The operations carried out in the CT are aimed at recovering the maximum amount of recyclable fractions from waste and properly disposing of everything that could not be recovered.

In the CT, lightweight packaging from the yellow container and waste from the organic and general waste container are received.

The packaging is separated and classified into different types, then compacted and packaged for subsequent transport to recycling plants.
Separated organic waste undergoes an aerobic composting process for transformation into compost.
The unrecoverable fraction is disposed of by depositing it in the controlled landfill.

The CTRU in Albacete provides services to the AGES 1-2 ‘Albacete and Cuenca Sur.’ It serves 108 municipalities: 87 in the province of Albacete and 21 municipalities in the southern part of the province of Cuenca.

The CTRU consists of a sorting plant, an outdoor bio-stabilization plant, and a reject landfill.

The sorting line is automated and processes both the ‘rest’ fraction and lightweight packaging from selective collection alternately.

The CTRU includes:

  • An automated shared line of 60 t/h for the ‘rest’ fraction and 5 t/h for lightweight packaging from selective collection, with a maximum capacity of 180,000 t/year,
  • A composting plant with a capacity of 100,000 t/year, and a reject landfill with a capacity of 300,000 t.

Transfer stations

Transfer stations are facilities where the collected waste from a UNION is grouped and adapted, and it is prepared for transport to the CTRU of each AGES through compaction.

A transfer station is essentially composed of two platforms at different levels and a series of ramps connecting them.

The upper platform houses the unloading area for collection vehicles, while the lower platform accommodates the area for semi-trailers with a mobile floor.

The waste is unloaded into 2 or 3 hoppers (depending on the station), each with a capacity of about 30 m3.

Its lower part fits into the loading mouth of the semi-trailer, equipped with rubber skirts to prevent spills.

The transfer station also includes a control area consisting of the weighing scale and the control booth, and it is equipped with all the necessary services for its proper functioning.
