Our balers help Las Vegas compact waste. Do you also want to recycle?
More than 41 million people visit Las Vegas each year. Over 22,000 conventions. Las Vegas is home to more than half of the 20 largest hotels in the world. There are more than 150 casinos and at least 150,000 hotel/motel rooms in the Las Vegas valley area. What all of that translate into is a lot of trash! Although the area is home to one of the largest landfills in North America, keeping trash and recycling manageable while running a casino or hotel is more about efficiency than environment. They use our compactors and balers for efficient compaction and recycling.

Las Vegas city contracts restrict recycling services
The Las Vegas Sun reports that municipal contracts with the main waste-hauler in the region, Republic Services, only guarantees recycling service to single-family homes in Clark County. That means that unless property owners decide to recycle, there are no bins for paper, plastic and metals at apartment complexes, office buildings and businesses.
Environment Nevada advocacy group chief Levi Kamolnick tells the newspaper that with massive landfills and decades of capacity available, it looks like recycling is not a priority for elected officials. Republic Services spokesman Jeremy Walters said the company’s main Apex Regional Landfill near Las Vegas is one of the largest in the country, won’t reach capacity for another 300 years and is cheaper to operate than Republic’s local recycling facility.
Recycling is expensive in Las Vegas
On average, it costs about 75% more for Republic to recycle than to send waste to the landfill, Walters said.
Even with these forces working against recycling, Casinos are finding that Bramidan equipment, like our small B5 baler, and others like it can make the day-to-day sorting and operation of waste & recycling management more economical. By consolidating material as it is collected, the properties can free space and lower pest, odor and injury risks. We hope to help Las Vegas reach its modest goals in the years to come and hope to convince more properties owners that landfilling, even if cheap is not necessarily the right thing or the more efficient thing to do.
