JAN 2017

Dear All

We are pleased to advise that due to the continued support of all of our customers and the fact that we are currently adding thirty (30) plus new contracted customer sites each month to our existing customer base we shall be adding a further three new refuse trucks to our fleet, taking our waste recycling collection fleet up to fifteen (15) as of 1st March 2017. This investment of circa four hundred thousand pound and with a further investment of one hundred thousand pound in new containers, we feel this will assist us in our continued desire to deliver the very best possible service to all of our customers in Devon and Cornwall.

We are also pleased to advise that we shall shortly be rolling out all the containers required to service a new two year contract with St Austell Brewery managed houses and brewery sites. Our services will include, General waste recycling, separate dry mixed recycling, separate glass collection/recycling and separate food waste collection/recycling all due to start in March 2017.

Zero to Landfill!!


We are pleased to advise all of our customers that, after we have collected their general waste products and have brought them back to our MRF (materials recovery facility) we are now achieving 99% landfill diversion rate.


This has been achieved by either source segregated food waste collection or by the introduction of our state of the art BTTU (Bio Thermic Treatment Unit).  This unit treats the trommel fines that we remove from our general waste and after treatment the dry residuals can then be added to your RDF (Refused Derived Fuel).  This refuse derived fuel is used to create green energy and therefore this material does not go to LANDFILL!



Waste Hierarchy

We continue to strive for our ‘zero to landfill’ objective for businesses in Cornwall.

Here is a simple guide showing the government directive to help us achieve this goal.


Dear All,

Following on from a very successful Royal Cornwall Show, H&A Recycling Ltd are pleased to announce that we are currently achieving an 86.9% landfill diversion rate.

Within our Material Recovery Facility (MRF), we will shortly be installing a new Bio Thermic Digester, which will have the effect of securely containing our trommel fines inside a sealed unit and therefore, reducing odours and trommel fines by up to 70%. We will then be able to dispose of the trommel fines as Refuse-derived Fuel (RDF) instead of taking it to landfill. With the introduction of this new technology into our MRF, we will be able to move as close as possible to our Zero to Landfill goal.

We are also pleased to announce that our customers can now request separate food waste collections and this is disposed of at an Anaerobic Digestion (AD) plant in Plymouth.

For more information on any of our services, please email sales@harecycling.co.uk


Dear All,


H&A Recycling Ltd is extremely pleased with how the new MRF (Material Recovery Facility) is operating.


The MRF opened in March this year, creating 12 new local jobs and is already achieving a 70% landfill diversion. After the initial testing start and some odour problems, the MRF has now turned into an absolute necessity to enable H&A to become ‘Zero to Landfill’ in 2014.


Recently, we have installed state of the art odour suppressant equipment and a brand new addition of a bale wrapper. This will now allow us to wrap the dirty materials that are not acceptable as a recyclate and create an RDF (Refuse Derived Fuel) which will go on to create green energy.


H&A Recycling Ltd is now researching all possibilities with regards to the treatment of the remaining 30% organic fraction that it has separated from the incoming general waste materials.


We will also shortly be testing more new equipment to achieve a company goal of ‘Zero to Landfill’ by 2014.
