Cardboard balers can reduce the cost of your waste...
Loose or non-baled materials require a tremendous amount of space compared to baled waste. One of the main benefits of baling as much of a waste stream of recyclables as possible (such as bulky cardboard) is that the materials are removed from the waste stream. Even when there is no ‘recycling program’ in place this can lower waste hauling requirements considerably, since even a small quantity of baled recyclables would probably be picked up at no charge by a recycler.
Cardboard balers are almost essential pieces of equipment. As cardboard is extensively used for packaging, a large amount of it ends up in landfill sites. By using a Cardboard baler you can help to conserve the environment by crushing cardboard and compacting large amounts into a singe cardboard bale which is easier to then transport. Cardboard is fed in and compressed, then tied off with baler wire, baler twine or baler tape, to await collection.
The cardboard baler cost need not be prohibitive to your business. It can often make financail sense to bale cardboard on your premises, for direct onward transportation to a recycling plant, rather than having stacks of bins or large skips. The benefit of baling card of high quality is not only financial, but space saving and also allows you the increased recycling levels which come with separating individual waste and recycling streams as soon as they become 'waste'.
A typical corrugated cardboard bale weighs 600-1100lb per cubic yard, which when compared to the alternative of 50-100 lb [per cubic yard, you can see the efficiencies clearly.

A mini cardboard baler is the type of baler you may find at the back of your local mid-size one stop shop or supermarket. These are sometimes referred to as 'plug and play' as they plug into a normal electrical socket and off you go.
If the amount of cardboard you produce is of a larger volume, you may require a large cardboard baler. These willproduce Mill size cardboard bales which can be directly transported to a cardboard recycling factory, without the need for your recycling company to double-handle the waste and rebale at a materials recovery facility. This minimal handling reduces the cost of producing the bale and can maximise the rebates you can earn from your cardboard bales.
