Kiverco Recycling Systems, based in Dungannon, Ireland, has recently designed, manufactured and installed a new commercial and industrial (C&I) recycling system for Weir Waste Service, which is based in Birmingham, U.K.
The updated materials recycling facility (MRF) located in Oldbury, West Midlands, is one of two MRFs operated by Weir in West Midlands.

The Oldbury facility recovers recyclables from C&I waste, diverting thousands of tonnes of waste from landfill each year. The updated plant feeds into the company’s existing Trinity Street refuse-derived fuel (RDF) processing facility, bringing the capacity to more than 25 tonnes of waste processed per hour, making it one of the largest commercial and industrial MRFs in the U.K., Kiverco says, and helping the West Midlands Area achieve waste management targets set by the European Union.
Kiverco says the plant will delivered by the waste and construction machinery supplier Blue Group. Kiverco adds that the system was delivered on schedule and within budget.

According to Weir Waste, the facility contains equipment from Doppstadt, Kiverco and Titech, including a Titech autosort 4 system.

“The Trinity Street MRF is the first of its kind for Kiverco and demonstrates our ability to deliver a project on this scale and one which has exceeded our client’s expectations,” says John Lines, sales director for Kiverco. “Our expertise in design and manufacture, our ability to offer materials testing and to effectively partner with leading technology partners such as Titech and Hartner, have all been demonstrated through this contract.”

Weir Waste Services says it is one of the largest independent waste companies operating in the West Midlands. The company says its Oldbury facility is the largest C&I processing facility in the U.K.

Weir’s Managing Director Daniel Weir says, “We are incredibly excited that Trinity Street MRF will be bringing new and innovative recycling machinery from U.K. companies such as Kiverco to help us and our customers in our commitments to the environment and sustainability.”

The project was in part funded by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) and managed by the U.K.’s Waste and Resources Action Plan (WRAP).
