Sierra Recycling and Demolition has built success at the scrapyard based on reliable equipment, advanced technology and solid culture

Shortly after World War II, Ben Sacco came to California and started Sierra Bag Company, servicing the agriculture industry. In the late fifties, Sierra Iron & Metal was born when he dedicated a portion of his operation to scrap metal collection. He then added a baler to process scrap, which he found while visiting his homeland of Italy. Sacco eventually became the official North and South American distributor for the baler manufacturer, starting Sierra International Machinery, while at the same time continuing to operate his scrapyard, Sierra Iron & Metal. About 10 years ago, the business was passed on to Ben Sacco's two sons, John and Philip Sr., both of whom have been lifelong employees and contributors to the business. The scrap recycling part of the Sacco family business today operates as Sierra Recycling and Demolition Inc., run by Phil Sacco, while Sierra International Machinery, the recycling equipment manufacturer and distributor, is run by John Sacco - both out of Bakersfield, California.

​Sierra International Machinery introduces REB4 Two-Ram Baler

Introduced at ISRI 2018 this week in Las Vegas, the groundbreaking REB4 two-ram baler is the only two-ram that features Sierra's patent pending dual-compression doors. The REB4 uses 55 tons of force per door to push the material below the cutting knife and into the charging chamber, increasing charging efficiency, eliminating roll-back, and pre-densifying the material before the cycle even begins. Which leads to a 20 to 40 percent increase in production.
