Establishing a Recycling Program: the OBC Four Step Solution
Call the OBC team and we will help you take the first step toward implementing a profitable recycling program in your business. By conducting a no-obligation initial analysis to review your processes, we can help answer your questions and provide information to help you better manage your waste materials. Even if our analysis does not result in an equipment purchase, our goal is to help everyone recognize their potential for recycling.
Prior to recycling, your operation needs to develop a plan for the proper storage of the waste material you generate. The OBC team can assist you in creating a solution for separating and storing your waste materials and determining the potential revenue this waste stream can generate. Good storage planning not only preps you for the recycling process, but will also help keep your work place clean, safer and more organized.
If we determine that you generate enough recyclable waste to warrant an equipment investment, we can help identify your options for managing and processing that waste for market. The variety, volume and throughput of your waste material, amount of open floor space, and availability and cost of labor will all figure into which machine best fits your business. Our goal is to help you generate a positive return on your investment within 12–18 months of purchase.
OBC can help you identify reputable partners in your local area that can arrange for purchase and acquisition of your recyclable materials. We can also provide consultation to help you create a broader market plan for selling your material, as well as how to best sort, prepare and package your materials to generate the highest value in world markets.
Recycling is the reprocessing of materials into new products. Recycling prevents useful material resources being wasted, reduces the consumption of raw materials and reduces energy usage, and hence greenhouse gas emissions, compared to virgin production.
Recycling has been a common practice throughout human history and is beneficial in two ways: it reduces the inputs (energy and raw materials) to a production system and reduces the amount of waste produced for disposal. Recycling is a series of activities that includes collecting recyclable materials that would otherwise be considered waste, sorting and processing into raw materials such as fibers, and manufacturing raw materials into new products.
- recycling frees space
- recycling creates a safer and more clutter-free work environment
- recycling is environmentally friendly
- recycling helps your business meet the increase in recycling requirements
- recycling can be a good source of additional revenue for your business
- Recycling a four-foot stack of newspapers saves the equivalent of one 40-foot fir tree that can filter up to 60 pounds of pollutants from the air each year.
- One ton of recycled paper saves 3,700 pounds of lumber (17 trees), 24,000 gallons of water and enough energy to power a television for 31 hours.
- Making paper from recycled material uses 60% less energy than making paper from virgin pulp.
- If every household in the U.S. reused a paper bag for one shopping trip, about 60,000 trees would be saved.
- Recycling one ton of cardboard saves more than nine cubic yards of landfill space; 9% of the average garbage dump consists of cardboard boxes (that's 100 cubic yards of waste just from cardboard).
- Recycling corrugated cardboard cuts the emissions of sulfur dioxide in half and uses about 25% less energy than making cardboard from virgin pulp.
- Recycling one ton of paper uses 7,000 fewer gallons of water, reduces 35% of the water pollution and 70% of the air pollution produced in making new paper, uses 4100 KWH less energy, and saves 390 gallons of oil.
- North America has 8% of the world's population, consumes 1/3 of the world's resources and produces almost half of the world's non-organic garbage.
- More than 70% of landfilled waste could be either reused or recycled.
- One liter of oil can contaminate more than one million liters of ground water.
- In North America , approximately 20% of our paper, plastic, glass and metal goods are currently made from recycled material — a goal of 50% could be easily achieved with today’s methods and economic motivations.
Cardboard recycling can be beneficial in many ways. Not only does unflattened cardboard take up an enormous amount of space, it can be hazardous in many work environments. While cardboard recycling conserves resources and protects the environment, it can also be a potential source of additional revenue for your business.
Cardboard packaging is the leading method of distribution for the entire packaging industry. More than 90% of all products in the United States are shipped in corrugated boxes. Corrugated cardboard accounts for a huge percentage of solid waste, almost 90% of which comes from commercial or non-residential industries.
OBC is ready to assist you with questions regarding your specific recycling needs, and consult on the appropriate equipment to handle your waste management.
The extreme versatility of plastic is the main reason that we now have so many items in our society made from it. The need for plastic recycling equipment has increased dramatically due to the ever-increasing amount of plastic waste. Recycling plastic not only protects the environment and conserves resources, but like cardboard, it can also be a potential source of additional revenue for your business.
Recycled plastic has become an increasingly large market, but it does present some unique challenges that require proper planning and preparation to overcome. OBC has the experience and knowledge to work with you in analyzing your material flow, equipment needs and operational function to recycle these materials in a safe and profitable manner.
Non-Ferrous Scrap Metal
The value of non-ferrous metals, from aluminum to exotic metal shavings, has grown consistently, resulting in the need for specialized prep and baling equipment for proper recycling.
Non-ferrous scrap encompasses all metals other than iron and steel, including aluminum cans, copper, lead, zinc, nickel, titanium, cobalt, chromium, and precious metals. While the volume of non-ferrous scrap metal is less then ferrous scrap (such as automobiles, steel containers, and ships), it has a much higher value per pound. One of the attractive features in recycling all scrap metals (both ferrous and non-ferrous) is that they can be continue to be recycled indefinitely without loosing any of their properties.
The production of raw metals continues to grow, but the resources necessary for their production have become more limited, resulting in a spike in the cost of mining new ore. This has created an explosion of opportunity in metal recycling. Understanding how to navigate world markets for recycled metal, and proper sorting and preparation are crucial in maximizing your revenue from scrap metal. OBC has worked with hundreds of scrap metal processors to develop solutions that best fit their needs and generate top dollar for their scrap metal material.
