Ice Recycling LLC, a Leigh Fibres company, has invested in a new custom baling system, which allows for an additional 8,000 pounds of material to be shipped in an export container.

“This custom installation was specifically designed for Ice to bale core tubes, along with conventional recyclables to increase their present capacity,” a Leigh fibres press release said.

The baler is a hybrid designed with a modified charge box that increases the density of the bales produced from the standard 1,250-pound bales to more than 1,400 pounds per bale.

“Ice Recycling was founded in 2008 and became one of the Leigh Fibres family of companies in 2014, the US fibres producer added in the press release.

“Ice Recycling is a strong strategic complement to Leigh Fibre's traditional business as they share a common commitment to the environment and supply chain partnerships,” it informed.

Ice Recycling reprocesses post-industrial polymers, cardboard, paper and metals for companies throughout the Southeast and Mid-Atlantic and offers both on-site waste-stream management as well as off-site reprocessing services.

Don Bockoven, president of Ice and Leigh Fibres stated, “This capital investment provides increased efficiency and production capacity at our Lake City location.

“Ice Recycling remains committed to providing cutting edge total recycling solutions to our clients and customers as well continuing to grow and strengthen our position in the market,” Bockoven too added.

For nearly 100 years, Leigh has manufactured, traded and reprocessed fibres and polymers worldwide and through sustainable product engineering offers industries with unique solutions.

Since its beginning, Leigh has diverted more than 14 billion pounds of post-industrial and used fibre from landfills and is currently active in 25 countries around the world. (AR)
