Commercial Waste Recycling System Increases OCC Recovery Rate

OCC-Recycling-at-Commercial-Waste-Recycling-SystemA commercial waste recycling system was designed to improve the recovery rate of OCC, or Old Corrugated Cardboard, at a transfer station. The owner was recovering OCC cardboard from a tipping floor processing mixed loads of commercial waste. Recovery of the OCC was a slow and dangerous process with sorters on the tipping floor.

A 250 yard per hour recycling system with vibratory screen was installed to improve the recovery rate of recyclable materials in the mixed waste stream.

  • Material is loaded onto an inclined conveyor to elevate and discharge waste onto a vibratory screen.
  • The oversized material is then metered onto the 72″ wide sorting belt (picking belt or sorting station).
  • Sorters pull out the OCC, metal cans, aluminum cans, PET, HDPE, and mixed paper.
  • The remaining residuals discharge off the end and are loaded into the haul trucks for landfill disposal.
  • If loads with a high volume of OCC and minimal contaminants were loaded into the system, the OCC would be negative sorted and loaded into the baler infeed conveyor.
