FAQ's - In general

Answers to general questions we hear most often:

By compacting your recyclable waste, like cardboard and soft plastic, in a vertical baler, you can significantly reduce waste handling costs at your facility.

You will also reduce the overall volume of waste, removing the need to rent containers and allowing for less pickups. You save space in your facility, improve internal logistics and create a more efficient work flow.

Contact us today to discuss how we can help you find a baler solution that's right for you.

The type of waste handling equipment you need depends on a number of different factors: The amount of waste you generate on a daily basis, as well as the waste type. Another factor to consider is the amount of space you have in your facility.

The right waste solution should be tailored to your company’s structure and internal work processes to ensure a perfect fit.
