Blue Machinery Central are proud to announce the completion of a new state-of-the-art MRF (materials recovery facility) for our long standing customer, Willshee’s Waste & Recycling. The new facility based in Swadlincote, Derbyshire, was designed and installed by Blue. It incorporates the world’s leading technologies and innovations, making it the most automated commercial recycling plant in the UK.

The MRF is processing Commercial and Industrial Waste, and has a throughput of around 40 tonnes per hour. Blue have combined a number of industry leading brands for this project, including: Westeria, Tomra, Spaleck, BRT Hartner and many more.

Willshee’s Waste & Recycling, who have been a long standing customer for Blue Central, is a family run business based in Burton-on-Trent. Established in 1984 by founders Keith and Maria Willshee, with just one lorry and ten skips, the company today boasts a large fleet of modern vehicles and two state of the art recycling centres. They have grown to become one of the leading waste and recycling companies in the Midlands.

Willshee’s have just launched their new website, you can find it here.

The new plant has allowed Willshee’s to increase their tonnage, whilst also providing a guarentee to customers of zero waste to landfill!
