SSWI is currently seeking proposals for design-install of a new cleaning system to remove compost from aluminum to be recycled.
SSWI operates a 350 ton per day co-composting facility. All waste is processed to create compost from the organic fraction. The remainder material is film plastic, glass, plastics, tin and aluminum. These inorganics will be taken to a residual recycling system to be sorted for recycling.
Once the materials are sorted, the recyclables need to be processed through a cleaning system to increase the commodities' values for recycling.
This project is in part funded through a grant by the State of Tennessee. The successful proposer must be in compliance with Title VI.
SSWI will receive proposals until 10:00 am, Friday, July 14, 2017, where they will be publicly opened in the office of Sevier Solid Waste. For the complete RFP and Instructions, please click here.
