Municipal Solid Waste (MSW)

Unlock your Waste to Energy potential

MSW – like C&I waste – has dominated the media headlines over the past decade, for the growing role it plays in the UK’s resource and renewable energy agenda. Once considered merely ‘dirty black bag waste’ destined for landfill, household ‘rubbish’ can now be rigorously processed to uphold the reuse, recycle and recovery principles of the waste hierarchy.

  • Why shred MSW?

    Whilst the reduction of waste at source is undoubtedly the priority – and the public’s environmental conscience is rising – MSW levels in the UK remain difficult to manage. Local authorities, MRFs and alternative fuel producers have a duty to maximise reuse, recycling and energy recovery rates from this complex waste stream.

  • Why shred MSW?

    Municipal Solid Waste – in its many forms – can be shredded and liberated to aid the optimum performance of downstream sorting equipment, for maximum waste hierarchy compliance.

  • Why shred MSW?

    Shredding doesn’t just achieve waste volume reduction. There is an ever-growing appetite within the UK and overseas to transform MSW into a Refuse Derived Fuel (RDF) – an increasingly popular fossil fuel substitute.

  • Why shred MSW?

    The production of high-quality RDF supports the UK’s resource agenda, aids compliance with waste regulations and ever-stringent targets, and represents an income generation opportunity for industry operators.
