Materials Recycling Facility (MRF)
Gaskells’ Materials Recycling Facility (MRF) is a state of the art, fully automated waste processing and recovery plant.
Developed at an initial cost of £3 million, we continue to invest in the latest technologies to recover and reuse as many recyclates and recoverable material as possible.
As you would expect of a professional recycling service, we provide excellent traceability, offering your business recycling performance reports that can form part of your company’s records and environmental profile.
Our recycling waste collections service is able to deal with segregated cardboard and paper, scrap metal, wood and glass, as well as food waste for anaerobic digestion (AD) processing, and sensitive materials such as asbestos and electrical waste (WEEE Waste).
And if you are uncertain of whether you generate the kind of waste materials suitable for recycling, we offer a free waste audit to maximise reduction, recycling and reuse of your waste.
This also helps you to understand the specific types and sizes of waste container you will need to keep different recyclable materials separated before collection or to compact scrap metal down for safer and easier handling.
Gaskells’ Materials Recycling Facility processes over 70,000 tonnes of waste per year, making it the largest commercial recycling facility in Liverpool.
We also work with other waste collection companies to process recyclable materials from their customers – ensuring that the local industry as a whole works together for the best possible impact on the environment and in reducing the region’s reliance on landfill sites.
