Located in North Wales, The single-stream MRRF has been built adjacent to the UPM Shotton paper mill in to bring efficiencies to the UPM operation.

The Machinex sorting system is designed to process over 270 000 tonnes a year of recyclables from comingled collections from local authorities in the UK. This includes: papers, cartons, cardboard, plastic, glass and metal containers. The MRRF, in order to complement the existing paper-making operations at UPM’s Shotton site which presently recovers 640, 000 tonnes of waste paper and recycles this into newsprint each year, will derive approximately 120,000 tonnes high quality recovered paper from the new MRRF. This recovered paper issent from the MRF to the paper mill through a tunnel connecting the two buildings.

In the early 1980s, Machinex became the first company in Canada to design machinery for material recycling facilities. The company immediately established itself as a leader in designing profitable quality recycling sorting systems. Today, Machinex is still a world leader in the industry, developing cutting edge sorting, waste management and recycling technology. Over the years, they have designed and installed over 200 turnkey facilities in partnership with leading MRFs in Canada, the United States and Northern Europe.
