Recycling viticulture clips

We provide low-cost, sustainable fencing solutions for NZ. We’re looking for a recycling solution for the clips/nails used in our viticulture posts. We’re recycling the posts but have 30 tonnes of clips/nails that we want to recycle dotted around Marlborough. There are about 14 clips/nails per post and we process upward of 1200 posts a day. As such, the piles of clips/nails are growing! We need a recycling solution for them. That could include designing and building a machine that shreds the plastic then removes any metal using a magnet, but we’re open to any innovative ideas! Any help would be much appreciated.
