MRF Project Yields Best Practices on Fiber Sorting

The Regional Municipality of Niagara, Ontario, installed a fiber optical sorting system at its MRF that included two TITECH sorters from Van Dyk Recycling Solutions. A year later, the MRF was generating a cleaner newsprint stream and greater volumes of OBB/OCC for sale. Specifically, contamination in the newsprint stream dropped from 30.1 percent to 11 percent. Additionally, the MRF is recovering and selling nearly 60 percent more OBB/OCC than before.
