About us

We engineer, we manufacture, we deliver... worldwide

Bollegraaf's delivery programme consists of complete sorting systems for the waste paper industry and plastics recycling, for collectors of industrial waste and household waste, for municipalities and for companies that produce voluminous waste. Our single products and components such as balers, conveyors, shredders, StarScreens© and sorting robots, are developed in house. Bollegraaf always starts the design process of a MRF by visiting the customer and identifying input materials and the desired products to be marketed and sorted. Working together with the customer as a team, we propose a design that fully meets our customer's needs, based on our 50+ years of knowledge and experience in the recycling industry. 

Bollegraaf Recycling Solutions is based in The Netherlands and consists of two sistercompanies: Bollegraaf Recycling Machinery bv and Lubo Systems bv. Bollegraaf has subsidiaries in Germany, France, England and Spain for sales and service in these countries. Furthermore, we are participating in a large dealer organization that covers the whole of USA and Canada and we have Bollegraaf sales representatives, service engineers and sales agents based all over the world. 

50+ years and still green

Recycling is all about the value of re-use. It's what drives our customer's business and the industry. We believe that there is no waste. There are only valuables. This is our inspiration in contributing to our customer's businesses, the recycling industry and the world as a whole. To us this is the very essence of sustainability. You will find it in every aspect of the Bollegraaf brand and our operation; our machines have the lowest power consumption of the industry, the longest life span and the highest residual value. Besides that, they are painted green with water based paint...
