Van Dyk Baler Corp., a leading distributor of single-stream processing equipment, has completed the installation of its first Bollegraaf single-stream system in Canada for International Paper Industries (IPI). Headquartered in Vancouver, IPI has incorporated a Lubo OCC Starscreen(tm), a Double Deck ONP/ French Banana Starscreen(tm) (paper commingled separation) with air and a Glassbreaker Starscreen(tm) into its new system. The single-stream system will process over 40,000 tonnes per year of Winnipeg residential recyclables.
Bollegraaf and Lubo were both pioneers in single-stream processing. Benefits include lower collection costs and higher diversion rates (due to easier participation by the homeowner), one tipping floor and one residue stream. Municipalities and waste haulers are taking an in-depth look at single-stream recycling as a way of streamlining collection and processing to reduce overall operating costs of their recycling programs.
In related news, Recycled Fibers, a division of The Newark Group, recently purchased three of Bollegraaf’s balers for use in their plants around the country. Starting with two Bollegraaf HBC-140F balers for its Newark, NJ and Moraine, Ohio plants, Recycled Fibers also purchased a Bollegraaf HBC-80 baler for the Shreveport, LA plant. The HBC-80 will be Van Dyk Baler Corp.’s first installation in LA. Both the HBC-140 and the HBC-80 feature the signature Bollegraaf pre-press flap.
Van Dyk has also completed six of eight installations scheduled for Recycle America Alliance of the Bollegraaf HBC-140F Baler. These eight new Bollegraaf balers will be in operation across the United States.
