Individuals and businesses may take their recycling to local recycling centres, but if they carry out a lot of recycling, they may choose to invest in their own recycling equipment specially designed for paper, cardboard, plastic or metal recycling.
Metal recycling can be very lucrative and many people will collect scrap metal to process through metal recycling equipment which they will then sell on for a profit. Metal recycling equipment needs to offer exceptional performance, longevity and be great value for money for customers to be prepared to invest in their own equipment.
The range of recycling machinery for metal products includes:
- metal shears.
- high speed balers.
- combined metal shear and balers.
- light iron auto-balers.
- alligator shears.
- non-ferrous balers.
Recycling equipment is typically designed to be compact and easy to use, and for safety reasons many metal recycle machines will be operated via remote control. Mobile and portable shearers and balers are ideal for users who need to be able to move their metal recycle equipment around with for use in different locations.
