Industrial, commercial, and residential consumers generate huge amounts of throw-away and waste products, i.e. municipal solid waste. This waste needs to be handled in an environmentally friendly manner.
As the traditional method of disposing of solid waste in landfills or incineration can contaminate the soil, water, and air. This demands the need for recycling systems to reduce pollution problems and conserve material resources.
Municipal solid waste is loaded with valuable materials. If correctly sorted and separated, we can recycle a lot of valuable materials from it.
Hence, it’s essential to install an ideal magnetic separator or the right combination of magnetic and vibrating equipment for your Municipal solid waste recycling plant. Not doing so can result in failure to sort solid waste or incorrect sorting, which can shunt recoverable materials into the waste stream and contaminates the recyclable stream with waste materials.
But with us, that won’t be the problem. Jaykrishna Magnetics Pvt. Ltd. is a renowned magnetic separator and vibratory equipment manufacturer in India. We design recycling solutions that are capable of recovering valuable resources like glass, plastic, paper, aluminum, and ferrous and non-ferrous metals from municipal solid waste.

Municipal solid waste is waste that includes everyday items that are consumed and discarded by residential consumers, commercial businesses, and public institutions.
Also known as garbage or household trash, it consists of non-hazardous refuse items such as food waste, yard waste, product packaging, containers, and inorganic wastes such as clothing and newspapers.
These refuse materials are collected, separated, and sent either for disposal in a landfill or a municipal recycling facility for processing.
Generated by households and commercial establishments, municipal solid waste consists of
➱ Household domestic waste
➱ Local council generated waste
➱ Commercial waste
This type of waste includes items generated from homes and businesses that are no longer useful. This includes items such as food, paper, plastics, textiles, leather, wood, glass, metals, sanitary waste, and other waste.
This municipal solid waste is thrown away in the garbage and picked up by a dump truck to bury in a landfill or an incinerator.
Waste generated by industries is known as non-municipal solid waste. Industries create waste while creating products or due to various other industrial processes.
For example, many industries manufacturing products like metals, ashes, glass, food, beverage, and others, generate various waste due to their pollution control equipment and industrial process.
The solid waste generated from the construction and demolition of structures is known as C&D waste. This type of solid waste includes scrap lumber, roofing materials, drywall, bricks, concrete, glass, plastic, metals, and other materials.
This includes industrial processes and pollution control waste developed by manufacturing and industrial processes. These are not hazardous waste as it includes wastes like coal ash and foundry wastes.
There is a wide variety of items that can be recycled and repurposed. The most common items that can be recycled from municipal solid waste are
➱ Product Packaging
➱ Furniture Items
➱ Plastic Bottles
➱ Food Scraps
➱ Electronics Item
Landfills are reaching their capacity, scarcity of natural resources is increasing, and all these and more necessities recycling as much as possible.
Municipal solid waste consists of many recyclable materials like glass, plastics, organics, textiles, and paper. Recycling of these materials can benefit both environmentally and economically.
The more we recycle these waste materials, the less garbage waste winds up in our landfills and incineration plants.
By recycling and reusing paper, glass, plastics, and other materials, we can save extra production costs and energy costs and, most importantly, reduce the negative impact on the environment.
All and all, municipal solid waste recycling is very important as it helps reduce the deposition of solid waste in landfills, reduces air, water, and land pollution, and conserves natural resources.
A Vibro separator is generally used as the first machine in a recycling plant. It separates rough particles inside the solid waste and prevents the clogging of waste products. Driven by a vibro motor, it conveys the solid waste toward the next separating device.
Eddy current separator is one of the best magnetic separators for the recycling industry. It is used to separate valuable non-ferrous metals from all types of waste materials, including crushed glass, household refuse, shredded wood, metals, PET flakes, incineration ash, electronic waste, and many others.
An overband magnetic separator is positioned in line with or perpendicular to conveyor belts or chutes to remove unwanted and damaging iron contamination from municipal solid waste materials.
At Jaykrishna Magnetics Pvt. Ltd. we provide both permanent and electromagnetic overband magnetic separators to suit the diverse needs of recycling industries.
A drum magnetic separator is used to automatically remove heavy ferrous metals from waste material during processing. With a super strong rare earth drum magnet, our drum-type magnetic separator ensures the highest level of end-product purity and recovery of metals.
The amount and effects of municipal solid waste are emerging day by day. Hence, effective and efficient municipal waste recycling systems are necessary.
Recycling equipment at Jaykrishna Magnetics Pvt. Ltd. is designed to sort and separate waste materials efficiently and economically. Our range of magnetic separators and vibratory equipment can handle every kind of municipal solid waste with utmost accuracy.
