Waste Baler Machines for Recycling Plastic in Shops.

By: Phillip Applegate

The application of Waste Balers is actually rising in the global 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 made, on their waste disposal bills.

Waste balers come in a number of shapes and sizes, and with differing features. The most usual waste baler type is a vertical baler. As the term suggests, this is where the waste balers pressing plate travels in a vertical direction, going up and down.

A vertical baler is principally effective in a selection of applications, such as shops, supermarkets, restaurants, manufacturing, transport, schools, hotels, construction etc. Waste balers are commonly used as cardboard balers or plastic balers. Cardboard and plastic are the most general resources which can be compacted for recycling.

All areas of industry are being forced to decrease the amount of their waste which is sent to landfill. Governments have implemented landfill taxes and this makes it very dear to send waste to landfill. There is a tax per tonnage, which is rising annually.

By recycling cardboard and plastic, many organizations can eliminate 80% of their waste from going to landfill sites. If a company uses a waste baler it is generally much less-expensive than the price of emptying skips or bins.

An example of this is where a small baler will normally cost a typical school, restaurant, hotel or other small business about 12 per week, on a lease hire. A standard 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 probable savings which can be made here. Cardboard and plastic bales have a recyclable worth and are in general removed 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 implemented in each council borough.

There is a clear saving because the collection of cardboard and plastic from bins is completely eliminated. The outlay of the waste baler and free bale collections is substantially lower than the cost of numerous bins being emptied.

Another main advantage is something called the carbon footprint. The main carbon saving is the lessening of large vehicles on the road to collect the recyclable waste. Instead, the cardboard and plastic is segregated at source and is baled to reduce its volume. Being compacted there is a reduced amount of waste collection lorries on the roads.

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

The main benefit however is to the planet. It is actually less-expensive to recycle and reuse waste than it is to manufacture more new products from raw materials such as trees in forests.
