The CP Group, headquartered in San Diego, CA, has designed, manufactured and installed a new single stream recycling facility in Beacon, NY. The facility, built for ReCommunity, began running April 23rd, and is processing 25TPH.

The material recovery facility is estimated to process 57,000 tons this year and 90,000 in 2013. The facility serves the Dutchess County residents and businesses in the 56,000 square-foot plant that processes mixed fiber, OCC, plastic, glass, aluminum and steel into clean streams.

“We are very pleased with the facility. CP has exceeded our expectations with the overall design and the system performance. They have been very responsive to anything that we have needed, we are very impressed with their customer service”, says Ron Santos, Northeast Regional Manager at ReCommunity.

“Our goal at CP on all of our projects is to meet or exceed our customer’s expectations.  Given the feedback we’ve received, I believe the Beacon facility will be one that both the CP Group and ReCommunity can be proud and hold with high regard”, says Kevin Sullivan, Senior Project Manager at CP Manufacturing.

Included in the facility is the CP Group’s IPS Conquest™ 200S, a high-production multi-material processing baler with patented dual hinge-sides, allowing material to fall into the 72” wide charge box. The Conquest’s hydraulically-actuated wire tying capability ensures simplicity, ease of adjustment, long component life. This high-production baler produces a 1-ton paper bale every 60 seconds.

The facility includes several CP Disc Screens for automatic separation: a CP Scalping Screen that separates glass, small debris, and single serve containers from fiber; an OCCScreen which automatically separates cardboard (OCC) from other fibers; CP GlassBreaker Screen and Glass Cleanup System to break, separate and clean glass; 2 NEWScreens which effectively remove newspaper from mixed paper, containers, dirt and debris; a CPScreen, which automatically separates containers from mixed paper by means of patented disc screen technology.

The system also includes a CP Group optical sorter, the MSS Aladdin™, which sorts plastics by color as well as resin type, generating three output products are generated from one input stream. Film Vac systems and an Air Drum Separator were supplied by the CP Group’s partners, Impact Air and Ken Mills Engineering.

The CP Group is a team of manufacturers that design and supply processing systems for municipal solid waste, single stream recycling, front-end waste to energy systems, construction and demolition, commercial and industrial, green waste and e-waste recycling. The team, under common ownership, consists of CP Manufacturing, Krause Manufacturing, IPS Balers, MSS Optical Sorters, and Advanced MRF.

Located just 90 miles south Albany, Beacon, New York was once known as the “Hat-Making Capital of the U.S.,” with nearly 500 hat factories operating inside the city’s borders at one time. While those hat factories are long gone, the city is home to one new industrial facility – ReCommunity Beacon, a brand-new $7.5 million, 52,000-square-foot materials recovery facility.

The new MRF receives single-stream curbside and commercial recyclable materials from throughout the Greater Hudson Valley, including Dutchess, Ulster, Sullivan, Orange and Putnam counties, as well as parts of southwest Connecticut.

The brand-new facility features a 25 tons-per-hour, automated single-stream system, designed and manufactured by CP Manufacturing, with

one processing line and the additional capacity to process single line items directly to the baler, according to the company.

The MRF expects to process 57,000 tons of recyclables in 2012, with an estimated 90,000 tons expected to be processed in 2013. The material mix feeding into the facility is approximately 48 percent fiber and 52 RR | May 2012 15 percent containers, and the MRF boasts a 7.2 percent residue rate.


“The haulers that come to our facility couldn’t be happier as we have two scales to accommodate both incoming and outgoing trucks, five shipping docks and five tip-hall doors with a wide-open floor plan to ensure an efficient turnaround,” says David Kahn, ReCommunity Beacon plant manager. “We are very pleased with the performance of the state-of-the-art equipment – which successfully passed all acceptance tests with flying colors – and staff here as we focus on safety and producing quality products.”

ReCommunity Beacon employs 30 workers, running one shift, Monday through Friday, five days per week.

Serving metro Atlanta and located in Forsyth County, Georgia, one of the fastest growing areas in the U.S., the brand-new materials recovery facility in Alphretta is the 10th for Advanced Disposal, which operates throughout the Southeast.

The $5 million, 34,000 square-foot facility built by the CP Group will process single-stream materials collected curbside from approximately 100,000 households in the region. The MRF also receives cardboard and other recyclables from commercial sources in the region.

The processing line for the MRF was designed, manufacturing and has a throughput of a dozen tons per hour, at capacity.

Advanced Disposal estimates that the Alpharetta MRF will process 30,000 tons this year, making it one of the largest in the region. “Most of the product brought in is processed and baled the same day, and shipped off within days after being delivered to the recycling facility,” according to Katrine Strickland, marketing manager for the company.

Around 60 percent of the material processed by the MRF is fiber, with the difference comprised of commingled containers and other materials. Plastic bags are the biggest issue facing the facility, as it is for most MRFs.

The Advanced Disposal Recycling facility runs two shifts, five days per week, employing 44people.

Casella Opens Zero-Sort Facility, Built by CP Manufacturing

Community Support and Education Increases Recycling Rates

March 26, 2012

CP Manufacturing, San Diego, CA, installed a new Zero-Sort Facility for Casella in Rutland, Vermont. The 30,000TPY Zero-Sort Facility is now in full operation. The new facility is expected to drive improved recycling rates in the surrounding communities of Vermont, as well as from Glen Falls, NY, all the way south to Concord, New Hampshire.

Zero-Sort, Casella’s brand of single stream recycling, was trademarked in 2008. It simplifies the recycling process by using an all-in-one bin. The purpose of it is to educate customers by helping them understand the recycling process as a whole- what happens to their recyclables, how recyclables are processed, and what it becomes after being recycled. Many of Casella’s MRFs have education rooms on site for visitors to see and understand how the system works and the purpose.

The 57,000 square-foot Zero-Sort Rutland facility started as a 7,800TPY dual-stream system.

“We chose CP based on the concept, equipment durability, technology along with the design partnership. We are very pleased with the overall performance of the new equipment,” says Bob Cappadona, VP of Casella Recycling. CP and Casella collaborated and came up with the system design together.

CP Manufacturing built and installed the triple-deck OCCScreen, two NEWScreens, a Glass Breaker Screen, Magnetic Separators and three sorting lines. Recyclables that are processed in the facility include mixed paper, cardboard (OCC), cartons, plastic, glass, ferrous and non-ferrous metals.

“An integral part of Casella’s Zero-Sort program is the ability to produce a high-quality commodity- all done through the beginning stages of design, technology and MRF management expertise,” says Cappadona.

Casella is a fully integrated company that owns and operates material recovery facilities, landfills, and offers hauling services.  Casella also harvests methane gas from its landfills as a way to produce power.

CP Manufacturing is a division of the CP Group. The CP Group designs, manufactures and installs material recovery facilities for single stream recycling, municipal solid waste, waste to energy, green waste and e-waste internationally.
