There are a number of different steps required to recycle materials and a wide range of equipment required for each step. Some businesses only require recycling equipment on a short-term basis to assist with the recycling of materials that are available to a company. The scale of a project may also increase leading to a requirement for increased availability of machinery on a site.
Some examples of equipment that could be useful in a recycling context are shredding machinery, with different shredders used for different materials, and dumpers used to efficiently transport large amounts of a given material across a site. A core benefit of hiring machinery rather than purchasing machinery is that it can improve the commercial outcomes of a project. Rather than purchasing expensive, specialist equipment which may only be required for a short period of time, hiring provides the option to save money by accessing highly-maintained specialist equipment only for the duration of a project.

With different shredders used for different materials, companies will often hire this machinery if there is an increased requirement to recycle a specific material. Some of the key factors when hiring a shredder are shredding speed, fuel consumption and noise levels. Often slower speed shredders are more closely suited to shredding materials such as wood, green and mixed waste. A higher speed shredder can be beneficial from a standpoint of shredding volume. It is worth discussing the requirements of your project with an experienced machinery hire company in order to establish the best tool for the job.
Dumpers are useful in moving large amounts of materials intended for recycling around a site. It is important to work out the requirements of a project and the intended timeframe to establish the number of dumpers that will be required to achieve these aims. By working with an established machinery hire company it is possible to ensure that the machinery that is used is properly maintained, in good condition and well-suited to the intended project.
A trommel is a versatile piece of machinery with a range of uses in the context of recycling. This can be used to sort materials based on the size of different objects which are fed through. Sorting different materials is a core step in any recycling process and this piece of machinery provides a useful asset in this context.
