Our Facilities

OVERVIEW

We have three operational sites in Carlisle, Workington and Penrith. Each site has a MRF (Material Recycling Facility), active bailing operations for pre-sorted materials and the capability to separate mixed waste streams. Materials that are segregated on site include but are not limited to:

  • Cardboard & paper
  • Wood
  • Metal – including aluminium and steel cans
  • Plastic
  • Construction/demolition waste

HESPIN WOOD, CARLISLE

As well as the on site MRF, our flagship site Hespin Wood is home to a wood and green waste recycling facility. This facility alone processes around 70,000 tonnes per year. Also sited at Hespin Wood is our aggregate recycling plant. This is where we crush, clean and sort mixed aggregates into reusable material for the construction and building industries.

DISTINGTON, WORKINGTON

Our site near Workington is home to our liquid waste treatment plant and our hazardous waste transfer station. The site is licensed to accept a wide range of drummed and packaged waste streams.

With a team on qualified chemists based on site to offer professional guidance, the service is not only comprehensive but it also provides our customers with peace of mind that their waste is being handled in a safe and compliant way.

FLUSCO, PENRITH

Our Flusco site is home to a newly extended MRF. This is a valuable asset to the business as it allows us to increase capacity for the area in terms of collections and increasing recycling outputs.

KIRKHOUSE QUARRY

The newest addition to the Cumbria Waste Group facilities, is our quarry near Carlisle. Our Lakeland Minerals division is focussed entirely on supplying premium quality sand and gravels.
