Material Recovery Facility (MRF)
OPEN TO COMMERCIAL CUSTOMERS ONLY AT THIS TIME
NOT OPEN TO THE PUBLIC FOR DROP-OFF
Here is a definition of our MRF:
Our MRF is designated as a clean MRF. There are a variety of clean MRFs. The most common are single stream where all recyclable material is mixed, or dual stream MRFs, where source-separated recyclables are delivered in a mixed container stream (typically glass, ferrous metal, aluminum and other non-ferrous metals, #1 – #7 plastics) and a mixed paper stream (including OCC, ONP, OMG, office packs, junk mail, etc.). Material is sorted to specifications, then baled, shredded, crushed, compacted, or otherwise prepared for shipment to market.
Did you know EVERY year, Americans generate more than 230 million tons of solid waste?
By recycling about 30% of our waste every year, Americans save the energy equivalent of 11.9 billion gallons of gasoline and reduce the greenhouse gas equivalent of taking 25 million cars off the road. For every 1 million tons of material recycled rather than landfilled, we save the energy equivalent of:
• Aluminum: 35,680,000 barrels of oil
• Glass: 460,000 barrels of oil
• Newspaper: 2,920,000 barrels of oil
• Office paper: 1,760,000 barrels of oil
• Mixed residential paper: 4,010,000 barrels of oil
• PET (plastic): 9,100,000 barrels of oil
• HDPE (plastic): 8,870,000 barrels of oil
