The Green Recycling Solutions facility is 32,000 square feet, and is associated with a nearby landfill. They also do work with other companies, and can even help towards LEED Certification. As stated on their website, “By focusing on environmental techniques and the well-being of our community, we are striving to attain zero percent waste sent to landfills.”

 

Together, the three pieces of equipment form an energy-efficient vibratory action to help separate and remove heavy materials (stones, metallics, glass) from lightweight materials (aluminum, paper, plastics, wood).

 

The Dual Knife DE-STONER® Air Classifier is a completely dry system, eliminating the need for water supply and other “wet system” problems. This piece of equipment uses two air knifes to separate the heavy and lightweight materials. An added bonus is that it has a jam-proof design with no moving separator parts.

 

The FINGER-SCREEN™, a GK patent, classifies and sorts MSW, C&D, and other recycling materials. It does so using full-flow cascading decks with rugged tapered fingers.
