Rumpke Waste and Recycling provides curbside waste collection services and operates landfills and recycling centers across Ohio. AES was selected to provide a plastic bag capture system for their new $32 million MRF in Cincinnati. Plastic bags in the waste stream reduce the value of recyclables, clog process machinery and pose a danger to workers tasked with removing tangled bags from the equipment.
AES provided a turnkey equipment and installation package with professional project management. Our custom-designed bag capture system allows the operators to remove plastic bags at multiple points along the pre-sort conveyors and send them up through the hoods. This is where they are whisked away via the air conveyance system to the AirShark™, our own ultra-heavy-duty rotary material separator. The AirShark™ system helps Rumpke produce cleaner, higher-value recyclables in a safer, more efficient work environment.
AES provided a turnkey equipment and installation package with professional project management. Our scope of work included project design and engineering, equipment selection and integration, rigging and installation, structural steel fabrication and erection, and system start-up, commissioning, and training.
