Houston’s One Bin Waste Management Strategy

“The process utilized in Houston will remove materials of less than two inches early in the sorting process to minimize contamination.  From there, products will be sorted into various “streams” for resale, reuse, or disposal. In addition to mining all conventional recyclable commodities, the design will produce compost or carbon-neutral fuel streams from the remaining organic waste.  All components of the facility and process are field-tested and proven, arranged to maximize productivity, uptime, and diversion rates.”
