Recycler Advance Reopens California MRF

California waste hauler and recycler Advance Disposal Co. Inc. has reopened its upgraded material recovery facility (MRF).

The Hesperia-based Advance expanded its MRF to process 50 tons per hour (TPH) compared with its previous level of 20 TPH. It now operates on one extended shift instead of two because of the increased throughput.

San Diego-based MRF provider CP Group provided the design and equipment for the upgraded operation, according to its news release.

Advance Disposal serves residents and businesses in the cities of Hesperia, Oak Hills, Spring Valley Lake and unincorporated Apple Valley.

CP Group decommissioned the old equipment, which included an in-feed conveyor and shaker screen, while leaving the sort station to be reused in the new system. The new equipment installed to increase the system throughput and increase material recovery levels included the CP metering drum, CP trommels, overbelt magnets, CP scalping screen, CP glassbreaker screen, 2 CPscreens with proprietary cam-disc screening technology, eddy current separator and a fines trommel.
