The CP Group, headquartered in San Diego, has announced the reintroduction of the McMRFTM. The company says its McMRF is designed to handle, process and separate single-stream materials at about 10 tons per hour.

The CP Group has owned the McMRF trademark for years, inheriting the name when CP Manufacturing acquired Count Recycling in 2000. The McMRF was originally designed to process only containers.

The company says it has re-engineered the system to process single-stream recyclables to appeal to small communities that do not need a full-scale MRF (material recovery facility). The company says the system provides the benefits of a larger system, including high-quality machinery, high recovery rates and high material quality, and gives small communities the option to process material within their towns, thereby decreasing their hauling costs.

Sonoco Recycling President Ray Howard says the company’s new McMRF is one of Sonoco’s smaller sorting systems. “CP Group helped us design and build this system. No one else wanted to come into the small communities and put in a full-scale MRF like this,” Howard says. “What you see today is a system that can handle up to 3,000 tons a month—it is different, it is new and it is doing a great job. It's cleaner, it is modernized and it is a state-of-the-art facility.”

The CP Group describes the McMRF as “an affordable compact solution that can fit into a 20,000-square-foot building.” According to the company, it is capable of achieving a 95 to 98 percent recovery rate and can be operating using a compact wheel loader and a forklift.

“The McMRF is modular in design with field-proven equipment and our latest advances in machinery. It is easy to operate and delivers the best material separation,” says John Kemp, director of field services, CP Group.

The CP Group consists of CP Manufacturing, Krause Manufacturing, MSS, IPS Balers and Advanced MRF. The company designs, builds and installs material recovery facilities for various applications. More information is available at or at
