Municipal Solid Waste (MSW)

Unlock your Waste to Energy potential

MSW – like C&I waste – has dominated the media headlines over the past decade, for the growing role it plays in the USA’s resource and renewable energy agenda. Once considered merely dirty household trash, municipal waste can now be rigorously processed to extract as many recyclables as possible, and produce a profitable fossil fuel replacement.

  • Why shred MSW?

    Whilst the reduction of waste at source is undoubtedly the priority – and the public’s environmental conscience is slowly rising – US MSW levels remain difficult to manage. Local authorities, MRFs and alternative fuel producers have a duty to maximize reuse, recycling and energy recovery rates from this complex waste stream.
