What is “Ragger wire”?

Ragger wire consists of the plastic staples, tape, labels and baling wire found in baled post-consumer paper waste, we also call them as “pulper tail”. It is made up of approximately 45% steel and 55% post consumer waste and must be removed from the pulper. During the pulping process, the waste material winds around the wire, creating a tail-like chain which is highly compressed and extremely tough to shred. For many years, this ragger wire waste material was sent to landfills. With Harden Industries ragger wire recycling systems, this tough material can now be recycled and repurposed.
