MRFs (Material Recovery Facilities)
MRFs are specialized plants where source-segregated dry solid waste from residential and commercial sources is processed and separated using manual and / or mechanical methods. The recovered materials include paper, glass, plastics, metals, textiles, electronics which are sorted into their respective categories, baled, shredded, crushed, compacted, or otherwise prepared for shipment to market. They are eventually sold to recycling or manufacturing firms. The remaining residual / material that cannot be segregated for recycling purposes can be sent to nearby cement plants, or a waste-to-energy unit for use as fuel.CBEPLis handling 205 TPD MRF facilities across India.
