Our Balers Help Tampa 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.

Often overlooked as a vacation spot because of Orlando, but Tampa has some of the best to offer in the way of activities, sports, amusements and weather. It has never broken 100 degrees near the water in Tampa and in fact, it may be so nice, people never want to leave – even after they have died. Yep, Tampa is considered one of the most haunted places int America.

The city of Tampa’s Department of Solid Waste & Environmental Program Management is currently conducting a study of recyclables collected from residents and businesses within the city, with an emphasis on ultimately cutting down on the percentage of contamination in its recycling bins. 

Same Waste Problem, Different State

We have heard it time and time again – contamination in the waste and recycling stream is a challenge. Along with the China issue, this is the problem most besetting cities across America.

The Florida Legislature set a statewide weight-based recycling goal of 75% by this year, but that’s not going to happen. The statewide recycling rate is currently just at 49%, according to a 2019 report from the Florida Department of Environmental Protection.

Changing Collection Methods and Recycling Markets
“Many of the challenges we currently face with recycling have occurred as a result of changes in collection methods, recycling markets and the types and quality of materials acceptable for recycling,” the report reads.

A previous survey done by the city of Tampa showed that a whopping 37% of what is placed in recycling bins are contaminated items – meaning those items that are not recyclable or include dirty food containers (think of a stained pizza box). 

With channel partners like South Florida Equipment and Global Trash Solutions, Bramidan is doing its part to source separate using vertical balers and trash compactors. By keeping waste separated at key places like multi-unit dwellings, commercial enterprises, strip malls and hotels, the contamination problem is eased and costs avoided.
