Although not commonly recognized by the consumer, electronics may contain toxic metals such as lead, cadmium or mercury, along with other materials making the importance of proper disposal and recycling imperative to protect our environment.
In addition, proper disposal and recycling of universal waste provides the opportunity for qualified companies to reuse or refurbish an item, which ultimately preserves our natural resources as well.
Aerosol Cans & Consumer Commodities
The Consumer Commodities Recycling system is designed to process pressurized steel or aluminum cans, glass, and plastics containing consumer commodity products. This one of kind unit was specially designed to service the waste industry and allows Clean Earth to completely recycle and/or reuse all components of the waste products.
The process employed is completely automated as containers are crushed and separated from the contents. Empty containers are washed and condensed into dense briquettes while the residual gas and liquid contents are captured and separated for recycling, reuse, return or as a last option disposed. The gas/liquid/container separation process is performed in an oxygen-reduced environment to ensure explosion proof and safe conditions.
What is Recycled:
- Consumer Packaging - shrink wrap, corrugated board, cardboard, pallets
- Hard Plastic Caps
- Exterior Husks - steel, aluminum
- Interior Content - return to client or reuse as "reagent/cutter"
- Vapor Gas Recovery - Capable of recovering propellants and/or gases for reuse recycle. Facility will run on Co-Gen from gas recovery mixed fuels, propane bottling station for use as fuel for facility vehicles, refrigerant propellants (ex. R-134A) for reclamation
