Longwood, FL-based Waste Pro has hired San Diego-based CP Group to install a single-stream recycling facility in Sarasota that processes 13-15 tons per hour.
The MRF will take in materials from the Sarasota-Brandenton region to include cardboard, mixed paper, news print, and plastic containers. Among system features are a CP OCCScreen, a CP Glass Breaker Screen, and a new baler line adding to an existing baler line.
The new single-stream MRF should be running full throttle by July, according to Waste Pro.
Waste Pro was looking for design flexibility to operate the new single-stream system in one building while continuing to make use of the existing building.
The goal was to maximize space and integrate systems while finding a way to incorporate the existing baler feed in a small footprint. With expanded resources, the completed design accommodates full baling and storage capabilities in the existing building.
Waste Pro was as interested in the sorting technology; the OCCScreen captures cardboard, while the Glass Breaker Screen captures glass and removes pieces from fiber and containers.
"This is essential for cleaner products going forward in the system, since glass is a main contaminant in single-stream throughout the United States," said Frank Casagrande, Waste Pro director of Recycling Operations, in a press release.
CP has been on a roll; recently signing on to build a single-stream facility for Buffalo, IA-based Waste Commission of Scott County (WCSC). And the company partnered with Republic, bringing CP technology into that corporation's Clark County, NV recycling facility.
