Rocklea Resource Recovery Facility targets ambitious recovery rates

Sorting technology ensures refuse extraction optimisation

New process Rocklea Resource Recovery Facility recovers plastic, cardboard, timber and ferrous scrap

Up to 50 tons of material per hour is processed

MEDIA RELEASE

Newly installed waste sorting technology at REMONDIS Rocklea Resource Recovery Facility is improving recovery rates and delivery on the Queensland Government’s landfill diversion and recycling ambitions.

Sorting technology is key to extracting as much valuable material as possible from refuse streams. After all, accurate sorting vastly improves the quality of recycled raw materials and yields resources that live up to customers’ expectations.

In an effort to do just this, REMONDIS has incorporated a new sorting process into the Rocklea Resource Recovery Facility near Brisbane.

This technology pairs a finger screen and magnets with a sorting line and picking cabin to recover plastic, cardboard, timber and ferrous scrap from commercial and industrial refuse arriving at the site.

The new system can process up to 50 tons of material per hour and is operated by seven employees. In total, REMONDIS processes over 130,000 tons of recyclables at its Rocklea Transfer Station.

The Rocklea Resource Recovery Facility is helping to increase the recycling rate for commercial and industrial refuse in Queensland as part of a government strategy that includes more ambitious landfill diversion and recycling targets.

The location also plays an important role in Australia’s efforts to be self-sufficient in recycled raw materials as it prepares to ban refuse exports in the coming years.
