Could Eco360 please provide general information regarding the Material Recovery Facility?
All blue bags are transferred to the MRF in which the bags are opened and recyclables are recovered through both manual and mechanical sorting processes. The recovered materials are sold and ultimately recycled into new materials and products. Materials include: PET and HDPE plastics, metals including steel and aluminum, plastic film, electronic waste, newsprint and cardboard.
In 2015 we recycled over 10,000 tonnes of materials comprised of paper, cardboard, plastic containers, metals, milk cartons and more. This represents 7 full tractor trailers leaving our site every week full of recycled material.
