BHS completes sorting system at Wisconsin MRF

Bulk Handling Systems (BHS) has completed the installation of a state-of-the-art 25 tonne-per- hour single stream sorting system at the new Material Recovery Facility (MRF) in Outagamie County, Wisconsin. The MRF is a joint effort of three counties — Brown, Outagamie, and Winnebago — and was built to process material from the new single stream program developed by the three counties. The program is expected to generate greater volumes of recyclable materials and divert these materials from landfill. The three county single stream program combines paper with plastic, glass and metal recyclables.

The system focuses on the reduction of operating costs by optimizing integrated processes to emphasize mechanization and the extraction of recoverable materials on the first pass. As a result, quality is high, processing costs are low, and residue values are very low. Visit
