Rumpke facility rises from the ashes

United States – US-based Rumpke Consolidated Companies Inc. has been awarded US$ 32 million in funds by the Ohio Air Quality Development Authority so it can establish a new recycling plant in Cincinnati.

The 84 000-square-foot recycling plant will replace the Rumpke facility that was damaged in a fire in 2012. It will employ around 110 workers and process residential and commercial materials through a dual infeed system. On an hourly basis, the plant will treat 55 tonnes of residential material and 20 tonnes of commercial.

The new facility will incorporate six optical scanners for sorting fibre and containers, two eddy current separators for aluminium, an electromagnet for ferrous scrap and an extensive mixed-glass removal system.

Rumpke expects to complete the construction project by October 2013.
