Company CEO Tom Hill says firm has been recycling for 30-years. This new system allows for a wider variety of waste material to be recycled at the plant, such as cardboard, paper, aluminum, plastic--- and now, even glass. Hill says the firm can now recycle more items without fear of contamination.

The site already handles 125-tons of recyclables per day. They expect that number to grow to 200-tons in the near future.
