Drill Mud Recycling

reDirect Recycling operates one of New South Wales largest drill mud recycling facilities, returning treated mud fines and aggregates to be used as engineered fill, sand, and specialist soil, fertiliser and compost products which are sold on for use in the building, landscaping and agricultural industries, contributing to the circular economy.

The technology installed at the site in Vineyard, NSW uses vibrating platform screen technology to separate solid/liquid waste that requires classification or dewatering.

With a commitment to providing customers with soil waste disposal solutions that minimise both environmental impacts and overall costs, reDirect Recycling offers two convenient options for the recovery of drill mud.
