Pratt Industries, a paper and packaging company, recently celebrated the opening of its newest recycling material recovery facility, or MRF, today at its campus in Conyers.
The plant, which will receive materials from both municipal and commercial recycling programs, is the most advanced MRF in Georgia, according to a press release from the company. It can process both residential and commercial single-stream recyclables, source-separated and baled materials. These include various grades of paper, plastic and metal as well as other materials.
In 2013, the city of Conyers chose Pratt Recycling to be its residential and commercial waste services provider, as well as the recycler to service all households in the city, for single-stream recycling. At that time, Pratt built a municipal solid waste transfer station on the campus, the company’s first.
