Our MRFs

What is a MRF and how does it work? 

A MRF is like a giant factory where the recyclable materials collected from homes and businesses are taken to be sorted into different waste streams.

Depending on their configuration, MRFs can accept either source-separated or fully co-mingled recyclables. MRFs use manual and mechanical processes to sort and recover recyclable materials such as plastic, aluminium, glass, paper and cardboard into separate streams. They are then baled and transported to be remanufactured into new products including glass containers, aluminium cans, paper, cardboard, plastic packaging and steel products.
