Benefits of a baling cardboard with a vertical baler

Cardboard or plastic is a rather voluminous and space-consuming waste stream, for instance, cardboard boxes. To reduce transportation costs, and thus waste expenses for your company, it is worthwhile to compress cardboard beforehand. Compact cardboard or plastic bales have a much smaller footprint, which requires less floor space in your company.

Additionally, compressed bales are much more efficient to transport for waste collection companies because they can collect more weight in a more compact form. In summary, a vertical baler is beneficial for the environment and for company finances.

A vertical cardboard baler can reduce the volume of cardboard by up to 95%.
