Dane CountyCustomer Story
Dane County Department of Waste & Renewables transformed their transfer station into a state of the art C&D recycling facility. To provide engineering, manufacturing, integration, installation, and commissioning of their turnkey C&D system, Dane County tapped Sparta, a leading recycling system supplier.
In an innovative public/private partnership, Dane Country contracted with Landfill Reduction And Recycling, Inc., an experienced WI-based C&D waste management recycling company, to operate the County’s C&D MRF for the next ten years.
Sparta integrated into its Dane County system, GK’s FINGER-SCREEN™ and DE-STONER® Air Classifier / Density Separator, to screen and separate the various recyclables in this system. Sparta provided the system engineering, controls, and installation; and manufactured all conveyors, sort lines, and steelworks package.
‘This synergistic relationship suited all parties involved, and played to the strengths and interests of Sparta and GK,’ commented Howard Fiedler, Vice President of Sales for Sparta Manufacturing, based in New Brunswick, Canada.
This dual-line Sparta C&D recycling system was sized and configured to optimize Dane County’s building, and to maximize product recovery from its 350 tons per day of C&D.
We’ve been overly impressed with the Sparta team, and all of the forethought and experience that they put into our C&D system. We clearly benefited from the experience that they’ve gained from other projects throughout North America, and then implemented into the Dane County C&D system design. It really helps keep our system running and doing all that it needs to do.

By splitting the flows onto 2 processing lines, sorters on the A Line are able to efficiently pick the desired commodities. Special tipping hoppers behind sorters enable them to additionally pick copper, wire, and AL. This allows the ’B’ Line to mechanically capture the 2″-8″ metals and aggregates, with QC/sort lines after air classification for quality control.
Sparta supplied a PLC-based electrical control panel with Allen Bradley HMI display. This HMI touch-screen is remotely located in an operator tower so that operator can see the whole system while operating; with ability for Sparta techs to remotely access if needed.
The Dane County C&D Recycling MRF has been operational since January 2016, and has seen substantial volume increases due to its increased ability to efficiently handle it.
