Welcome to Southern Tier Recyclers Inc.
Southern Tier Recyclers Inc. consists of a 30,000 square foot Single Stream recycling facility which became operational in September of 2012. The new facility is anticipated to produce a 20 to 30% increase in participation with the switch over to a fully no sort curbside pickup of recycling.
The facility 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.
What is Single-Stream Recycling?
It’s the easiest way to recycle!
Residents and collectors are no longer required to separate paper and containers, making curbside recycling much more convenient. And because paper and cardboard no longer need to be separated, residents don’t need brown-paper bags in which to pack them.
