The clothing/textile is initially transported securely to our destruction site. Secure destruction then takes place with our custom-built cross-cut shredding waste processing
Destruction is traceable via a secure audit trail throughout the whole process following the security shredding standards. Our high-capacity cross-cut shredding destruction system will shred in excess of 2 tons per hour. This is the beginning of the recycling process.
The shred is a cross-cut system so there is full security assured. No items can ever be reconstructed once they have been through the secure destruction process. Once the secure destruction of the waste material is complete, it is then baled into what is known as ‘mill-size’ bales and transported to the specialist mills we work in partnership with.
Working with Avena for your secure destruction process, you can be assured of guaranteed security and integrity yet benefit from the most ultimate environmentally sustainable package that can be offered in the marketplace.
Through extensive research and development, we have created the complete environmentally sustainable package. This has allowed us to eradicate the ‘recycling issue’ when destroying corporate workwear for brand security reasons. By working with many textile and recycling mills we have now managed to develop a strategy to recycle this fibre.
Once baled at the depot, the waste will then be exported to various specialist recycling mills and organisations around the world. The baled fibre material is then put through a process that splits the bales’, takes the shredded waste through various processes and finally stretches it into a fibrous material. This innovative material has a wide variety of uses including geotextiles, special papers and other innovative products.
Initially, the shredded waste is taken through a number of processes through various types of conveyors and finally stretched into a fibrous material. Custom-built machinery specifically designed for the whole process takes the shredded material in and then processes it into the ingenious fibre. The fibre is then compacted, then baled again, and at this stage, it is then ready for distribution to the end-users. The whole process is environmentally sustainable.
Some of the many materials we process are:
- Jute Sisal
- Acrylic Polyester
- Complex Blendings Thermoplastics
- Glass Fibre
