Marion Resource Recovery Facility

Marion Resource Recovery Facility opened its current location in 1989, and completed a total renovation of its complex in 2000.  The MRRF accepts loads of dry waste; primarily construction, demolition, and retail waste; and use a combination of mechanical and human sorting to recover recyclable materials from the waste stream before it is transported for disposal.  Recoverable Cardboard, Concrete, Metal, Sheetrock & Wood are loaded into semi-trailers for transport to various recycling processors and markets.  The haulers also use the facility reload residential mixed recycling and yard waste/mixed organics, both of which are then hauled to facilities that process them for market.
