About Us

We are passionate about changing the way companies look at their waste streams. Many customers don’t realize the economic value locked up in their multi-media waste – value only MFR can unlock.  We perform our patented centrifuge process onsite at your location, separating industrial waste into liquids and solids. Management of the separate liquid and solid streams is more economical and sustainable and results in significant waste, liability, and cost reductions.  

Our customers enter a circular economy when we enable their manufacturing byproducts to be reused – either by them or by another company. Our services help them achieve sustainability goals like reducing carbon emissions and materials placed in a landfill, and increasing recycling and beneficial reuse.  We have converted much of our customer’s waste into revenue streams resulting in a significant reduction in overall costs for them.

Our senior management team has 40 years of experience in the waste industry. From the beginning, our focus has been on finding sustainable solutions for waste management. We take great pride in providing innovative and efficient alternatives to traditional waste disposal.
