Recycling waste materials is a growing concern for municipalities and eco-aware communities. As government policy evolves, and overseas processing facilities are becoming less accessible, Australian recycling is booming. 

Industry Challenges 

Our communities and industries are creating enormous amounts of waste, and recycling plays an increasingly important role in minimising the affects on the environment. Recycling waste materials includes: 

  • Storage 
  • Collecting 
  • Sorting 
  • Processing 
  • Transporting 

Materials being recycled include: 

  • Glass 
  • Paper 
  • Electronics 
  • Carboard 
  • Metals 
  • Plastics 
  • Textiles 

Many of these materials pose additional problems including: 

  • EPA regulations on dealing with harmful particulates. 
  • Combustible dusts 
  • Toxic dust & fumes, especially from electronic waste. 
  • Odour and vapour control 

Recycling facilities not only have to provide a safe, clean work environment for its workers, but they have a responsibility to reduce the odours emanating from the facilities to stop the complaints of nearby factories and neighbourhoods. Recycling facilities are looking at ways to reduce their carbon footprint, reduce operational costs, and create a work environment that is attractive to new staff.

When we required the latest technology for our new plant in Mount Gambier, Glenn was able to not only supply the material but organise his competent crew to install the extractor on site during the Covid shutdown when we were experiencing very tight deadlines. We can highly recommend Glenn and his knowledgeable team.

UWE Hay worked with Airtight Solutions at our export facility in Southern New South Wales for the installation of a fully integrated dust extraction system. The staff and leadership at the business were of the highest calibre and the professional approach was felt from the initial phone interaction to the onsite visit, to the cost effective quote of their fully customised solution and installation of the system within our facility. Prior to selecting Airtight Solutions our company discussed our requirements with several company’s however the outcome was there was only one choice. Airtight Solutions provided a highly professional package and after sales service and we would recommend their systems to any other businesses in the agricultural industry with similar requirements.

When I upgraded my underperforming cartridge dust collector, Airtight Solutions came highly recommended. My expectations were naturally high, but the system is everything they said it would be and the performance difference is unbelievable!
Airtight delivered a quality job and timely with minimal disruptions. The process was made easy and the communication was open and honest. I would recommend Airtight to anyone.
