Material Recovery Facilities are important factories that are used to separate recyclable and non-recyclable materials. They work in conjunction with your waste handling systems to reduce industrial waste generated by your factories and, inadvertently, end up opening a secondary revenue stream.
Unfortunately, Material Recycling Facilities are often seen as a chore as making them profitable enough for huge investments is a complicated task. Furthermore, most MRFs function at astonishingly low operational efficiencies. This, alone, is enough to turn away people from setting up an MRF as they prefer not to investigate ways in which the efficiency of their MRF can be improved. Read more
At the heart of any industry, you’ll find steel belt conveyors that are tasked with taking materials from one place in the factory to another. These conveyor belts are amazing as they can transport even the heaviest of items without any problems.
That being said, conveyor belts do tend to wear out over the years. As such, it’s up to the industry owner to schedule preventive and predictive maintenance cycles at the optimum time so as to ensure that these belts can function without faltering. Read more
The effects of human activity and industrial waste on the environment have been profound. As a result, there are many regulations in place that dictate how companies need to dispose industrial waste so as to minimize adverse effects on the environment. Unfortunately, waste management systems costs a pretty penny which makes it the bane of the existence of many a firm. Read more
Balers are extremely efficient machines for processing waste. As amazing as balers are, they’re prone to wear and tear and tend to break down over time. This is where a baler serviceperson comes into the picture. The right serviceperson can not only fix your machine but they can do so in a few minutes (thereby minimizing down time). Read more
All business avenues, from the local grocery store to giant multi-nationals that have multiple factories across different countries, rely on balers for waste management. Simply put, these machines are one of the most important recycling equipment as they simplify waste disposal. Read more
Recycling remains an issue, despite the fact that 35% of waste in the U.S. is being recycled. EPA estimates that 75% of the waste can be recycled and if that were the case, the U.S. would create 1.5 million new jobs.
The environmental benefit would be worthwhile too as recycling 75% of the waste would be equivalent to taking 50 million cars off the road every year. Every hour, Americans throw away 2.5 million plastic bottles, which is an alarming enough. Read more
Despite being two completely different machines invented to serve two completely different purposes, there’s still a lot of confusion about shredders and crushers. We believe this stems from the fact that most online platforms tend to use these terms interchangeably which does nothing but confuse the reader. Read more
Balers are crucially important to the success of any recycling system. Not only do they allow a company to compress a large amount of recyclable materials but they also enable its safer and easier transportation.
A common misconception about balers is that they’re all the same. Granted they may have the same functionality, but different types of balers use different techniques to process waste materials. Read more
Paper shredders play an important role in stopping serious criminal offenses such as identity theft. Even though these machines go a long way in keeping an organization’s secrets, most companies don’t know the first thing about these machines. As a result, they have trouble managing the waste created by paper shredders. Read more
In the scrap and waste management industry, the big question is, how to maximize the value of scrap and the answer isn’t as simple as installing a single machine or as easy as a magic potion. It’s a question that has recycling and scrap management facilities scratching their heads. Read more
