The minute any waste comes into our transfer stations it is SORTED into types enabling efficient recycling.
Reducing the requirement for landfill, general waste is incinerated to create electricity – Waste to Energy. Waste is burnt at 950o C; the heat generated is used to turn water into steam which turns a high pressure turbine to power and electric generator.
