Waste management in a production facility - why can this be problematic?

In production facilities, employees deal with different types of waste every day. This can often be a logistical challenge to manage.

Post-production waste can create many problems due to:

  • stopThe large quantities and often large size of fractions - the waste can be heavy and bulky
  • stopConstant involvement of employees in collecting, transporting and storing the waste within the company    
  • stopRestrictive recycling regulations - the disposal of cardboard, plastic, foil and other plastics requires sorting and appropriate storage
  • stopDifficulty with keeping workplaces clean and tidy
  • stopHigh costs associated with waste collection and disposal

The Bramidan range of balers for cardboard, plastic, foil and other recyclable materials will solve these challenges. We sell many models of vertical and horizontal balers. In terms of design, size and functionality, our machinery makes it easy to seamlessly match your needs with the space in which it will operate. Our high quality balers can be purchased, rented, or financed.

  • stopReduce the amount of space required for waste storage
  • stopReduce costs of transportation of post-production waste within the facility - the baler is installed directly at waste source, e.g. alongside the production line
  • stopImproved workflow, e.g. quick removal of loose waste
