MRF of the Moment: Mixed-waste facility targets multiple streams(I)
Mar. 14, 2018
A $24 million operation designed to sort single-stream material, mixed waste and C&D debris has opened on the California coast.
Monterey Regional Waste Management District (MRWMD) has started up its new mixed-waste MRF, a 100,000-square-foot facility supplied by Bulk Handling Systems. The district is made up of the following nine member municipalities: Carmel-by-the-Sea, Del Rey Oaks, Marina, Monterey, Monterey County, Pacific Grove, Pebble Beach Community Services District, Sand City and Seaside.
The new waste sorting system has two separate lines: The multi-material line processes 30 tons per hour of commercial and residential single-stream recyclables, or it can sort 40 tons per hour of commercial mixed waste. A separate construction and demolition debris line can handle another 40 tons per hour.
