Go Pro Disposal features an on-site Materials Recovery Facility or MRF (pronounced “murf”) recycling facility.
A MRF is a specialized plant that receives, separates and prepares recyclable materials for marketing to end-user manufacturers. After sorting, goods are then prepared for manufacturers, who will be able to use them in future production.
How a MRF Impacts the Environment
By providing manufacturers with recycled production materials, less mining and synthetic production of those materials will be required. As a result, industry will produce fewer greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from manufacturing and transportation and consume fewer natural resources. This process still produces more emissions than the simple practice of reducing and reusing of goods but is the best option when goods are no longer reusable. Additionally, keeping products such as paper out of the landfill also reduces GHGs.
