New Recycling Baler – Continued Automation at Public Works

Public Works has a new monster at the recycling center – just in time for Halloween.  This huge blue machine gobbles up the recyclables loaded into it, crushes them into huge rectangle bales, binds them with wire and spits them back out to be shipped to St Louis where they are processed.

The City’s Public Works Department collects 168 tons of recyclables every month. For more information visit: www.cityofcape.org/solidwaste
