Custodial Staff Tour a Recycling Materials Recovery Facility

Custodial staff toured a local Materials Recovery Facility to see how recyclables are processed.

The outing took the group to different areas within the plant that included the receiving area, the tipping floor and sorting machines. The group observed various sizes of sorting discs for cardboard, paper and other materials, the magnet and eddy current for aluminum and steel products, the optical plastic sorter, the glass pulverizing machine and the final baled product for manufacture use.

The tour was coordinated by University Facilities Management’s Custodial Services and the Office of Sustainability.

UFM custodial staffers included Brandon Alexander, Susie Fletcher, Sabra Lloyd, Tina McLeary, Derek Nordhoff, Mark Semenko, John Spence, Richard Steele and Robert Taylor.
