Sherbrooke OEM’s says their lastest dry commercial waste recycling line, designed and built for Capitol Recycling, located in Hartford, CT, has set a new standard in the industry. The retrofitted system has a special finger screen that replaces the traditional OCC screen. The downtime from material wrapping around the rotating shafts is completely eliminated, and a pre-sort conveyor before screening is no longer needed. Processing capacity is also increased while reducing the overall required manpower.
The Capitol Recycling plant was originally processing fibre and was upgraded by OEM in 2011 to process a wider range of material types. The retrofitted sorting line can now process dry commercial waste as well as commercial and residential single stream material.
