EPS Waste in Muswellbrook Shire Council was perfectly recycled by GREENMAX EPS Melting Machine

Muswellbrook Shire is a local government area in the Upper Hunter region of New South Wales, located in the northern part of Sydney CBD, less than 300KM from downtown Sydney, Australia. Australia’s oldest coal mining originated in Muswellbrook, dating back to 1800’s. There are currently about 17,000 people, occupying an area of 3405 km2. 

As early as 2015, when the Community Recycling Center (CRC) of Muswellbrook Shire Council was planning, the person in charge contacted the GREENMAX team, hoping to get an EPS recycling solution. Muswellbrook Shire Council has a small population, and the amount of EPS waste produced is not very large, but it takes up a lot of space in CRC and landfills due to the special properties, as well as causing problems for 5S management.

In 2017, when the GREENMAX team made regular customer visits, they made a special trip to see the CRC under construction. At that time, the EPS recycling center was planned, and then the GREENMAX EPS recycling machine began to be considered. Combined with the EPS recycling status provided by Muswellbrook Shire Council, the GREENMAX team gave a professional solution, and finally, the Mars Series EPS Hot Melting Machine M-C50 model was finally chosen.

When the EPS Hot Melting Machine arrived, the GREENMAX team arranged technicians for on-site installation and commissioning and provided professional training to Muswellbrook's team to ensure that everyone who might use the machine understands it before using it. 

With the support of this M-C50 EPS hot melting machine, the EPS waste of Muswellbrook Shire Council can be recycled well. Throwing the bulky EPS foam into the machine, then it can be compressed to 1/90 of its original volume, which greatly saves storage space and transportation costs. According to the population of Muswellbrook, it is expected to save $28,800 in EPS disposal cost each year. Based on the lifetime of the GREENMAX machine being at least 10 years, the M-C50 hot melting machine is expected to help Muswellbrook Shire Council save $288,000 in the next 10 years.
