Atlantic Coast Recycling reopened its recycling processing facility in Passaic, New Jersey, after a year-long redevelopment totaling $47 million. 

The changes enable the 125,000-square-foot plant to process over 50 tons of residential and commercial recyclables per hour. 

The facility primarily uses Bollegraaf equipment, the company told Resource Recycling. It’s a combined dual- and single-stream system with multiple sets of both paper and plastic optical sorters. Those optical sorters use machine learning technology. 

“Its exceptional processing speed enables the production of high-quality finished paper, plastic and metal for domestic and international manufacturers and mills while streamlining the recycling process to save municipalities valuable time and resources,” the company said in a press release. “All recyclables are stored within the enclosed facility for optimal environmental safety.”

Atlantic Coast Recycling provides residential recyclables processing to over 60 municipalities within New Jersey’s Bergen, Essex, Hudson and Passaic counties, serving a population of about 1 million people.

The capital commitment was led by B. Riley Financial and other investors.
