Mazza Recycling Invests $15M into Single Stream Recycling

Tinton Falls-based Mazza Recycling is almost complete with construction of their brand-new single stream recycling facility. As their pledge to invest $15 million into single stream recycling, this facility will serve as their commitment to recover more recyclable material in Monmouth County. The state-of-the-art system will be the first complete positive sorting design on the east coast and is set to open in the summer of 2020. Mazza Recycling believes that it is their ethical and corporate responsibility as a recycling facility to educate local communities on how to recycle, and spread their knowledge to local schools and organizations, in order to sow the seeds for future generations.

In an effort to eliminate waste and decrease the need for eradicating Earth’s natural resources, Mazza has invested in a sorting facility that uses sizing and optical technology to recycle more materials from the stream, and produce quality products that will have consistent movement in an increasingly restrictive global market. By increasing the rate of recycling paper and cardboard, this plant will reduce the need to harvest trees. This system will also reduce the need to use up our planet’s remaining natural oil that is used to manufacturer new plastic products. By investing in this design, Mazza seeks to not only preserve natural resources, but also to extend the life-cycle of plastics, paper, cardboard, and metal containers in a world undergoing an environmental crisis. In addition to promoting sustainability and creating a circular economy, this capital investment will create jobs in our local community inside of this 70,000 square foot Material Recovery Facility.

“Consumers, producers, packers, and manufacturers all have a responsibility to our planet and future generations. If people are misinformed about the proper ways to recycle, then our goal to eliminate waste will not make as large of an impact. We believe that it is important to educate the youth on the importance of recycling and the proper items that can be recycled. By investing in this facility and speaking about it in schools and at local community events, we hope to increase awareness about recycling to people who are not handling their recyclable materials properly,” says Christian Morgan, material recovery facility plant manager.

In addition to the sorting plant installation, Mazza Recycling also plans to launch their Greener Tomorrow Program shortly after the plant opens. This community-wide initiative will educate students, organizations, and residents on the importance of recycling and how to properly recycle. By providing tours of the new plant, and visiting local schools and organizations, Mazza Recycling seeks to serve as a resource for their community. They will facilitate tours and presentations where complex recycling systems are not only explained, but they are taught in an effective, safe, and hands-on manner.
