How to Increase the Efficiency of Your Material Recycling Facility

Print Friendly, PDF & Email


Material Recovery Facilities are important factories that are used to separate recyclable and non-recyclable materials. They work in conjunction with your waste handling systems to reduce industrial waste generated by your factories and, inadvertently, end up opening a secondary revenue stream.

Unfortunately, Material Recycling Facilities are often seen as a chore as making them profitable enough for huge investments is a complicated task. Furthermore, most MRFs function at astonishingly low operational efficiencies. This, alone, is enough to turn away people from setting up an MRF as they prefer not to investigate ways in which the efficiency of their MRF can be improved.

Today, we’ll be taking a closer look at an item that can single-handedly improve the performance of your Material Recycling Facility.

Introducing Sorting Lines:

It’s a well-known fact that MRFs receive waste from a number of different sources, ranging from recyclables generated from residential areas to industrial waste collected from factories. In other words, the average MRF is expected to deal with a vast variety of different wastes.

This is why most MRFs employ people to sort out the different kinds of waste so as to ensure a smoother processing. But, what if we told you that you don’t need to keep a team that separates different kinds of recyclable waste? What if the waste could automatically be separated without any manual labor whatsoever?

This is exactly what sorting lines bring to the table. In its essence, a sorting linecan separate different recyclables, allowing them to be processed more efficiently. This significantly reduces the risk of end-product contamination as automated sorting lines aren’t subject to human error.

How Sorting Lines Improve the Operational Efficiency of an MRF

We’ve already discussed how an automated sorting line can increase the operational efficiency of an MRF by reducing the probability of human error.

In fact, the MRF can be made even more efficient using OCC screens, steel conveyor belts, and elevated inspection platforms. All these additions serve as checks and balances that can significantly increase the amount of recyclables your MRF can handle. This, in turn, is bound to increase the profit your MRF generates on a daily basis.

Furthermore, you can even get a sorting line which is custom tailored to the specific needs of Material Recycling Facility. We at Crigler Enterprises boast a vast inventory of new and used recycling equipmentthat is bound to improve the performance of your MRF as we provide reliable MRF equipment such as screens and sorting lines, etc.
