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.

Equipped with a highly effective dust filter shaker, this recycling sweeper ensures extreme deep cleaning. It is best suited for sweeping narrow areas that are not reachable by larger machines and for picking up debris. With high endurance and top-notch performance, this high dump steel recycling sweeper has a volume capacity of whooping 200 litres! Our clients in the waste and recycling industry, such as Sima Metal Management, Skip Hire, IMPACT Community Services, and Economy Waste, have used and loved ASC’s waste transfer sweepers to clean up scrap metal and debris and pick up dust from every nook and corner.
