New Single Stream Recycling center opens in New York
A state of the art Single Stream recycling center is poised to open for business in the growing Southern Tier of New York. A local family owned waste company Taylor Garbage Service Inc., and their subsidiary company, Southern Tier Recyclers, have come together to create the new facility which will be operated by Southern Tier Recyclers. The 30,000 square foot Single Stream recycling facility will be operational in September 2012.
The facility includes both mechanized and hand sorting for maximized material recovery from the waste stream. The specialized sorting and identification equipment created by Green Machine, Inc., a leader in the field of customized single stream processing systems, allows the plant to process up to 25 tons an hour of mixed recyclable materials. The advent of this facility will allow for expansion into new territories and the opportunity to bring recycling to areas that do not currently enjoy a recycling program of any kind.
The Taylor family was instrumental in bringing recycling to the Southern Tier of N.Y and aided Tioga County and other local counties in creating a thriving recycling program that has been a benefit to the local economy and ecology.
Recycling has always been of great importance to the Taylor family and the local community.
The company anticipates at least a 20 to 30% increase in participation with the switch over to a fully no sort curbside pickup of recycling. A great asset to an area that already enjoys one of the best recycling programs in the US. The ease of the process for the customer at the curb, who will no longer have to sort the material and can put all recyclables in one container, will encourage even more people to take part in the program.
Taylor Garbage Service, Inc. is continuing their mission to make Broome and Tioga Counties a greener place to be by offering schools, businesses, and municipalities education and information about the great importance recycling plays in our future and how they can create or improve their own recycling programs.
Taylor Garbage Service, Inc offices are located at 3051 Old Vestal Rd. in Vestal, NY and Southern Tier Recycling operates a facility at 352 Glenmary Dr. in Owego, NY. In addition Taylor Garbage also operates 2 garbage transfer stations in Tioga County, NY. The new facility is located at 5730 State Route 434 Apalachin, NY 13732.
