Waste Baler Equipment for Recycling Cardboard in Supermarkets.

By: Danny Cottle

The exploitation of Waste Balers is in reality rising in the overall market place in great quantities on a daily basis. People are realising how and where a waste baler can be used and the real savings which can be achieved, on their waste disposal expenses.

Waste balers appear in several shapes and sizes, and with differing features. The most frequent waste baler style is a vertical baler. As the term suggests, this is where the waste balers pressing plate works in a vertical direction, going up and down.

A vertical baler is specifically valuable in a variety of applications, such as shops, supermarkets, restaurants, manufacturing, transport, schools, hotels, construction etc. Waste balers are mainly used as cardboard balers or plastic balers. Cardboard and plastic are the most familiar materials which can be baled for recycling.

All areas of business are being pressured to improve the volume of their waste which is sent to landfill. Governments have introduced landfill taxes and this makes it very pricey to send waste to landfill. There is a tax per tonnage, which is increasing annually.

By recycling cardboard and plastic, many company's can remove 80% of their waste from going to landfill sites. If a company uses a waste baler it is customarily much cheaper than the cost of emptying skips or bins.

An instance of this is where a small baler will usually cost a typical school, restaurant, hotel or other small business about 12 per week, on a lease hire. A typical school may use at least 6 to 12 large 1100 litre bins for their cardboard and plastic waste per week at a cost of about 12 per bin emptied. You can see the likely savings which can be made here. Cardboard and plastic bales have a recyclable value and are generally collected free of charge.

In fact, where council budgets are concerned in the UK, a great deal of money could be saved across the board, if more waste balers are introduced in each council borough.

There is a net saving because the collection of cardboard and plastic from bins is completely eliminated. The outlay of the waste baler and gratis bale collections is significantly lower than the cost of several bins being emptied.

Another main benefit is something called the carbon footprint. The main carbon saving is the decrease of large vehicles on the road to collect the recyclable waste. Instead, the cardboard and plastic is segregated at source and is compacted to reduce its volume. Being compacted there is less waste collection vehicles on the roads.

The bales are normally collected by sole traders or individuals, in order for them to make a living.

The main advantage however is to the planet. It is in fact cheaper to recycle and reuse waste than it is to fabricate more new products from raw materials such as trees in forests.
