Mick George is continuing to invest in machinery to improve service efficiency. Its latest is the installation of a baler at its St Ives Recycling Centre.
The Aries 115 twin-ram baler with crosswrap is designed for refuse-derived fuel and card, made by Ken Mills Engineering based in Littleborough, Greater Manchester.
The 63- or 104-tonne pressing force can produce high-density bales of up to 700kg, for multiple materials including plastic bottles, UBC cans, paper trim, cardboard, polythene sheet, textiles and foam scrap. The machine is fitted with the Accent 470 wire tie, which has a capacity of up to 20 bales an hour.
