West Salem Machinery provides equipment for large construction and demolition recyclers

West Salem Machinery had an opportunity to further develop their partnership with Greenway Recycling, a Portland, OR based material recovery facility (MRF).

Greenway Recycling specializes in managing recyclables for large demolition and construction projects. When they decided to expand their business to include more “urban forest” wood in their recoverable waste stream, they turned to longtime partner West Salem Machinery.

Greenway previously purchased their second West Salem Wood Grinder in 2007 to process salvage, dunnage, concrete forms, C&D debris, tree trimmings, and other large recoverables. The new second tier commodity of hog fuel / biomass feedstock is sold primarily to paper mills in the Pacific Northwest.

Through their purchase of a WSM 4864 horizontal grinder, Greenway was able to utilize the 600 HP unit with large feed opening, massive rotor, large diameter feedroll, and multi-strand chain infeed conveyor. The unique limited swing hammers offer maximum machine protection from large uncrushables. This large grinder is the optimum equipment for effective and efficient processing of large, bulky material.

With West Salem Machinery’s innovative engineering skills, machining and manufacturing capabilities, and Greenway’s commitment to state-of-the-art recycling, we are one step closer to the goal of a zero waste community.

WSM grinders and complete processing systems feature mill duty construction for dependable long-term operation and optimal performance in the most demanding applications.
