Anaconda TD516 trommel tackles mixed waste
Tackling the volume of waste going to landfill has been an issue for waste companies for many years.
As the landfill tax has increased, the effort to recycle has intensified, and Anaconda says it has seen a significant increase in its TD516 tracked trommel screen.
The screen “can provide a solution to separate the qualifying materials from the non-qualifying materials pre-landfill, thus avoiding the higher rate of tax.”
Mixed waste entering the trammel is broken down and small particles such as soil are sifted out while further separation of the oversized waste can be further separated by trained picking operatives who remove any wood, plastic, cardboard or other valuable recyclable materials. An overband magnet can also be fitted to collect any scrap metal.
