New £1.2 million MRF for TJ Waste & Recycling

Materials recovery facility

Hampshire waste-management firm opens new materials recovery facility in Southampton

TJ Waste & Recycling have invested more than £1.2 million in a new MRF, which has the capacity to process 50,000 tonnes of waste per annum. The substantial investment by the recycling company also includes a new excavator, weighbridge, pre-picking belts and specialist screens for the sorting of materials.  

Licensed by the Environment Agency, the facility has been designed to recycle up to 85% of waste materials, including rubble and wood. It is the third such facility to be opened recently by TJ, accompanied by the company’s fleet of 122 mixed-use trucks and 182 staff across all of its sites.

John Gosling, managing director of TJ, said: ‘The location is ideal for trades to bring in their work-related waste for recycling before they stock up for their next jobs from nearby builders’ merchants. An initial 12 jobs will be created at the facility, which has seen a £1.2m investment by us in a land lease and associated plant to yield the highest levels of recycling possible.’

He continued: ‘Our aim is to ensure the least amount of material from our customers ends up in landfill, with up to 85% recycled by us and distributed as part of the closed recycling loop. The site, permitted by the Environment Agency, is the only one of its kind in inner-city Southampton, westwards from the river Itchen.’
