C&D recycler opens facility in Florida

Marpan Recycling opened at the end of May in Tallahassee, Florida. The new facility is expected to lower landfill use by construction and demolition companies in the region.

Marpan estimates that 70 percent of all material brought to the facility will be recycled.

The owner, Kim Williams, said they put an estimated 2,000 tons through the facility during a 3-week testing run to fine-tune the system. The processing capacity is expected to be about 500 tons per day.

Marpan's facility is located on Woodville Highway in Tallahassee and can process a range of material types including steel, aluminum, glass, plastics, wood and various other building materials.
