Midwest Fiber Opens Central Illinois’ First Single Stream Recycling Facility

September 19, 2011

Midwest Fiber, a locally owned, full-service recycler has opened the first single stream recycling facility in central Illinois at their Normal location.  For the local communities that allow all recyclables to be placed in a single bin without sorting, this means that they do not have to be transported to a larger city before sorting them.  For the city of Peoria residents who have recycling picked up through PDC, their recycling is now taken to Midwest Fiber’s transfer station in Mossville before being taken to the new facility in Normal.  Here are some quick facts provided by Midwest Fiber:

  • They have 26 New Full-time Employees and plan to add an estimated 20 additional full time employees within 3 years.
  • They employ 56 full time employees in Bloomington/Normal
  • Midwest Fiber currently processes 9,000,000 pounds of recyclable material per month at the Bloomington/Normal operation.
  • They ship out 225 semi-loads per month of recyclable materials.
  • Midwest Fiber has 20 years of experience processing recyclables and operates in Normal, Decatur, Peoria, and Springfield.
