Marten Gregory, Dorset Waste Partnership (DWP) Staff Briefings – 14 &15 March 2013 Councils Working Together The Service

Introduction Dorset Waste Partnership Benefits of new service New recycling and rubbish service Feedback on Christchurch and part East Dorset roll out (tranche 1) Questions

What is the Dorset Waste Partnership? County-wide partnership for waste management and street cleansing –Christchurch Borough Council, Dorset County Council, East Dorset District Council, North Dorset District Council and Purbeck District Council – April 2011 –West Dorset District Council and Weymouth and Portland Borough Council – from April 2013 Waste collection & disposal - whole system/whole cost decision making Improved services while reducing costs

The Service Dorset Waste Partnership First year achievements –Single collection service agreed –Plans in place to reach 65% recycling rate –£1.4m savings Second year achievements –Implementation of new recycling, rubbish and garden waste collection service to 53,000 properties (‘tranche 1’) in Christchurch from 1 October 2012 in part of East Dorset from 29 October 2012 –Introductory letters and leaflets sent during January 2013 to 40,000 properties in East Dorset and North Dorset (‘tranche 2’) Councils Working Together

Benefits of the new service Increase our recycling rate to 65% diverting more waste away from landfill Reduction of anticipated cost in excess of £2m per annum from 2014/15 Reduces the number of collection vehicles on the road Simple for residents of Dorset to recycle more materials eg plastic pots, tubs and trays Councils Working Together

Questions Questions? Councils Working Together

Tranche 2 rollout area (June 2013)

Where does it all go? ‘Dry’ recycables - delivered to one of a number of DWP transfer facilities. –Material is bulked up and sent directly to reprocessors (eg glass) or for further sorting at a Materials Recycling Facility (MRF) eg Shotton MRF*, North Wales. “Approximately 99% of all materials sorted at the Shotton MRF remain in the UK, with 80% of them travelling only a few miles to be reprocessed.” *

Paper and Cardboard These material are separated from the material mix with the use of mechanical screens (ballistic separators) designed to sort out two dimensional and three dimensional materials. Paper and Cardboard then get reprocessed at the UPM Shotton Mill into new products.

Plastics Near Infra Red Technology This is used to separate mixed plastics. Each Polymer reflects a unique level of light intensity which allows various plastic types to be removed from a conveyor into individual streams Once separated these plastics are chipped and pelletised for use in moulding new plastic products.

Cans Separating Steel from Aluminium Steel cans are separated from the material mix with the use of magnets operating over conveyors. Aluminium cans become magnetised when passed through a magnetic field allowing them to be extracted from the mix. This is know as eddy current separation Cans are melted down and reprocessed into more cans or aluminium ingots

Glass Glass collected in Dorset is sent to be reprocessed at plants operated by a company call Recresco. They also us optical sorting to separate the various colour fractions of Mixed Glass down to 10mm. The majority of this glass will go to re-melt and be recycled into new glass bottles and jars.

Food Waste - In Vessel Composting (IVC) This process holds the material in monitored and controlled conditions in order to meet Animal By Products regulations. Once the treatment cycle is complete a sanitised product is blended and used on the turf farms near Bournemouth Airport

Food Waste - Anaerobic Digestion (AD) This treatment breaks down the waste in the absents of oxygen producing biogas which can be used to generate electricity, heat which is used to maintain the temperature in the digester and digestate which can be applied to farm land as a fertiliser

Green Waste Windrow Composting Garden/Green waste is treated via windrow composting. First the material is shredded and blended before being laid out in rows. The material is then regularly turned to introduce oxygen to the compost as it breaks down into useful product.

Rubbish Historically much of Dorset’s waste went directly to landfill. The introduction of new service aims to avoid this method of disposal where possible. Environmentally and financially this is the most unsustainable method of dealing with waste. The DWP has contracts with three landfill providers located within and in close proximity to Dorset.

Rubbish - Mechanical Biological Treatment (MBT) At least 20,000 tonnes per year of rubbish from Dorset is treated at the New Earth Solutions MBT plant. This process extracts recyclables people have missed and composts any remaining organic matter. Some materials extracted from this process are sent for energy recovery and typically the plant achieves 75-80% diversion from landfill.

Energy From Waste At least 10,000 tonnes of rubbish per year is sent to the Energy from waste plant in Southampton operated by Veolia. Some metals are extracted for recycling and the plant provides electricity for 20,000+ local homes. This plant achieves 80% diversion form landfill.
