Conventional impressions can stay in a landfill for up to 50 years but Ragle is able to recycle the milled polyurethane waste and old models. He’s recycling 2,500 to 2,800 pounds of polyurethane per month using a local service.
Each milling machine weighs over 7,000 pounds and is almost 9’ tall by 10’ wide and 8’ deep once set up. The machines were delivered on a semi with a 10,000-lb. forklift that easily picked up one of the machines and drove right into the building.
