Recology Opens MRF in Seattle

Recology Inc. has opened a new 75,000 sq.-ft. material recovery facility (MRF) in Seattle.

The facility, operated by the Recology CleanScapes subsidiary of the San Francisco-based company, will process both commercial and residential commingled recyclable materials, according to a news release. The facility can process more than 90,000 tons of recyclables annually.

The MRF system at the Seattle facility was designed, manufactured and installed by Eugene, Ore.-based Bulk Handling Systems. It will include screen, air and optical solutions.

The company currently provides solid waste and recycling collection service in Washington for the cities of Seattle, Shoreline, Des Moines, Issaquah and Carnation. Service for Burien, SeaTac and Maple Valley will begin later this year.

“This facility will play an important role in helping the region meet its environmental goals,” said Dan Bridges, Recology CleanScapes general manager.
