The auto recycling industry plays an important role in the conservation of natural resources through the recycling and reuse of vehicle parts and scrap metal. With scrap steel and iron prices averaging around $250 per ton, not only is the industry environmentally friendly, it is also profitable. The car logger or baler is a key piece of equipment in this industry.
Around 65% of a junked car is steel and recycling this metal uses up around 75% less energy than making new steel. Buying recycled steel is cheaper too because new ore does not have to be mined to produce it. With all steel today made up of at least 25% recycled steel, and the number of products made of solely recycled steel increasing, recycling cars has become a vital link in the world’s industrial infrastructure. This fact shows how lucrative a business the auto recycling industry is.
This large horizontal baler is able to compress material tighter than vertical balers are often capable of and can handle larger amounts of material, making it a viable option for industries beyond just auto and salvage yard recycling. This unit is ideal for industries and businesses that produce large quantities of recyclable waste and wish to bale this waste often. Its large intake capacity also makes it suitable for bulky waste. Baling drastically reduces the cost of transportation and storing of the material because baled waste takes up significantly less space than loose waste.
