The double deck OCC screen cleans the OCC while the TITECH shoots out the considerable amount of sorted office paper (SOP) found mixed in with the OCC. In this set up, three grades of paper are made: clean OCC, SOP and mixed paper.

Frank Antonacci, vice president of USA Recycling, says, “To say that we are happy with the system is an understatement.”
