• Utilizing a baler helps compact the amount of waste and recycled materials generated by the daily operations of a business. Compacting waste can save that business money and free up space. By compacting materials, balers help businesses generate extra income from spending less on waste removal. Balers also take up less space than storing the materials until they are picked up by a waste and recycle service. This also creates a safer working environment for employees.

    When deciding on the perfect baler for your business the three most important determining factors are: The volume of recycled material your business will be producing, the size of that material, and the type of materials you will be recycling.

    Baler Types:

    - Horizontal Balers: These balers are ideal for businesses with higher production rates and need a baler to compress bulky and large quantities of recyclable materials. The most efficient balers, horizontal models are loaded at the top and compress side to side and usually operate automatically.

    - Vertical Balers: Vertical balers are most common amongst businesses that need to recycle a variety of materials such as clothing, cardboard, plastic, etc.  These balers are loaded from the top and compress materials from top to bottom. Ideal for smaller businesses such as grocery stores, vertical balers produce lower volumes of recycled materials and can be easily operated by one person.

    Balers are a great and effective way for a business to reduce the cost of the removal of their waste and recycled materials. Horizontal and vertical balers are the most common type of balers; however there are other types of balers available that come in a variety of sizes and capabilities. Such balers include cross cylinder balers, coconut fiber balers, and textile balers.
