Our Balers Help Portland Recycle & Compact Waste

Commit to the environment with our waste management solutions. Simplify recycling with cutting-edge equipment for a greener city and sustainable future.

It’s fun for the people of Portland to have unique quirks and small (or big) traditions. They say “Keep Portland Weird” for a reason; they want to maintain originality. But that originality has also created an identity crisis at the civic level. Portland has seen its challenges over the past few years and that is not limited to political fallout. It suffers from a great desire to do the right thing environmentally, but lack of will to coordinate efforts to do so.

While loving to recycle, most Portlanders are throwing away the wrong things and contaminating the recycling stream. Bramidan machinery is helping keep the city progressive in its recycling efforts. 

Portland Doing the Right Thing

Ironically a city known for its passion for recycling does one of the worst jobs of it. In 2011, Portland gave residents another bin for wet compost to add to the recycling stream. At the same time, the city shifted to collecting garbage only every other week—which led some people to throw garbage in their blue bins.

Our MRFs also tend to be old and inefficient. Experts say, for instance, that leading recycling cities, such as San Francisco and Seattle and even red-state cities such as Las Vegas and Cincinnati, have invested much more in sorting and processing. Additionally, many Oregon paper mills have closed due to poor policies.

With Bramidan equipment, like the low profile 60 inch – X6030 – more material could be prepared in a state that would facilitate the direct conversion of the material such as cardboard bales into new raw materials. Plastics would not be contaminated by food and other materials like glass.

Along with Bramidan, channel partners like CARE (Compactors and Recycling Equipment) are doing their best to help Portland and the rest of Oregon take the simple steps they need to take to go from good intentions to effective programs.
