Municipal solid waste recycling

Municipal solid waste recycling

From waste to value

Municipal solid waste contains various valuable materials for recycling. Different components can can sorted, sold or made use of – for example in energy production.

Improved efficiency

Smaller size waste is faster and more accurate to screen and sort.

Increased throughput

Efficient bag opening acceletates waste processing and improves capacity.

Customer care

Service and support available at all times every day of the year.

Transforming municipal solid waste into raw material

Different components like metals, plastics, glass, packaging fiber, organic materials, and paper are mixed in waste and require processing and sorting before they can be fully utilized.

The quicker and more efficient the recycling process is, the more valuable municipal solid waste turns out to be as a raw material.

To process municipal waste profitably, the waste treatment equipment must handle many materials of different shapes and sizes.

Rocks, stones, plastic bags, and other resistant components should not jam the production, and despite variety in the material, the end product must be homogenous and optimally sized for further processing.

Robust equipment for waste recycling

Metso’s pre-shredders and fine shredders are engineered to process any kind of municipal solid waste.

Reliable equipment turns municipal solid waste into the right grain size to be first screened and sorted faster and more accurately, and later utilized in other applications like in energy production as refuse-derived fuel (RDF) or solid recovered fuel (SRF).

Durable pre-shredders and fine shredders have a simple structure to reduce the need for and duration of maintenance. They work well alone or as part of a more advanced recycling process.
