BRE uses single stream sorting technology comprised of various mechanized screens, magnets, optical sorting, and other technologies to separate commingled materials collected from municipalities. Studies support that commingled collection has dramatically increased recycling participation where it has been implemented.

The advantages of single stream:
  • The reduction in collection costs
  • Increased efficiency in the sorting process
  • Increased participation
  • Efficiency reduces the dependence on landfills. Our state-of-the-art, "single-stream" recycling system can handle a range of materials - newspaper, cardboard, cans, bottles, milk jugs, cottage cheese containers, pizza boxes and even pots and pans.
