Southern Tier Recycling/Taylor Garbage Service located in the upstate New York community of Owego, commissioned its GREEN MACHINE single-stream/commercial dry waste recycling system in September of 2012. Owners Bob Taylor and son Jared had operated a dual-stream recycling plant in Tioga County for years.
“We were skeptical moving to single-stream,” says Bob Taylor. “We had heard all the problems other single-stream plants were having making clean end product. Our Green Machine system, however, produces as clean a product as our former dual stream system.”
Adds Jared Taylor, “I was surprised at how much material our system can push through. We are definitely going to be looking for additional material to feed this system so it can meet its potential.”
John Green, President of Green Machine, comments, “It was a pleasure working with the Taylors again. In 1991 we built their first recycling plant in Broome County, N.Y. Our fabrication plant is only minutes from Bob and Jared’s new recycling plant. This latest 24 tons per hour system design, which showcases our newly designed OCC separation screen, Fiber Screens and Green Eye Optical Sorter, will offer future customers an opportunity to visit both locations in one trip.”
