Where do you think all-recyclable commercial, industrial and recyclable waste goes? It goes to recycling facilities and waste management centres where it is sorted through and sent for processing. Suppose you are running a business in the waste recycling industry and receive hundreds of tonnes of recyclable waste each day. Managing this volume of waste is a challenge, and an even bigger challenge is ensuring cleanliness on site. This is why all major players in the industry rely on automated sweepers and scrubbers such as the ASC M6 Large Rider Sweeper.
