Waste Management: the Electric Cable Recycling


One of the main problems in waste management for electric cable wastes from construction works is the quantity. The quantities of the electric cable wastes are relatively small and not profitable to be recycle. To transport the electric cables to recycling center need a larger quantity. Obviously for that reason most of the construction companies throw them away as other unusable trash. Finally, the electric cable wastes end up in our landfills.

However, if some of the recycling process could be done onsite. The cost could be reduced provided the waste management companies manage it properly. In the previous article we have seen how mini crusher could solve the problem for recycling rubble. In this article with the same idea, small and mini machines could save those recycling cables from our landfills and our environment too.
