Millennium Recycling Sees Big Change With Big Baler From Bollegraaf
Millennium Recycling in Sioux Falls, SD bought a refurbished Bollegraaf HBC-140 baler from distributor VAN DYK Recycling Solutions to handle commercial OCC and fiber from a residential single stream system. After two failed attempts with another baler manufacturer, Jake Anderson, owner and president of Millennium, jumped at the chance to purchase a large Bollegraaf used baler.
Because large used Bollegraafs very rarely come on the market, it was opportune that this machine was available just when Anderson needed it. As Scott Jable, Midwest Regional Manager for VAN DYK, says, “most used Bollegraafs are smaller models, having been traded in for upgrades to larger machines.”
Millennium is seeing success with the new machine. Anderson says, “We’ve already seen an increase in production.”
With the Bollegraaf HBC-140, Millennium can produce bales at the following speeds:
• OCC— 1 every 85 seconds (2100-2200 lbs, 60”)
• ONP— 1 every 60 seconds (2600 lbs, 60”)
• Magazines— 1 every 70 seconds (2600-3000 lbs, 54-60”)
These numbers prove that the Bollegraaf HBC-140 can bale at remarkable rates, including OCC at 45 tons per hour and ONP at 78 tons per hour.
