Waste recycling solutions for municipal solid waste industry - Waste and Recycling - Municipal Waste
Municipal Solid Waste (also known as “household waste") is a waste stream that consists of everyday consumable items that are discarded. This general residual waste is normally put into a black bag or bin and contains a mixture of wet and dry recyclables, organic, inorganic and biodegradable materials. This includes food waste, containers, cans, cartons, product packaging, newspapers and card.
Kiverco specialise in the Mechanical Treatment of waste as part of an MBT plant (Mechanical Biological Treatment). We divert Municipal Household Waste from landfill, recovering as many recyclable materials as possible before drying and shredding the remaining light materials to make a Refuse Derived Fuel (RDF). Organic materials are generally sent for conversion to heat and electricity or to create a compost like output.
