Is it possible to use the same baler for both plastic and cardboard?

Plastic and cardboard are the most common recyclable materials produced. Generally speaking, balers can handle both plastic and cardboard waste in the same baling machine.

A cardboard baler can bale plastic, but not all plastic baler can bale cardboard.

Although, it is not possible to use both materials at the same time, but it is recommendable to bale cardboard first. In the meantime, you can collect plastic waste and once the cardboard bale is ejected, you can begin to fill plastic into the chamber.

We advise you to consider in advance whether you would prefer to look for a machine that can compress both materials into bale or only one of the waste streams.

Can you mix different kinds of plastics in a baler?

There are different kinds of plastic, and it is not possible to mix them in a plastic baler at the same time to be recycled.

Accordingly, each of the types has different properties and melts at different temperatures. Also, just because they have the same resin number doesn’t mean that they can be mixed together. The reason is simply because of the chemical combinations that react differently when they are melted down for recycling.

During the recycling process at facilities, plastics are sorted into types because it is essential. Thus, there are two common methods to perform the process:
