MATERIAL RECOVERY FACILITY (MRF)
One of the most innovative processing facilities in the world
Material Recovery Facilities (MRF's) are one of the most innovative processing facilities to enhance our recycling capabilities. These facilities processes and recycles residential and commercial waste, curb-side recyclables, food waste and construction and demolition waste streams. Some of the new new state-of-the-art processing equipment has enabled us to focus our recycling and processing efforts on removing organics and recyclables from incoming waste streams enabling recycling and composting as much as possible. The facility has consistently demonstrated recovery rates of more than 96% for recoverable materials.
The mechanical sorting mechanisms and processes include: conveyors, sorting stations, screens, separators, magnets, optical sorters, bag breaker, and an eddy current separator. Processing at the facility begins manually, becomes mechanical, and then goes back to a manual process for final quality control. The result is unparalleled diversion and consistently cleaner product.
