The National Exhibition Centre, Birmingham, has doubled the amount of waste that it sends to be recycled and not to landfill in just two years with the assistance of Landfill Alternatives.
The increase from 19% in 2008 to over 40% in 2010, has been largely due to the introduction of the NEC’s Waste Pre-Treatment Centre, which allows waste to be separated and treated prior to being collected by local suppliers to the recycling industry.
The LFA 450 H.FE (Horizontal.Full Eject), processes cardboard, plastic, metal, wood, paper, and cans in a special warehouse unit previously used for catering.
The material is brought from the halls using wheelie bins which are pulled in a line by an electric vehicle. Two LFA BL 1100Ltr (Bin Lift) weigh their contents and then invert the bins over a wall, where the material is then sorted manually. The segregated material is then collected by a bob-cat with a bucket and then tipped into the hopper of the baler.
