How QCR Balers Can Help You Reach Your Waste Management Goals
29th Jul 2020
In a world where we are all trying to operate in a more environmentally friendly manner, we still haven’t been able to find a more eco-friendly, cost-effective way of packaging items. It is therefore important that businesses find the best ways to manage their cardboard waste properly.
Here at QCR, we have the perfect solution. Our recycling balers offer you a way to neatly dispose of your waste cardboard, saving space, time, and money, while allowing the cardboard to be collected easily by recycling companies.
What is a cardboard baler?
A cardboard baler is a piece of machinery that crushes cardboard waste down into a compact bale, that can then be tied together ready for collection. The cardboard can be fed directly into the baler without the need to break it down. Here at QCR, we have a range of sizes to suit the different demands and necessities of any business.
How can a cardboard baler save my business space?
There are two ways that one of our cardboard balers can save your business space:
- Cardboard waste is bulky and bins take up a lot of space. If you have a cardboard recycling bin, they fill up quickly, meaning that excess cardboard will be left outside the bin, which is messy and wastes space. A baler will compact cardboard into bales, reducing the amount of room needed for your business recycling, and then can be neatly stacked ready for collection.
- Cardboard recycling bins are big and bulky, even if all of your cardboard waste can fit inside. A baler, on the other hand, can be much smaller (according to your specific needs), saving you space overall.
How can a cardboard baler save me time?
The process of breaking down cardboard once that it has been used, then walking it out to the recycling bin, can be very time consuming, especially if there is a lot of it. And that time should be spent on tasks which are more constructive for your business.
With a cardboard baler, cardboard can be put straight into the machine without needing to break it down, disposing of it quickly and easily.
How can a cardboard baler save me money?
Ensuring that what you do is cost-effective is vital when considering the success of your business. Buying or hiring a cardboard baler can help your business save money when it comes to your disposing cardboard waste.
Reducing the number of bins that you need will save you money. Renting a fully maintain baler is more cost effective then bins and skips.
How can having a cardboard baler help my company to be greener?
Gone are the days of chucking all of our rubbish into landfill sites. Businesses today need to be conscious of how they dispose of their waste and try to recycle as much as possible. By baling your excess cardboard, you can make it quick and easy to be collected by recycling companies.
The ability to turn it into neat, compact, and stackable bales means that you can store them more efficiently while reducing the number of collections your business needs. Therefore, you can help reduce the number of trips being carried out by polluting trucks.
Here at QCR, we believe that baling your cardboard waste could decrease your emissions by about 75%.
There are several reasons why hiring one of our cardboard balers can be beneficial for your business. Saving space, time, and money are all critical to your business’ success, as well as implementing environmental practices.
