This project supports the installation of a second optical sorter on Hamilton’s container line and re-purposing of their existing optical to improve the capture of high value commodities and reduce process loss. A 2014 MRF efficiency audit (CIF #816.3) recommended the installation to help increase revenue generating potential and reduce residue management costs. The proposed upgrades are expected to achieve a 4.8-year payback.
