BDR Shanks waste treatment facility Manvers Rotherham

I did hear some time ago that there was a facility to separate household waste so that it didn’t go to landfill.   This is an initiative between Barnsley, Doncaster and Rotherham.

The first video shows the lorries arriving at Manvers, but little about the plant.  The second video shows a Mechanical Biological Treatment plant (MBT) and an Anaerobic Digestion plant (AD), but not necessarily the one produced by Shanks for Manvers.

Metal, plastics and glass are separated out and then much of what is left is rotted down in a biological way.  Byproducts of the waste are sent off to Ferrybridge to be burnt or used as Bio fuel, I am not 100% sure about this. I will try and get a full video of the whole process.

All the best
