The 2ZFL site is designed to optimise the efficient treatment of both wet and dry material.
We not only recycle road sweepings but also soil, gully waste and interceptor waste from the highways, MRF fines, glass and MBT fines.
The site has been designed to minimise turnaround time. Typically tanker turnaround is under 5 minutes improving productivity and reducing gate fees.
We have a fully equipped dewatering bay to enable receipt of wet materials. The tanker reverses and tips into a concrete bay and drives away – simple and fast.
The bay has a sump within the building – our recycled stone is used as a drainage material to allow liquid to pass to the sump with the solid being retained in the bay ready for processing through the plant with the other dry material.
The contaminated water passes through the gravel bed into a sump from where the water is treated using the electrocoagulation and DAF water treatment plant. Oil is collected from the DAF whilst any sludge is dewatered.
The solids are picked up from the dewatering bed (including the gravel bed) and passed into the solids washing system.
All final products are washed with water which has been cleaned through the OPS water treatment system.
