Baling and Wrapping of MSW in St. Lucie, Florida, USA Video
An example of baling and wrapping of MSW with Macpresse baler can be seen in this virtual tour of St. Lucie County baling and recycling facility. Incoming household, commercial and industrial waste, once at the plant, is inspected to eliminate prohibited materials (acid batteries, tires, propane cycinders…). While cardboard, metal and water are removed from recycling, the remaining waste is conveyed from the tipping floor to the baling floor, where Macpresse balers produce bales of 40000 pund weight. Than bales are transported to the landfill, organized as building blocks: this system allows to put twice the amount of garbage into the same amount of space of a conventional landfill.
