How do cardboard balers work?
Cardboard balers are one of the most useful pieces of equipment for any organisation which is committed to recycling and waste management. The ability to compact cardboard is also important for companies handling large volumes of packaging materials in their daily operations; not least as balers are the ideal way to minimise the impact on storage and handling space.
What does a cardboard baler do?
This popular piece of equipment can handle large amounts of cardboard quickly and relatively effortlessly. The resulting cardboard bale is then much easier to store and transport than loose material.
One of the biggest advantages of this is that baling cardboard helps companies to fulfil their environmental responsibilities. Instead of going to landfill, cardboard packaging can be compacted and sent to be reprocessed.
There are various sizes of cardboard balers, with different capacities and functions – including ones which operate either horizontally or vertically. Selecting the right model ensures that, once in place, it will offer a seamless feed for the volume of cardboard waste you generate.
This blog post provides more details about different types and sizes.
Whichever model you select, the resulting pressed and compacted cardboard bale would be tied off to make it even easier to store efficiently and then move off-site. This can all make your cardboard waste management much cheaper too, with its ease and simplicity.
