E.L. Harvey & Sons Announces Opening of New Single Stream Recycling Facility

E.L. Harvey & Sons, Inc. is proud to announce the opening of our new single stream recycling facility.  This new building will process up to 600 tons per day of single stream recyclables, further expanding our ability to serve our customers and community in reducing their waste stream and aiding the environment.  Click here to check out our photo gallery.

Single stream recycling is a system in which all paper fibers, plastics, metals, and other containers are mixed in a collection truck.  In single stream recycling, both the collection and processing systems are designed to handle fully commingled recyclables, with materials being separated for reuse at our materials recovery facility.

E.L. Harvey & Sons, Inc. recently installed Bulk Handling Systems‘ (BHS) single stream processing system in our new 80,000 sq. ft. facility located in Hopkinton, MA.  BHS developed the first single stream processing system in the United States and they have been setting the standard for performance and reliability ever since.

The system allows single stream recyclables to be automatically sorted into quality products desired by mills and processors.
