Eagle River, Wis., not only touts having the World Snowmobile Hall of Fame, they now can lay claim to one of the region’s largest single-stream/commercial recycling processing systems. Alan Albee, owner of Eagle River Waste & Recycling Inc., is the visionary who believed that this rural region could support a 24 tons per hour combination single-stream/commercial waste recycling system. “We believed strongly that Wisconsin and Michigan’s Upper Peninsula residents wanted an opportunity to take part in the country’s recycling efforts,” Albee says. “We have had a tremendously positive response from our region’s residents and have already secured significant tonnage to satisfy our recycling plant’s large appetite.”

Omar Mohamad, Green Machine Sales LLC installation crew chief, says Eagle River is one of the most beautiful areas his installation crew has had the pleasure to work in. He adds, “We know our efforts in building this plant will help preserve the pristine natural beauty of the area.”

John Green, president of Green Machine Sales LLC, says he is very glad to have been selected to build this plant for Eagle Waste & Recycling. “We agree with Alan’s vision that there is a real market for cost-effective, low to medium throughput single-stream recycling systems. We hope that other recyclers will visit Eagle Waste & Recycling to see what Alan and his brother Brian have built and recognize that this is a viable business model, compatible with the needs of many other rural areas of the country.”

Alan Albee comments further, “Green Machines engineers maximized the use of our existing building providing us with a very robust system, which exhibits great multi material handling benefits. We feel that we are now in a position to compete for materials in more populous areas and offer the area an affordable answer to the regions processing needs.”

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.”
