What Is MSW?

Municipal Solid Waste (MSW) is a diverse mixture of items discarded daily, including furniture, appliances, packaging, and general household refuse. In North America, the push for effective MSW recycling is driven by both environmental and economic imperatives. Proper recycling processes, supported by advanced technologies, enable the conversion of waste into valuable resources. This transformation is essential for environmental sustainability and offers significant economic benefits by reducing disposal into landfills.

The move towards a more circular economy in the United States and Canada is underpinned by an evolving regulatory framework that promotes waste reduction and recycling. Advances in recycling technology play a pivotal role in achieving these goals, making it possible to process MSW more efficiently and effectively. As such, embracing these technologies and adhering to regulatory guidelines are vital steps toward responsibly managing our resources and fostering a sustainable future.

What can you Achieve Through MSW Recycling?

MSW processing can be profitable when waste materials are correctly sized, screened, and separated. Whether you’re a small or medium-sized business (SMB), enterprise-level organization, or municipality, Viably will partner with you to optimize production and produce cleaner commodities to increase revenue and maximize landfill diversion.

1. Produce Cleaner Commodities

Adopting advanced recycling equipment technologies in material processing offers Municipal Solid Waste recyclers a significant edge by enhancing the purity and efficiency of processing recyclables like plastics, wood, paper, and cardboard. Innovations like industrial shredders, separators, and screeners not only streamline sorting and separation, reducing operational costs, but also increase the market value of the recyclable commodities.

  • Advanced technologies yield cleaner MSW recyclables, fetching higher market prices
  • Reduced contamination cuts processing time and costs, boosting operational efficiency
  • Improved MSW recycling reduces landfill waste, enhancing environmental sustainability
