Cost Effective Waste Management and Recycling Services

By Felipe Bazon

Recycling commences at the waste disposal level with segregation and containment of individual waste streams. Segregation, containment, transportation and processing of waste streams are parts of waste management services. Each part of the waste management and recycling process requires adequate equipments to optimise the whole process making it even more profitable.

Segregation should start at the source with the use of recycling containers like for instance recycling bins or if you prefer segregated bins. Recycling containers range from the ordinary office recycling bins to rigid containers for warehouse or even specially designed containers for the containment of hazardous and clinical waste streams. Such containers facilitate the movement of waste to external containers or waste handling equipment.

There are certain production processes that don't allow the waste to be segregated on-site. It is the job of the waste management company to provide containers for the containment of mixed recyclables and arrange for the wastes to be segregated off-site.

With commercial and industrial waste management and recycling services it is impossible to have a one-size-fits-all scheme due to numerous reasons which could clearly be the subject of another article. The ideal waste management provider should provide a tailor made service that minimises cost, increase recycling, eliminate waste to landfill wherever possible and maximise costs.

Waste audits are an important part of the process as they examine the whole production process and identify areas where cost savings can be made by the implementation of eco-friendly initiatives that rationalises and increases recycling levels.

These audits are conducted with the purpose of understanding each business process such as:

  • Types of waste

  • Volume of waste

  • Procedures of waste segregation and handling (if any)

  • Utilisation of recycling containers (if any)

  • Utilisation of waste handling equipment (if any)

  • Current service levels and service scheduling

  • Volume of recycling

  • Overall current waste management costs

Based on these findings waste management companies can tailor their services accordingly to each organisation.

To make the whole process even more profitable organisations can handle their own waste on-site by using adequate equipment like Balers, Compactors, Shredders, roll-packers, drum or can crushers, etch. These equipments can process recyclable waste materials in a resalable format turning a cost into revenue.

Among the most used waste handling equipments are Balers, Compactors and Can crushers.

Balers are compactors that can produce bales of 25kg to 650kg in weight and are one of the most cost effective equipments an organisation could own. Because they can cater for a wide range of recyclable waste materials including cardboard and plastic.

Compactors are very similar to balers are they can compact waste streams from ratios of 4:1 to 10:1 dependent upon the compaction force and type of wastes being compacted.

Can crushers also know as drum crushers are designed to reduce metal waste to a fraction of their original size reducing costs with disposal.

To sum things up to verify the quality and standard of waste management and recycling procedures companies should have their processes and procedures in accordance with ISO 9001 and 14001 accreditation and other quality management bodies.

Scrap Metal Recycling Processing

Recycling scrap metal can be a lucrative business, but it does require you to be incredibly efficient. If you cannot sort, package, and prepare a good amount of scrap metal for recycling on a daily basis, you may find that the returns simply do not justify the amount of time it takes.

That’s where Green Machine’s scrap metal recycling processing system changes the game. This system is durable, safe, cost effective, and incredibly efficient at preparing scrap metal for recycling. Most people accept the rule of thumb that you need to produce one full container of scrap metal every ten minutes in order to be truly efficient. This scrap metal recycling equipment easily meets that goal.

How it Works

Our scrap metal recycling processing equipment includes a number of conveyors and feeders along with an optical scanner to sort the various types of scrap metal. Once sorted by the scanner, each type of scrap metal is sorted and then put through an auto shredder before being sent to a container. The system can even package up the scrap for transport.

How You Benefit from a Scrap Metal Recycling Processing System

There are many benefits to using one of these systems:
  • It’s much safer than sorting by hand. Scrap metal can have very sharp edges that can cause injuries, even if the sorters are wearing heavy duty gloves.

  • The sorting equipment runs automatically and needs very little human input.

  • There’s very little downtime. A scrap metal recycling system will continue working as long as you have scrap to feed it.

  • It easily removes metal that is of very little value and items that are not metal at all.

If you’d like to know more about the Green Machine scrap metal recycling processing system, you can contact us today or plan a visit to our testing facility.

Plastics Sorting Processing

A Plastics Recovery Facility (PRF) simplifies the plastics sorting processing by using an optical scanner to sort mixed plastics according to their polymer grade. Sorting mixed plastics is a challenge, even for the most experienced team. It’s more difficult than sorting mixed recyclables because it’s more difficult to easily identify the different types of plastic.

Why Sort Plastics at all?

The problem with recycling mixed plastics comes from the problem of melting plastics together. Some different types separate during the process. This creates different layers in the new plastic materials. These layers aren’t as strong, limiting the use of the recycled plastic. Then there’s the issue of the various filler and dyes that are added to a number of plastics. There are processes that can remove these dyes, but the more affordable ones would damage the polymer blend created when plastics are melted together.

How Does this Plastics Recycling System Work?

The Green Machine plastics recycling system works by using a series of conveyor belts, bins, and an optical scanner to identify and sort each type of plastic. The mixed plastics are dumped onto the intake belt, where they pass through a scanner. This scanner identifies the type of plastic, whether or not it’s dyed, it’s condition (clean verses unclean), and sorts it as directed.

The Benefits of Using this System

Making use of this plastics recycling equipment has a number of benefits:
  • Simplify and speed up the process of dividing mixed plastics.

  • Remove low value plastics to make recycling plastics more profitable.

  • No need for a person to search each plastic item for the recycling symbol and number that indicates the type of plastic.

  • Everything is automated. Once the system is powered up, it doesn’t need much supervision.

  • The plastics recovery equipment requires very little maintenance and can run around the clock if needed.

Single Stream Recycling – A Mixed Recyclables System

One of the biggest issues with collecting recyclables is that they must be sorted. This drives up collection costs and is one of the main reasons many people do not recycle. It’s simply too time-consuming to separate news print, cardboard, office paper, tin, aluminum, glass, and plastic into individual containers. In order to eliminate the need to sort recyclables before they are collecting, Green Machine® has refined the most efficient method of recycling: Single Stream Recycling.

The Green Machine® Single Stream Recycling system uses state of the art technology to automatically separate the recyclables, removing the need for this to be done manually. Recyclables are first placed into large metering bins that hold huge amount of items. They are fed into a presort line that removes all of the plastic bags via a system of pneumatic collection tubes. Large ridged plastic items and other large pieces that cannot pass through the single stream recycling equipment are also removed.

The next step in the Single Stream Recycle process is OCC Screening. Here, bulky cardboard is removed first. Next, the system uses glass breaker screens to filter out glass. Finally, fibers are automatically separated from containers as the materials are passed over News and Polishing Screens.

What makes the Single Stream Recycling system so effective is that it makes use of a number of different methods to sort materials. Magnets, optical container sorters, aluminum eddy current systems, and ballistic air separators are all utilized to quickly separate the various recyclables. Once sorted and cleaned, similar recyclables are baled into compacted cubes or placed into shipping containers to be shipped to domestic or overseas markets.

The patent-pending system created by Green Machine® is unparalleled in the area of mixed recyclables. The company’s dedication to building the recycling industry’s most durable and efficient equipment for the lowest upfront capital expense can be seen once again in the technology developed for the Single Stream Recycling equipment.
