Brookhaven's Materials Recycling Facility (MRF) is a complex, automated, system that seperates glass, paper, corrugated cardboard, plastics and metals from a mixed waste stream and bales each item for market. The MRF can process up to 300 tons of recyclable material per day. All items collected curbside for recycling in Brookhaven are marketed. Tours of the MRF can be arranged by calling 451-TOWN (8696).
