RRRASOC was recently featured in the January 2013 edition of American City & County Magazine. The article discusses the conversion of the MRF to a single stream processing facility, with the assistance of ReCommunity Recycling investment. This project has increased tonnage capacity and employment at the MRF, among other significant savings for the participating communities.

About the MRF
The RRRASOC Materials Recovery Facility (or MRF) was completed in 1994. The facility was built on a site of a vacant manufacturing facility, symbolizing RRRASOC’s commitment to “recycling” the urban infrastructure. In partnership with its private operating contractor, ReCommunity Detroit, RRRASOC recently completed a program to retrofit the MRF from a dual stream to a single stream process. With these changes, recycling at the curb becomes easier and more convenient. The MRF is now capable of processing up to 25 tons of recyclable material per hour from residential curbside recycling programs, commercial and industrial businesses, and items collected from the two recycling drop-offs.
