Its MRFs receive, sort, bale and resell recyclable materials originating from the MSW stream, including newsprint, cardboard, office paper, containers and bottles. It operates eight MRFs in geographic areas served by its collection divisions. It disposes of solid waste at its landfills and at its waste-to-energy facility.
