Waste sorting, splitting and balling

Waste sorting is the core procedure that follows after the separately collected packaging waste from municipal, commercial and industrial waste collection has reached our recycling facilities. The aim is to minimize the amount of waste from businesses, local authorities and households that ends up in landfill and transform it into valuable resources.

Waste splitting stands at the beginning of the efficient waste treatment process. The unsorted communal waste is separated into different fractions and then moved for further treatment and waste recovery. Using a selective treatment process, fractions high in calorific value are separated off from commercial and industrial waste, creating a marketable product.

Sorted material is then shredded, pressed into tight bales ready to be delivered for reuse or further treatment. Balling presses are used to compress the material and minimize the volume, thus optimizing storage and transportation efficiency. In addition, pressed bales can be wrapped to protect the material from environmental influences, like sun and water and to prevent odor emissions and leachate.
