Licenced Waste Transfer Station


Here at Norman Wenn Skip Hire NONE of our waste that comes into our Transfer Station goes to landfill! - we are fully registered by the Environment Agency – our registration number is EA/ML 71202.


When a skip is collected it is transported back to our Waste Transfer Station/Recycling Centre, every load received on site is weighed so we know how much waste is in the skip.


The skip is then tipped out, our machines separate the larger pieces of material, moving it around the site into the relevant containers.


The smaller more manageable pieces of waste are loaded into a hopper where it is taken to the trommel, then along a conveyor belt onto the manned picking belt.  This is a manual picking line, where the various types of waste are sorted out by hand.  Below the picking line are collection bins for the various types of waste, this is the best way to maximise our recycling targets.


Timber – this is used for animal bedding, garden mulch and is also used as a fuel.

Metal – once segregated this is bulk loaded to the scrap metal merchant for reprocessing.

Brick/Concrete –this is crushed and re-used as hardcore for back filling, foundations or bases for concrete.

Excavation Waste – we screen and re-screen and this is re-used as graded hardcore or soils.

Cardboard/Paper – once segregated this is bulk loaded and delivered to the local recycling plant and reprocessed.

Green Waste/Plasterboard – once separated, this is bulk loaded for reprocessing and used as soil conditioner.

Plastic – this is reprocessed and used as new plastic items.
