“Wow,” I thought, dragging from my memory blank the layers of our surrounding atmosphere. Read More…

Build a MRF
MSW Management │ May 2015
When a municipality or a hauler wants to build a new materials recycling facility, it has to consider many aspects prior to construction. Before breaking ground, letting to bid, and even issuing Requests for Proposals (RFPs), many consult experts to help define their needs, as well as the potential of, and for, a material recovery facility (MRF).
Bob Rella and Deb Frye, senior vice presidents at HDR Engineering—national practice leaders for solid waste facilities, specializing in structural/civil and mechanical, respectively—have worked with many clients, providing oversight and helping develop projects. Their recommendations are independent of vendors, but, because of their experience in the industry, they are able to anticipate vendor input and modify based on the vendor selected.

Rella adds, “The site drives [the plan]. There may be unusable portions due to wetlands, for example. Each one is unique.” Read More…
