Solid waste and municipal solid waste (MSW) size reduction requires processing of many different materials, from filled drums to household waste. And, as the amount of solid waste increases and the cost of landfill management increases, it is becoming more critical that waste management become more effective, economic and efficient. Shredded and compacted waste is easier and cheaper to transport and extends the life of the landfill. In addition, separating out materials that can be reclaimed and recycled or that need to be incinerated or composted increases the landfill productivity while providing revenue to offset the costs of processing the solid waste.

Incinerated municipal solids and other waste streams results in a significant amount of ash residue, which often contains valuable metals. The amount of this remnant being created globally is rapidly increasing due to legislation which prohibits landfilling and creates new incentives for incineration. TOMRA Sorting sensor-based systems allow waste management businesses to capitalize on today’s challenges whilst simultaneously enabling them to look to the future with confidence.
