Material Recovery Facility (MRF) Sorter

• Multiple positions available

Have you got what it takes to be a MRF Sorter?
NAWMA employs more than 40 energetic and hardworking individuals to sort recyclable materials collected in yellow-lid kerbside recycling bins. The work is carried out in air-conditioned sort rooms at NAWMA’s state-of-the-art Material Recovery Facility (MRF) in Edinburgh. Sorting the items properly into different streams is a key factor in NAWMA being able to recover material for recycling into new products, rather than sending it to landfill as waste.

Good sorting and resource recovery is all part of the new circular economy approach that NAWMA adheres to where products are broken down and used again, rather than relying on finite virgin natural resources. It makes economic sense and is good for the planet. NAWMA’s Chief Operating Officer, Danial Dunn, says sorters must be alert, use both hands and have a good eye for detail. “When you have a conveyor belt continuously moving a load of mixed recyclable material in front of you, it takes skill to be able to focus and retrieve the correct target material.”

To deal with the large volumes of recycling received from the local and wider communities, NAWMA is currently looking to employ more sorters at its Edinburgh MRF.
