Municipal Solid Waste

Household Trash

Municipal Solid Waste (MSW) streams consist of everyday household trash such as food waste, plastics, film, clothing, cans and product packaging. With landfill diversion targets continuing to rise, Materials Recovery Facilities (MRFs) are under increasing pressure to extract and recover recyclable and non-recyclable materials from this diverse waste stream.

Pre-shredding allows for a subsequent thorough screening separation process to deliver uniformly sized commodities including sellable hard-core, inert fines, ferrous metals and product suitable for use in Refuse Derived Fuel (RDF).

GreenRock Equipment offer complete recycling solutions incorporating slow-speed grinders, trommel screens, picking stations, material classifiers, flip flow screens as well as a complete fines recovery plant designed to extract the maximum value from Municipal Solid Waste (MSW).
