V500 Semi Auto Baler - The Ideal Paper Baling Machinery For Substantial Waste {Volumes|Amounts[/spin

By: Phillip Applegate

Legislation requires that all company's must demonstrate they implement a good Pre-Treatment of Waste Programme. Basically, Pre-Treatment of Waste requires that you sort your waste before disposal. You should sort your waste and remove everything which can be recycled. The waste which is not recyclable can also be reduced in its volume and then sent to landfill. businesses are subject to ever-increasing taxes on volumes of waste going to landfill.

For most company's it will not be economical to have a Mill Size Baler. The expense of a Mill Size Baler is usually much higher than smaller balers. For most businesses a small to medium waste compactor will be enough.

Generally, you will bale your cardboard and you can expect Complimentary Bale Collections at the very least. All bales which are less than Mill Size weight (400kg/600kg) are generally collected Free of Charge. The collectors will take the bales to a Trade Waste Station and they will get money for it. Mill Size bales have a higher premium price because they can be transported more economically. The mill size bales are more compact and can be loaded into containers for transport abroad to recycling plants.

If small bales are taken into a Trade Waste Station, the value is less, because the Waste Station will always re-bale the cardboard into Mill Size Bales. There is a cost for re-baling; the wire ties, the labor and the cost of the machinery. Consequently, Mill Size bales have a higher value coming into the Waste Station.

There are dedicated companies who trade in Mill Size Cardboard Bales. They will actually come to collect your Mill Size Bales Free of Charge and they will generally pay you a rate per ton for your cargo. In general, there is a minimum amount of Mill Size bales they will collect on each visit. This is to make transportation expenses most economical. Generally, they will prefer to collect 10 to 20 tons of Mill Size Bales each time. By having a complete load the vehicles will be on the road less and their Carbon Footprint will also be better.

As an example, one Cardboard Waste Trading Company, in Central England, is presently collecting 10 ton minimum cargos (20 bales) and paying between £55 to £65 per ton (Todayís date is 21 February 2010). The price of Cardboard and other waste materials can rise and fall with market conditions.

I recently encountered one business whose cardboard waste bill was £1,400 per month. They have recently leased a Mill Size baler from my company for £39 per week. After 5 years they will own the baler for a nominal fee. Now letís look at the financial implications:

The client was generating 14 tons of cardboard per month. The cardboard bins were costing £1,400 per month. It took many lorries to collect this binned rubbish. These many lorries ferrying loose cardboard was creating a very significant carbon footprint.

The Client now has a W500 Mill Size Baler costing £173.33 per month; wire ties are about £240 per month. Total cost is £413.00 per month. The Client receives a revenue of £60 x 14 tons = £840. Now there is an approximate net income for cardboard waste of £427.00.

This obviously means instead of paying £1,400 for their waste, they are now in receipt of £427.00. They are £1,848.33 per month better off and the Carbon Footprint of this waste material is seriously reduced with much less vehicles needed to transport it.

Hopefully, you can see there needs to be high volumes of cardboard waste, to make the use of a Mill Size Baler economical. Bales can be stored outside on pallets until there is sufficient to transport.

Deciding on the best Waste Compactor Machinery for your business, should be left to the people in the know. It's better to get advice from people who really know their machines and the waste materials which you produce. Organizations often think they need a larger baler and sometimes a smaller less-expensive waste baler will be quite adequate.
