Faced with labor shortages and increased demand for product purity, single stream recyclers throughout North America are calling on the Sparta team of experts to retrofit their systems with increased automation.  This commonly includes Sparta adding and upgrading optical sorters, eddy current separators, robots, and more to their existing single stream MRFs.   


Sparta single stream system upgrades also commonly including upgrading/upsizing of Self-Cleaning OCC screens, ballistic separators, glass breaker screens, film vacuum systems, balers, etc. 

The Sparta team modernizes single stream systems, by providing fully integrated system upgrades featuring increased automation, from engineering through installation.

The engineering-deep Sparta team designs and integrates the increased automation system solution, manufactures the associated conveyors and steel package items, ties in all associated controls, removes equipment no longer needed, and installs these system upgrade packages with its own install team.   


When it comes to designing, manufacturing, integrating, & installing residential and commercial single stream systems and upgrades, Sparta works closely with your team to optimize your recycling solution. 


Sparta manufactures all conveyors, steel package, and select screening and separation equipment, and integrates the best-fit equipment/technology from the industry.  Our goals and yours are completely aligned, as results will show! 


Sparta’s single stream plants commonly feature: bag openers, pre-sort lines, combo belt feeders, Self Cleaning OCC Screens, glass breaker screens, container storage silos, pneumatic conveyors, polishing screens, magnets, eddy current separators, NIR optical sorters, robots, balers, and more… 


MSW process and transfer remains a vibrant industry sector, particularly with the increase of shipping waste by rail.   For these customers, Sparta commonly provides combo belt baler feed conveyors, MSW balers, bale wrapping systems, etc., typically fed by a Sparta-integrated shredder with metals recovery system. 


For MSW processors seeking to separate organics and select streams for AD composting, digesting, or gasification, Sparta provides comprehensive MSW processing/recycling systems, involving shredding, bag-opening, feeding, screening, air separation, optical sorting, eddy currents, magnets and more. 


And as part of Sparta’s trademark design philosophy, Sparta integrates best-fit third-party equipment/technologies along with its in-house manufactured conveyors, steel package, controls, screens, density separation equipment…  


Sparta’s MSW systems involve a range of low speed shredders, bag openers/breakers, trommels, glass breaker screens,density separators, magnets, eddy current separators, NIR optical sorters, balers, cross-wrappers, and more. 


As our recycling customers have increasingly diversified into more specialized waste streams, so too has Sparta. One such stream is mixed plastics, where the goal of these PRF’s is to further refine the separation and grading of preliminarily pre-processed plastics.  


These Sparta plastics recycling systems typically share similar equipment/ technologies utilized in its single stream systems, but tend to be more highly automated, with extensive utilization of NIR optical sorters as well as robots.  


Plastics recyclers find the Sparta engineering & operations teams highly collaborative and accommodating to help transform their vision and goals, into a processing reality and success. 


Sparta’s plastics recycling systems commonly feature bag openers, combo belt feeders,  density separators,  multiple NIR optical sorters,  robots, balers,  storage silos,  pneumatic conveying, and more. 

Featured Project – Pioneer



With labor increasingly difficult to find, higher product purity requirements and increased production demands on the rise, the Pioneer team decided to upgrade its optical sorters in its single stream systems. Pioneer turned to Sparta for the challenge of developing the best fit solution, which included integrating new stateoftheart optical sorters and associated equipment into its existing systems. 


With deep operationally oriented engineering resources and experience, Sparta’s first project with Pioneer upgraded its older single eject NIR to a technologically cutting edge 112” wide dual eject NIR, enabling Pioneer to efficiently eject both OCC and mixed 3D recyclables from its mixed paper line, routing its pass fraction to its ONP QC sort line.  Sparta is highly accustomed to working in tight spots and figuring out how to optimally position new equipment and conveyors into systems not originally designed for them. 


Stay tuned for the full story and photos of this Pioneer system upgrade and more.
