A new baling press is now in operation at Waste and Recycling Centre Ibach near Lucerne. Operational costs played an important role in the purchase decision. Hunkeler Systeme AG’s control concept was an equally convincing argument.
The Head of Department, Centre Services, Heinz Zurkirchen is pleased for a very good reason; a new baling press went into operation at the city of Lucerne’s Waste and Recycling Centre Ibach at the end of July. Hunkeler Systeme AG planned and implemented the system. In the first two months, over 400 tons of carton were compressed into bales. This is the equivalent of a fifth of the annually processed volume. The material was collected from all over the city of Lucerne in rubbish collection vehicles and transported to the Waste and Recycling Centre.
