Materials Recovery Facilities (MRFs)

At BHS, we don’t just sell equipment.  We treat our customers like partners and design solutions tailored to maximize their profits.

Decades of experience building processing systems for various types of material streams have provided us with the expertise necessary to solve any challenge.  From the first Single Stream recycling system in the U.S. to today’s largest and most complex sorting facilities, we set the standard in MRF technology.  Durable, high performance equipment matched with our innovative, talented people mean we’re ready to work for you and your business today and into the future.


Keeping you ahead of the stream.

BHS developed the first single stream processing system in the U.S., and we’ve been setting the standard for performance and reliability ever since. When you demand the highest quality equipment optimized for your profitability, there is no equal.


We dig deeper into the waste stream.

It’s a new world for MSW where diversion targets continue to grow to unprecedented levels.  BHS leads the way with the first recovery system in the industry to keep 70% of waste out of the landfill, capturing 90%-99% of high value commodities like PET plastics — on the first pass. With numbers like these, you are guaranteed to stay ahead of your competition.


Automated sorting of a most challenging material.

Cutting through the massive, mixed clutter of Construction and Demolition (C&D) waste requires ingenuity that’s always mindful of the bottom line. Efficient recovery of these materials could mean the difference between red and black ink. Whether you’re looking for a simple manual sort line or highly automated sorting, BHS has a solution for you.


Adding up to zero.

The next logical step in waste recovery is harnessing these materials for their inherent energy value.  Our patented sorting process can be customized to extract high-caloric value RDF and organics for anaerobic digestion.  Regardless of your conversion technology, we have the experience to make your project a success.


Setting the standard for speed, accuracy, and reliability in optical sorting.

NRT Optical Sorters are integral to our material processing systems, providing our customers with state-of-the-art, high-speed infrared detection and precise color sorting capabilities. These systems sort plastics and other valuable commodities at industry leading efficiency and purity rates.
