community recycling projectQCR helps South Wales recycling community project grow

This recycling project is a community regeneration organisation that serves Merthyr Tydfil, South Wales. Their Zero Waste Project aims to reach 70% recycling volumes in the area using social marketing techniques to influence residents in this traditionally 'hard to engage' estate. All staff are local residents and materials are sold for the benefit of local good causes.


A QCR Horizontal 600H produces dense mill-size bales of cardboard, tins/cans, plastic, HDPE, PET and paper. Material is stored in bays and rotated through the baler.


The catchment area for the scheme is 2,500 households. The project aims to bale over 500 tonnes of material which would have otherwise gone to land fill.

Customer quote

"Being a small operation it is very difficult to find companies that can help us, our throughputs do not give us the revenue to justify expensive solutions. Without QCR the project would never have got off the ground". Project Manager.


They needed a partner to spead up their operations and maximise revenue streams from recycled material. QCR provided the best solution on a rental basis with free training and back-up support.
