The following US recycling systems companies are believed to supply recycling equipment to the US, and other countries internationally for use in MRFs (Materials Recovery Facilities) and Energy Recovery Facilities (incinerators).

List of MRFs municipal and commercial materials recovery facilities in operation for Recycling Systems Companies.The Waster was asked to provide a list of recycling equipment companies recently, by a waste management professional, wishing to obtain quotes for installing a MRF. He was starting out on his task of identifying suitable MRF facility equipment suppliers and said he could not find a straight list which was reasonably comprehensive and up to date.
