Recycling Equipment Terms

Recycling was created to help find a solution for reusing the human trash and waste that is being thrown away. Recycling is the process where a waste material, such as paper trash, is turned into a new item, such as recycled paper or cardboard. It is an environmentally-friendly business that cuts down on human waste and pollution. The actual process of recycling requires several different industrial machines. Popular types of equipment terms are listed below.

  • Sorting Bins – While technically not machines, these bins are essential to recycling processes because they divide up the items being recycled. Plastic is kept with plastic, paper is kept with paper and so on. These are useful for organizing purposes and a necessary step before using shredders or compactors.
  • Conveyor – A machine that in recycling processes is often used to dispose of the materials into a shredder, compactor or baler. The materials are moved along a conveyor belt into the opening of the machine. Many centers, especially those that use large amounts of cans, have a magnetic separator conveyor which is a nice solution for sorting out steel from aluminum cans
  • Shredder – As its name suggests, this machine shreds items. There are different kinds this equipment, such as smaller paper shredders and large industrial scrap metal shredders capable of tearing and ripping metal parts.
  • Compactor – A large machine that crushes the recyclable material placed inside it into compacted trash.. Compactors are often used for scrap metal and corrugated aluminum.
  • Baler – A traditional piece of farm equipment, these are used in recycling for baling metals, paper cardboard and plastics into compact bales for shipping purposes. They are similar to compactors, except that they compress the material from four directions, while a compactor only compresses it from two.

    More businesses are saving money, and even generating added revenue, with the implementation of meaningful recycling programs. Most businesses are generating far more refuse than their managers would imagine, and with a little help of added recycling equipment and services, many types of businesses can realize measurable gains in the bottom line through smart waste management. During a time when every business wants to be a responsible, engaged member of the community, recycling can generate priceless good will and reduce the amount of waste going into the environment. Industrial businesses produce all sorts of recyclable materials from scrap metal to cardboard. Even corrugated aluminum can be compacted, baled, and recycled. Paper can be shredded and recycled. Computer equipment in almost any condition can be recycled and the components reused as a solution to efficiently manufacture new equipment. Almost any kind of waste a business produces is likely to be able to be handled through one recycling service or another. Recycling services are usually the first step a business will take when instituting a recycling program. Often, these services will make scheduled pick-ups of recyclable materials like plastic, paper, cardboard or other trash. These services rely on the business to sort the recyclable materials and put them into separate bins. Then the recycling service takes it and runs the refuse through their equipment, up a conveyor belt, into a compact and crush it for processing. Sometimes, the waste is just put into a baler so it can be weighed, measured and transported. There are certainly financial incentives for a business to dispose of reusable materials through a recycling program and smart waste management. Research and investment, allow businesses to look for waste management and recycling solutions that not only could potentially generate added revenue, but perhaps, good in the community.
