste transfer station
Landfill diversion sees waste which would normally be dumped into landfill recycled and recovered. We take your waste materials to our waste transfer station where it will be processed initially in our MRF (Materials Recycling Facility) where large recyclates are segregated out, and then finally processed in our RDF (Refuse Derived Fuel) facility where the remaining residual waste is transformed into a fuel material for use in Energy-from-Waste Facilities in the UK; all of which brings us close to our aim of “zero to landfill”.
Through greater use of technology and more responsibility taken for waste, we have reduced the waste we send to landfill by almost 100%. As a family-run business with over 80 years of experience in the industry we strive to give our customers a comprehensive waste disposal service for any type of waste, whilst continually investing in environmentally friendly solutions for waste disposal.
