What happens at Garston Solvent Recycling Facility?

Material arrives on site, this could be:

  • Unwanted paint dropped off at Household Waste Recycling Centres
  • Solvent used in industry to create electronics that we use everyday like laptops
  • Solvent used in the pharmaceutical manufacture of life saving drugs

All material is first sampled in our laboratory to check the specification, it’s then loaded into feed tanks for recovery by the distillation team where pure solvent is separated from contaminants.

Once the distillation process is complete, the recycled material is analysed in the laboratory to ensure it meets the standards required from our customers.
