A baler is a recycling equipment that turns scrap into valued commodities. It’s proving to be quite effective for businesses and has a growing popularity.
COSTS & BENEFITS
While balers can range in purchase price from slightly more than $1,000 to hundreds of thousands of dollars, businesses that produce large amounts of traditional recyclables shouldn’t let the price tag scare them away from investing in this equipment.
Long term cost savings
Decent payback time or ROI
Improves overall efficiency
UNDERSTANDING SPACE REQUIREMENTS
Even the smallest balers typically are taller than 4 feet and wider than 31/2 feet. Before adding one to a facility, it helps to know exactly what real estate is available.
Consider the following aspects before picking a spot:
- Proximity to the raw scrap material
- Location of the operating area
- Storage of recyclables
- Space saved due to baler compression
CHOOSING A BALER
Balers are available in a variety of sizes and types, which can be broken down into two main categories:
Vertical balers are found to be more effective in manufacturing, distribution and retail spaces.
Horizontal balers are usually larger, more expensive pieces of equipment. They are typically best for companies that produce more than 100 tons of recyclables per month.
