material recovery facility seattleRecology CleanScapes, a subsidiary of Recology, headquartered in San Francisco, has officially opened a 75,000-square-foot material recovery facility (MRF) in South Seattle. The facility will process commercial and residential commingled recyclable materials.

Bulk Handling Systems (BHS), based in Eugene, Oregon, designed, manufactured and installed the MRF system, which is capable of processing more than 90,000 tons of recyclables per year. The MRF includes a range of equipment from BHS, including screening systems and air and optical devices.

“We are very proud to introduce this state-of-the-art facility to expand recycling capacity in the Pacific Northwest,” says Dan Bridges, general manager of Recology CleanScapes. “This facility will play an important role in helping the region meet its environmental goals.”

Recology CleanScapes provides solid waste and recycling collection services for the Washington cities of Seattle, Shoreline, Des Moines, Issaquah and Carnation. Service for Burien, SeaTac and Maple Valley will begin later in 2014.
