Recycling Facilities or Material Recovery Facilities (MRF) are specialized plants that receive, separate and prepare recyclable materials for reuse in manufacturing recycled products. MRFs use specialized machines to sort single stream, municipal solid waste, commercial, industrial and construction & demolition recyclables into plastics, paper, cans, glass, etc.
The items are either compacted, crushed, or separated by type or resin identification codes. They are then compressed into bales for easy transportation to the location(s) that will be using them to create new recycled items. Consumers can participate in recycling programs through curbside pickup if offered by a municipality or collection company, drop-off centers, buy-back centers and deposit/refund programs.
