Paper recycling is arguably the most established form of recycling and has a number of added benefits to facilitating a cleaner environment. This means that municipal paper recycling equipment must be prepared to handle large amounts of all kinds of paper. Our material handling systems and conveyor equipment is more than suitable to get the job done. Have you ever heard the term “seven generations of paper? That’s how many times paper can be recycled before the fibers become so short that it needs to be mixed with new fiber. With our long-lasting and dependable conveyor belt equipment, we have paper recycling material handling systems out there that have likely seen the same paper fibers multiple times.
Recycling one ton of paper can save 4000 KW of energy, which is enough energy to power a home in the US for six months. Recycling paper also saves resources like trees, water, and oil. Almost all US paper mills use recycled paper. Some companies are now even using paper recycling to improve their bottom line.
