Recycling is without a doubt an intensive effort — if you are doing it right, that is. But here at Karl Schmidt Mfg. Inc., we dedicate our workdays to developing material handling systems like conveyor systems, dumpers, fluffers, and sorting systems so that recycling operations like yours can operate more efficiently.
When it comes to the recycling industry, there is a lot of controversy regarding whether or not single-stream or dual-stream recycling efforts or more efficient than one another. That being said, when it comes down to it, the method of recycling that becomes more efficient is solely dependent on the size and intent of your recycling operation, as well as what material handling systems that you have in place.
In today’s blog, we are going to be discussing in-depth the difference between single-stream and dual-stream recycling systems, as well as the positives and negatives of using each recycling method.
