A cardboard baler works as a replacement to cardboard bins. Bins of any size are not effective for containing cardboard. Whole boxes take up bin space in no time and often you have to resort to flat-packing boxes to save space, but this wastes labour hours – it is a no-win situation.
The cost of bin lifts is increasing year-on-year. With the government encouraging more domestic and workplace recycling, the taxes on landfill are rising every April. These higher charges get passed from the waste management business to its customers, so each bin lift becomes more expensive. It does not matter if a bin is only half full or overflowing, the charge is exactly the same. For a half full bin, the cost is essentially split between disposing of the cardboard and fresh air, which is clearly a total waste of money.
With a cardboard baler, these bins can be removed, and you can instantly see the savings. Baled cardboard can be neatly stacked and collected by a local recycler. Baling your carboard reduced wastes collections which means few refuse lorries having to some to your site. Apart from the financial savings you will also significantly reduce your CO2 with fewer collections.
