Plant recovering 86% of C&D waste in Florida | The Future of Waste | Scoop.it

R3 Recycling, located at a landfill in Florida, is sorting construction and demolition (C&D) waste for recycling. When R3 Recycling commenced 4 years ago, the goal was to get to 75% recovery by 2020. They are currently recycling 86%, handling 35,000 tons per year.

 

The success depends on improved processing techniques and finding new markets for recyclable products.

World first robotic recycling system to be introduced | The Future of Waste | Scoop.it

It was only a matter of time before somebody introduced a robotic recycling system. Developed by ZenRobotics (http://www.zenrobotics.com), the robot is claimed to provide enhanced sorting capabilities and replaces hand-picking at Materials Recovery Facilities.

 

The robot will be installed in February 2013. No doubt we will hear more about its success or otherwise.
