Casepak Materials Recycling Facility

Co-mingled collections can only deliver good quality recycled resources if they are processed at an efficient Materials Recycling Facility (MRF).

The Casepak MRF exceeds the UK’s MRF Code of Practice requirements and produces TEEP compliant outputs, making it the ideal sorting and segregation destination for both local authority and commercial dry mixed recyclables. Located in Leicester with quick road links to the M1, the MRF incorporates advanced materials sorting technologies and is backed by our comprehensive quality grading and reporting system.

Working in partnership with local authority and commercial organisations nationwide, the MRF recovers at least 95% of material processed, maximising the quality and value of material outputs from dry mixed recycling schemes.

Managing your materials

Through our recycling and waste management programmes, we’ll help you to develop recycling collection methods and change behaviour to ensure that your recyclable materials meet reprocessor quality standards. We’ll work with you to avoid contamination and make recommendations on storage. Education is key and this is paramount in all Casepak’s partnerships.

The MRF has large pre and post-treatment storage areas. This gives you additional flexibility to manage fluctuating amounts of recyclable materials from kerbside collections.

Working together, we’ll minimise waste, optimise collections, and maximise the value of your recyclable materials.


Recycling process

Our process maximises the value of your materials while securing sustainable, fully traceable outlets.

To do this, we ensure that our material outputs always conform to reprocessor quality standards, are traded in accordance with all necessary regulations, and prioritise circular solutions over other forms of recycling.

We understand the fluctuating market dynamics and foster close partnerships with both suppliers and buyers of resources. This ensures that your material is always used in the optimum way. Wherever possible, we support home markets while ensuring that the price and value is competitive.

Material destinations

Recyclable material is an extremely valuable resource and a competitive marketplace operates worldwide, with different sectors sourcing and purchasing material for a range of reprocessing options. This results in some materials being exported. The UK has limited capacity for recycling, hence the need to export. However, where possible, Casepak will send materials for recycling within the UK.

Should material be exported for recycling, this is in line with the requirements set out by the Waste Shipment Regulation and auditing process of the Environment Agency (EA). Casepak is fully compliant with all legislation and ensures there is a clear audit trail which is used by the EA to provide evidence that material is exported to appropriately licensed facilities, and that agreed material quality standards are met.

The EA also carries out random checks at the docks before containers of materials are exported. This is a strict audit trail which allows the EA to track containers at the dock back to the facility that supplied them.



We rigorously analyse and report on all materials processed at the MRF. Our reporting system exceeds the MRF Code of Practice requirements and includes the monthly analysis of client input materials and the resulting outputs. These reports form the basis of our partnership approach to continuous recycling improvement.

Reports are prepared in a standard, easy to read format and can be amended to meet customer requirements. They are available in print and digital formats.


Account management

Customer service is at the heart of Casepak’s recycling services.

All clients have a dedicated account support team led by an account manager who ensures that the recycling service is responsive, timely, professional and personable.

At Casepak we understand that waste management and recycling services need to adapt to changing timetables and circumstances. When you’ve got an extra load of recyclable materials to process or need additional storage space, your Casepak account manager will provide a solution.
