Project Name: Hermanus Material Recovery Facility

Client: Overstrand Municipality, Western Cape, South Africa

Project Description: The project comprised the design and construction of a Material Recovery Facility adjacent to the existing refuse transfer station.

The waste received will be lifted to a mezzanine level via an incline conveyor from where two sorting conveyors will carry it past several picking stations on the mezzanine level. The recyclables removed from the waste stream will be dropped into storage containers on floor level, below the picking stations, and the tailings will be deposited in a 30m3 hook-lift container mounted on a dolly system.

The tailings from the MRF will be transported via road to the disposal site.
