MRF Innovations and Collaborative Financing Models to Strengthen Recycling Infrastructure

Breakers H-I

MRFs across the country are innovating operations. Learn from the first city in Indiana to deploy an AI-guided robotic sorting system in a single-stream recycling facility, made possible through an investment by both public and private entities. This investment increased the volume of high-quality resin available for new packaging based on material recycled locally and extended the lifecycle of plastics. Gain perspective on how technology and collaborative partnerships like these help strengthen recycling infrastructure, and how this model can be replicated in your community.
