Project Name: Material Recovery Facility at Touwsrivier

Client: Breede Valley Municipality, Western Cape, South Africa

Project Description:

With the closure of the Touwsrivier municipal waste disposal site the need was identified to establish a recycling centre where the community can recover materials of value from the waste stream before the waste is transported to the licensed Worcester municipal landfill some 85km away. This facility is a very small operation and also functions as a transfer station for collected waste, after separation by hand has been done.

The initial capacity of this facility was 10 t/d of mixed collected municipal solid waste and the project was designed as sub-consultants to iCE Consulting Engineers.
