ReCommunity Launches Recycling Facility in Tucson, Arizona

ReCommunity Recycling has begun operation of a new recycling facility in Tucson, Ariz.

The new facility can process 25 tons per hour of newspaper, mixed paper, cardboard, beverage cartons, steel, aluminum and glass, the Charlotte, N.C.-based ReCommunity said in a news release. The facility was designed, manufactured and installed by the CP Group of National City, Calif.

The recycling system installed at the new facility includes advanced automated sorting capabilities that allow for the identification, separation and recovery of recyclables.

“Tucson is a gleaming example of the end result of combining ReCommunity’s operational expertise and knowledge with CP Group’s design flexibility and experience. The result is a well-designed plant that will serve the Tucson community for years to come,” said Sean Duffy, ReCommunity president and chief operating officer.
