    Pinecom Recycling center container collection point has been now converted to Automated Depot collection point

     

    With a new Singulator in operation, Pinecom Recycling center container collection point has been now converted to Automated Depot collection point. Singulator is a machine which can automatically process upwards of 3,000 eligibal contains per hour with less effort, and it has an automated scanning and counting system that provides efficient processing of bulk returns. Three Valmar employees with disabilities have been trained to feed-in containers and chage over bins when they are full. Precently we process around 15,000 containers per day and looking forward to increase the output to 25,000 containers per day. This means more staff are required, and more people with disabilities will get the opportunity to work in the automated shed. Chris, the Coordinator for Pinecom Recycling is looking forward to skill up his team in all sigulator tasks. Pinecom recycling is partnered with TOMRA Cleanaway and TOMARA is the owner of the singulator and provides support and servicing.
