For the third consecutive year, a facility with a CP Group system has received a SWANA Gold Award.
SAN DIEGO, CA (August 3, 2016) – For the third year in a row, the Solid Waste Association of North America (SWANA) has awarded the Gold Excellence Award in the Recycling Systems category to a recycling system developed by CP Group.
The 2016 Gold Excellence Award in Recycling Systems was won by Republic Services’ Southern Nevada Recycling Center, located in North Las Vegas, NV. The system features next-generation separation technology designed, manufactured and installed by CP Group.
The massive 70 tons per hour recycling center, recognized as “North America’s largest and smartest residential recycling center” is capable of processing two million pounds of recyclables per day.
“The new system is a powerhouse,” says CP Group’s Patrick Nicol, Lead System Engineer of the system. “It is a dual-line recovery facility, designed to adapt to the ever-changing recycling stream. We are very proud of our partnership with Republic Services and applaud them for the investments made to advance recycling capabilities.”
“This Gold Award three-peat speaks for itself,” says Terry Schneider, President and CEO of CP Group. “Naturally, we’ve always believed our systems were far ahead of the curve. These awards are confirmation that the recycling industry agrees with us.”
CP Group’s previous award-winning systems include: Dem-Con single stream system (2015 Gold Award); PVT Land C&D recycling system (2015 Silver Award); and Republic Services’ Dallas/Fort Worth Recycling Center (2014 Gold Award).
The Excellence Awards will be presented at SWANA’s annual conference, WASTECON®, on Tuesday, August 23, 2016, in Indianapolis, Indiana.
Facility was redesigned to process single-stream recyclables.
The Scott Area Recycling Center, Davenport, Iowa, recently hosted a grand reopening of its material recovery facility (MRF), which was updated earlier this year to process singe-stream recyclables. The MRF, originally opened in 1995 to process dual-stream recyclables, now can process 10 tons per hour of residential single-stream material.
The equipment and changes to the facility were funded through a general obligation bond issued by Scott County that was secured with revenue agreements from theWaste Commission of Scott County and the cities of Davenport, Bettendorf and other commission members. The recycling equipment cost $3.1 million, which facility construction costing $4.6 million.
The facility design team included Foth Infrastructure and Environment LLC, De Pere, Wisconsin; FEH Design, Sioux City, Iowa; and KJWW Engineering Consultants, Des Moines, Iowa. Tricon Construction Group, with locations in Dubuque and Cedar Rapids, Iowa, and the CP Group, San Diego, were responsible for facility construction.
The MRF includes an OCCScreen to remove cardboard, a CPScreen to separate 2D material from 3D material, an overbelt magnet, an eddy current separator and a glass cleanup system from the CP Group.
On hand for the ribbon cutting, along with members of the community and government officials, were Institute of Scrap Recycling Industries (ISRI) and ISRI Paper Stock Industries Chapter members Midland Davis, headquartered in Moline, Illinois, and Pratt Industries, headquartered in Conyers, Georgia.
Midland Davis has a long-term fiber marketing agreement with Scott County and recently partnered with Pratt Industries to purchase of much of the county’s paper. Within hours of curbside pickup, the paper is sorted, baled and shipped to Pratt’s new greenfield mill in Valparaiso, Indiana. Then within approximately 48 hours of receipt, it is made into new boxes that are sold primarily within the region, the companies say.

10 TPH Single Stream Curbside Residential System
APACHE JUNCTION, AZ (July 27, 2016) – Right Away Disposal, an Arizona-based, locally owned and operated waste and recycling provider, recently opened a new McMRF®, a small material recovery facility (MRF) provided CP Group.
The new system features improved system integration and new CP Group disc screens.
CP Group worked with Right Away Disposal to engineer a McMRF® system design, utilizing both new and existing equipment. CP Group incorporated Right Away Disposal’s existing sort lines, conveyors, and a baler with new CP disc screens in order to automate the system, process a higher throughput, and recover more commodities.
The new disc screens include a CP Glass Breaker Screen and a CPScreenTM, which both feature the patented CP Cam-DiscTM for the segregation of 2D from 3D material. A new CP OCCScreenTM was also installed.
Terry Schneider, CEO of CP Group, says, “This facility shows how CP is able to blend existing equipment with our own to create a low-cost, highly effective solution.”
Running 10 tons per hour, the new system is helping Right Away Disposal achieve its recovery goals for OCC fines, fiber, OMP, and containers. “Commodities are captured in cages rather than bunker silos,” says Schneider. “It’s another way we kept the system affordable while maintaining CP’s high standards of engineering and performance.”
The system serves Apache Junction, AZ and surrounding communities.
