Southern Tier Recycling is a recycling facility in conjunction with Taylor Garbage includes both mechanized and hand sorting for maximized material recovery from the waste stream. The specialized sorting and identification equipment created by Green Machine, Inc., a leader in the field of customized single stream processing systems, allows the plant to process up to 25 tons an hour of mixed recyclable materials. The advent of this facility will allow for expansion into new territories and the opportunity to bring recycling to areas that do not currently enjoy a recycling program of any kind.
The Taylor family was instrumental in bringing recycling to the Southern Tier of N.Y and aided Tioga County and other local counties in creating a thriving recycling program that has been a benefit to the local economy and ecology.
Recycling has always been of great importance to the Taylor family and the local community.
The company anticipates at least a 20 to 30% increase in participation with the switch over to a fully no sort curbside pickup of recycling. A great asset to an area that already enjoys one of the best recycling programs in the US. The ease of the process for the customer at the curb, who will no longer have to sort the material and can put all recyclables in one container, will encourage even more people to take part in the program.
