With a Bramidan mill-size baler Chicago Tech inc. is greener than ever

In the middle of 2013 Chicago Tech Inc. moved to its new warehouse location in Northbrook, IL. It quickly became obvious to VP of Operations, Dan H. that they needed a solution for disposing of the many boxes they receive every day with IT and telecom hardware.

We chose a vertical baler

While investigating the possible solutions - a dumpster, a compactor, or a vertical baler - Dan H. got in contact with KCS Group, a recycling company out of Kokomo, Indiana. KCS Group went over the different options - and ultimately, Chicago Tech decided for a vertical baler. With this baler the cardboard does not get mixed with other materials, and is the best way to make sure that the cardboard is recycled and does not end in a landfill.

Benefits of baling

The main benefit of baling, aside from the general compaction of the recyclable material, is that Chicago Tech is able to generate a revenue stream by selling the baled cardboard to KCS Group. This means that not only does the company save the alternative compactor or dumpster costs, the added revenue helps keeping the ROI as short as possible. Chicago Tech has aggressive growth plans, and the large Bramidan B6030 baler that makes a bale over 900 lbs will easily be able to accommodate the increased waste flow.

Mill-size baler for large boxes

The B6030 baler was the right machine for Chicago Tech. The large feed opening enables them to dispose of even very large boxes without breaking them down. Additionally, the high safety of the baler, which has no open holes, was a must. The full bale indicator light makes the bale sizes consistent and makes operation of the baler very easy.

The baler came at a great cost compared to others in the market, and it also enabled us to reduce our carbon footprint and minimize the space consumption of recyclables in our warehouse.
