Set to open this summer, Mazza Recycling’s brand-new single stream recycling facility will be the first complete positive sorting design on the east coast.
As part of their pledge to invest $15 million into single stream recycling, the sorting facility uses state-of-the-art sizing and optical technology to recycle more materials from the stream, and produce quality products.
According to the article published in NJB Magazine, the system will also reduce the need to use up the planet’s remaining natural oil that is used to manufacture new plastic products. Another reason for the investment is Mazza’s mission to not onlyl preserve natural resources, but to also extend the life-cycle of plastics, paper, cardboard, and metal containers.
“Consumers, producers, packers, and manufacturers all have a responsibility to our planet and future generations. If people are misinformed about the proper ways to recycle, then our goal to eliminate waste will not make as large of an impact. We believe that it is important to educate the youth on the importance of recycling and the proper items that can be recycled. By investing in this facility and speaking about it in schools and at local community events, we hope to increase awareness about recycling to people who are not handling their recyclable materials properly,” says Christian Morgan, material recovery facility plant manager.
