When you come inside to recycle your cans this will be the first part of the process you will approach. You will be asked to dump your cans into the conveyer’s hopper as one of our employee’s operate the conveyer and watch for any trash or any other foreign objects other than aluminum cans. The purpose of this conveyor is not only to be sure foreign objects are removed but also at the top of this conveyer is a built in magnet in the roller that drives the conveyer. This removes any steel cans. Your cans then drop into the scale basket.
