C&D material and green wood waste is delivered by truck and weighed, where a tipping fee is charged. Haulers then drop loads at designated sites for general waste and clean wood waste.
An excavator loads materials onto our state of the art sorting line conveyor where it is manually pre-sorted, then mechanically screened to differing sizes and material types. Pickers working on the sorting line hand pick materials from the moving conveyor, such as plastics, asphalt and drywall and some unusable products.
Materials used for producing process engineered fuels (PEF) are cleaned of metals (e.g. nails and bolts) by a magnetic separator and ground to a 4" minus chip. Cleaned product are then blended and stored in a dry covered storage shed ready for sale, loading and trucking. MRI uses a blended PEF formula to suit client needs, with quality control testing to ensure specifications are met.
Process engineered fuels are used by local cement plants and pulp mills as a cost effective alternative to fossil fuels when all costs are factored in. PEF fuel is exempt of the BC Carbon Tax, results in lower greenhouse gas emissions, and can provide carbon credits if used in a fuel switching project.
Recyclables such as high valued metals and glass are resorted and stored in open storage ready for sale and shipping.
Residual materials that cannot be recycled, such as insulation, hard plastics (PVC piping) and garbage, are trucked to a landfill. The finer grained residual material that cannot be recycled, such as dirt and fines, are trucked off and sold or traded as landfill cover material.
