“It was time to upgrade our manual sort line to a more automated process. With Green Machine’s optical sorters, we’ve significantly increased our throughput and are producing #58 sorted clean news and #37 sorted office grades with minimal post-sorting. Not only are we impressed with their product, they worked with us to integrate our existing equipment and built a unique system that perfectly fits our needs.”

“We were operating at promised production rates within one week of commissioning on schedule. The Green Machine® system started up with very few hiccups. We are now accepting both municipal and private hauler collected single-stream and industrial and commercial waste.”

Donnie Hopp
MRF Manager, McLeod County

“We have been continually impressed with Green Machine® especially the post-installation support. Green Machine® built a great system while helping us through the start-up process. Any operational issues were quickly addressed and corrected as we worked our way through start-up and into full operation.”

Will Flower
President, Green Stream Recycling

“We were skeptical moving to single-stream, we had heard of all the problems other single-stream plants were having making clean end product. Our Green Machine® system, however, produces as clean a product as our former dual-stream system.”

Bob Taylor
Co-Owner, Southern Tier Recycling and Taylor Garbage Service

“The new technology from Green Machine® makes it possible to recover even greater amounts of recyclables from the waste stream, resulting in higher rates of recycling and less trash to ship to distant landfills. With these system upgrades, we are confident that we will remain the number one recycler on Long Island, as we work to preserve and protect our environment in a cost-effective and environmentally sound manner.”
