Aluminum Cans

Empty aluminum cans can advantageously be compressed in a baler. Our X-Series balers are a good choice because of the high press force and long stroke.

To ensure the stability of the finished bale, you can put a layer of cardboard in the bottom and top of the bale. At times, wrapping the finished bale with stretch film may be a good idea.

Empty food cans


Empty cans and metal containers can be difficult to compact; therefore, you need a strong machine. The press plate must penetrate deep into the material to achieve a stable bale that can be held together; thus having a long stroke. All of the balers in our X Series have this.

Place a layer of cardboard on the bottom and top of the bale to ensure the stability of the finished bale.

Red oil drums

Drums and buckets

Steel drums or metal buckets are used for oil and paint, for example. Empty steel drums often take up a lot of space. If the drums are collected in containers for disposal, this means transporting a lot of empty air.

You can instead compact drums and metal buckets in our drum press. This makes them completely flat so they can be stacked, and therefore only occupy minimal space.
