While LCSWMA’s WTE facilities currently use in-line metal recovery systems, only larger metals are removed. Inashco offers an advanced metals recovery system to remove pebble-sized metals present in the ash. This includes both ferrous (iron) and non-ferrous (aluminum, copper, brass, zinc, gold, silver, etc.) metals.
