Metal Cans: Can Recycling Case Study

Metal Cans: Can Recycling Case Study

Doncaster Community Recycling Partnership

The Doncaster Community Recycling Partnership, a not for profit organisation, has been using an Advanced Recycling Systems' Can Crusher since May 2002 and Mr Cliff Hamnet, Operations Manager, is extremely pleased with the results.

The series KK340 KanKrush machine and feed conveyor, capable of processing up to 360 Kg/hour, was sponsored by Corus and installed to deal with Aluminium and Steel cans collected from the kerbsides of 21,000 homes. With eventual target capacity of 60,000 homes the Can Crusher is running for two hours per day and produces at least 2 bales per minute.

Once processed the baled Aluminium and Steel cans are sold to Corus and Alcan, with Steel production being five times that of Aluminium by weight.
