Purpose/Background

Marathon Baler Wire Tie Upgrade:

The recycling center has an aging baler that is used to package over 35% of our inbound material. This baler is over 20 years old, and the baler wire tie system is out of date and no longer is fully functional. There are available upgrade units that will allow for fully automatic operations.

This upgrade will involve the following:

  • Off hours installation (1-2 day)
  • Removing the old bale wire system with its software and hardware
  • Installing new upgraded wire tie system with its software and hardware
  • Testing and training system for operation

The County operator, Eco Cycle will have a team on site for training and system acceptance.
