Shanks Waste Management’s new facility in South Kirkby, U.K., is maximizing separation technology to extract as much value as possible from the waste stream.
April 8, 2016 - Kristin Smith REW magazine
Material recovery facilities (MRFs) typically sort out commodities from single-stream recyclables such as paper and cardboard, plastic, metal containers and glass from single-stream materials collected from residents and commercial customers. While equipment from screens, optical sorters, magnets and eddy current separators and others can achieve a high level of separation, not all materials that are fed through the system are able to be included in the final product. This fraction of material, albeit a small percentage, can add up, especially at facilities that are processing at high volumes. These residuals often end up going to landfills at a cost to the recycler.Read more

MFR of the Month - From Resource Recycling Magazine
Conveniently located off Interstate 380, on a 12,5-acre plot of land situated next to the Hawkeye Downs Speedway, sits the most modern automated sorting system in the State of Iowa.
Operated by City Carton Recycling, the Cedar Rapids Recycling Facilities was build by Machinex.
Located in Roseville, Northern California, this dirty MRF built by Machinex is owned by Western Placer Waste Management Authority (WPWMA) and operate by Nortech. The big challenge of this MRF was that everything that comes to the site is processed, with recyclable materials-wood, greenwaste, metal, plastic, glass, and many types of paper-diverted for resale throughout in the world and nonrecyclable items sent to the landfill for disposal. On the drawing board, the project's goals were to increase diversion by approximately 20% and to expand processing capacity from 1,000 tons of trash per day to over 2,000 tons. What set this project apart from the rest was its advanced level of sophistication.
