Waterlox Coatings Corporation finds a way to reduce waste hauling costs


“We purchased the HSM ProfiPack P425 via Recycling.com. We receive a lot of raw materials in cardboard boxes and I’d rather turn that cardboard into packing material.”

Waterlox Company - testimonial

Conor told us that the company is looking for a solution to re-purpose their cardboard waste. Next to that, they want to reduce their costs on cardboard waste hauling as well. 

“Hence, we receive a lot of raw materials in cardboard boxes that we break down and have recycled in a dumpster. We typically use shredded paper from old records as void fill and packaging material, but continual automation and use of computers as well as increases in orders have cut down on our yearly shreds production.” 

The buying process and solution approach

With his needs and request on Recycling.com, we send him a good comprehensive list of vendors and options. After consideration and consulting, Conor has chosen the HSM ProfiPack P425 cardboard shredder.

“The buying process went very smoothly and simply. We’ve received prompt responses from vendors, which makes our decision very easy. We chose the P425 (single-phase) because of the lowest cost. ”

The entire purchase process was rated with an 8 out of 10.

The ProfiPack P425 transforms multi-layers of discarded cardboard into padding mats or padding filling materials.

“The ProfiPack P425 meets 100% of my expectations and it is excellent. So far, we have spent ~ $100 a month on packaging material. With the cardboard shredder, we want to earn back our investment on the P425 within two years or more.”  said Conor.
