Multi-million dollar plant for Friedman Recycling

United States – Friedman Recycling has unveiled a new US$ 21 million facility in Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA. The 90 000 square-foot, single-stream materials recovery plant was designed by Bulk Handling Systems and was established to cater to the region’s residential recycling.

Sitting on a 12.5-acre site, the plant has the capacity to process around 120 000 tons of recycled materials per year, or some 30 tons per hour. According to company president Morris Friedman, it is equipped with new screening, air and optical sorting technology to enable it to process ‘all types of plastics’. Friedman also points out that the new facility will separate out recycled PET and high-density polyethylene, and will also sell mixed rigid plastics.

Having struck a 12-year contract with the city of Albuquerque, the recycler will serve an estimated 177 000 residents. The new facility will also handle commercial and industrial recycling, offering a pick-up service to those customers.
