Common ask questions…
What are you recycling, or baling?
Much depends on what you are baling, or planning to bale to generate a Return On Investment (ROI). Typically cardboard, white office paper/ ledger, shrink wrap/ soft plastics are the most common recycled products placed in bales. This is usually post use retail environments, but industrial and commercial applications can generate pre and post use waste that needs recycled. Specialty material may be generated that needs a special consideration.
Size does matter, at least when it comes to bales it does. Because of cost of shipping, and processing most recycle plants/ mills want bales over 700lb. This typically means a 60” baler, but manufacturers make 48” balers that can make what is called a “mill size bale” .

Return On Investment, ROI
A new machine can easily last 20 years with general maintenance, a refurbished unit can go 10 plus years. Two bales per week and recycle bin savings can give you a ROI less than 2 years with a new baler. That means an estimated $100,000 profit for the life of the machine.

What is your Volume of recyclable product?
The volume of product can make you upscale to a horizontal baler. A variety of recyclables may make you look at a 2 ram baler.
