Recycling Scales & Scrap Weighing Scales

Scrap recycling has become an integral part of our national economy as well as global trade because of the focus on sustainability. The scrap recycling industry is a $117 billion industry in the US processing metal, plastic, glass, electronics, textiles, paper and rubber, and has over a $2 billion economic impact in Arizona. From feeder yards to shredders, processors, and bundlers, Southwestern Scale provides recycling scales for weighing trucks, rail cars and materials that help scrap recyclers operate their “cash registers” and in process weighing equipment at optimal levels.

Scrap material recycling operations use scales as the basis for commercial transactions. Inbound and outbound truck scales identifying net weight values, floor and bench scales for weighing materials, and legal for trade rail scales play a part in most recycling operations. Southwestern Scale not only provides these solutions, but we also service, calibrate and certify scales used in recycling operations.
