CP Group to Install MRF at Waste Pro Facility

Waste Pro has selected San Diego-based CP Group to install a new 13 to 15 tons per hour single stream recycling facility in Sarasota, Fla.

“We have worked with CP previously and look forward to installation starting in May,” Waste Pro Regional Vice President Keith Banasiak said in a statement. ”We should be fully operational by July.”

The facility will bring new recycling capabilities to the Sarasota-Brandenton region and will focus on recovery of old cardboard containers #11, mixed paper #2, old news print #8, and plastic containers numbered 1 – 7.  Waste Pro serves more than 245,000 customers in the region.

Waste Pro will house the new single stream system in a new 14,000-sq.-ft. building, while still utilizing the existing 30,000-sq.-ft. building. The design enables a baler line to be incorporated in the existing building, while reusing the current baler line with the new processing equipment aligning with it.

CP had to shorten the conveyors on the system without sacrificing sorting ability in order to incorporate the existing baler feed in a small footprint.

CP disc screens are at the heart of the system’s recovery technology. The CP OCCScreen captures cardboard commodities, while the CP Glass Breaker Screen captures glass and removes glass fines from fiber and containers.  The CPScreen uses cam-lobe discs that offer the proper agitation needed to separate 3D material.
