ReCommunity Recycling Converts MRF to Single Stream

Article-ReCommunity Recycling Converts MRF to Single Stream

ReCommunity Recycling has converted its Memphis, Tenn., material recovery facility (MRF) to single-stream recycling.

The Charlotte, N.C.-based ReCommunity said in a news release the 42,000-sq.-ft. Memphis facility was converted from a dual-stream operation. The San Diego-based CP Group designed, manufactured and installed new equipment. The system began operations in January.

The modernized and upgraded system will process glass, aluminum, steel, plastic, newspapers, magazines and cardboard.  The facility will be able to automatically capture old corrugated cardboard (OCC), polyethylene terephthalate (PET) bottles, cartons/aseptic containers, steel, aluminum and other materials.

“Converting to single-stream makes recycling more convenient for residents and more likely to deliver economic, social and environmental impact for the community,” Sean Duffy, ReCommunity president and chief operating officer.
