A cardboard baler as with all of our waste compactors, saves time, money and space…

  • Time – no need to spend time flattening boxes.Simply place the cardboard waste straight into a heavy duty industrial cardboard baler and let it do the flat packing for you - the vertical baling press will flatten your cardboard into consistent size bales. The size of cardboard compactor baler you need depends on the sizes of boxes you handle and the amount. With a free site survey we can tell you exactly what your requirements are and offer you the choice of many industry leading types of cardboard balers. A cardboard waste baler can often be located closer to the source of the waste so time can be saved carrying materials out to bins - streamlining your waste recycling process. This reduces the travel time of transporting the baled  cardboard the baler produces. 
  • Money – If you are spending more than £20 per week on DMR bins then we will probably have a cheaper solution for you. Prices start from just £16.50 per week and offer reduced collection costs of waste.
  • Space – our smallest waste handling balers use the same footprint as a filing cabinet so can easily fit into small gaps taking up less space than a bin whilst they reduce the volume of your waste. Even our larger balers don’t take up much more space then just 1 bin whilst still effectively handling large amounts of cardboard waste - our drum press machines are similar sizes too. This means you are able to remove your bins and save space whilst our vertical cardboard baler machines compact cardboard through vertical baling. Space which could be used for parking, dining and outside areas which would otherwise be unusable.
