Liberty Island is where the Statue of Liberty stands and Ellis Island harbors the historic immigration center. The sites are two of New York’s main attractions.

Approximately 3.5 million people visit these national landmarks every year. It is a challenge to deal with all the PET bottles left behind by the tourists and two tough heavy-duty Orwak balers have taken on the task and moved into one location each.

They had to take the ferry out to the islands and the baler on Liberty Island got stationed inside the actual base of The Statue! The twin balers proved themselves by crushing and baling several tons of PET bottles already the first summer season on duty.
