Just about every business of any size encounters waste cardboard at some point in their operations. This material is found just about everywhere, and it is used for a whole range of different purposes. Once you have used a piece of cardboard, storing it away can be a real challenge.

Recycling machinery, such as cardboard balers and compactors can help to solve this problem, making it much easier to store your cardboard without taking up valuable space. Alongside this, they can also reduce the risk of fires and injuries in your business, as they will keep the place a lot tidier and make it harder for flames to catch.

What Is A Cardboard Baler?

A cardboard baler is a relatively simple machine which only has a handful of moving parts. They usually consist of a concealed area for the cardboard to sit inside, a large plate which will press down on the materials inside, and a set of doors to keep the whole operation safe. Many will also include channels which are designed for binding string which is used to make your bales retain their shape once the machine has done its work.

Cardboard balers can crush materials like cardboard into far smaller pieces than humans are able to. The weight which is pressing down on the cardboard boxes and materials can be up to several tons, making it just about impossible for air bubbles to form and waste space in your buildings.

How can a Cardboard Baler help your business?

Buying or hiring a cardboard baler can feel like a big commitment, and a lot of companies are unsure about the value of a machine like this. In reality, though, they can help your business to a huge degree. To start with, they will keep your cardboard contained preventing it from taking up a lot of space within your business.

Cardboard balers can also make your business safer. Loose cardboard can create slip and trip hazards, often causing employees to hurt themselves while on the job. This can be bad news for both your employees and your business, making it worth looking at cardboard balers to keep your team safe from accidents.

Our cardboard collection service requires that cardboard be baled before we collect it. This ensures that we can fill our trucks properly, while also enabling you to get rid of as much cardboard as possible in one trip. Most cardboard collection companies will ask you to do this, making it worth looking at a baler no matter how you get rid of your cardboard. We offer baler rental services as well as opportunities for your very own baler purchase.
