Single Stream Recycling

Despite efforts to separate types of refuse, most trash collection still consists of mixed recyclables. A typical municipality’s trash is going to consist of newspapers, cardboard, glass bottles, cans, plastics, all mixed together. Our single stream recycling equipment is second to none in separating plastic, glass, metals, and fiber into clean reusable commodities. Typically, our systems sort diverse material into clean compacted cubes ready to be sold to a recycling market.

Our single stream recycling system is durable but affordable, and will deliver a quality product that’s the equal of any on the market. If you would like more information about the specifics of our single stream recycling system or the successes of former customers with our systems, contact us below.
