How is your recycling sorted?

The mixed recycling we collect in the green lidded recycling bins across East Northants is taken to Pure’s Material Recovery Facility (MRF) in Warwickshire. At the MRF it is sorted by hi-tech machinery including infra-red recognition, rotating screens, eddy current separator, electro magnetic sorting with some limited hand picking. The video shows the sorting process and some of the machinery used throughout.
