Turning Your Liability into Your Asset – Business Benefits of Using Quality Balers - News

Quality Baler


There are numerous business benefits when you choose to employ an on-site waste baler.

For the commercial sector and the Australian government – reduce, reuse, and recycle has become a major priority. In order to manage their waste and optimise their resource efficiency – commercial establishments are looking for green ways. To dispose trash safely and save big on landfill tax – balers are an easy and cost-effective solution.

There are a host of benefits for businesses who use recycling and effective waste management practices. Furthermore, businesses have to comply with stringent recycling regulations, after the increasing and compelling demands from the government.

What are the basic differences between balers and compactors?

In order to help with easy sorting, collection, storage and bundling – balers are perfect. They efficiently condense industrial waste into compact refuse. Relating to the average volume of waste generated there is a plethora of baler designs to suit your specific business needs.

Balers allow you to enhance your green efforts and streamline your waste. In addition, they can also bring down your landfill fees and disposal costs significantly.

Compactors are the ideal solution and are designed to crush solid waste into a small compact mass that will easily fit into waste bins. For companies that generate large volumes of waste on a daily basis, trash compactors make a suitable and practical option.

Any company that intends to reduce its carbon footprint, minimise their volume of waste, and preserve the environment – a compactor makes a brilliant addition.

So, how do balers operate as a resourceful waste management solution?

In any scenario, a baler can be rented or owned as well.

With a baler, a business can manage its commercial waste by placing it into a hopper. Later the waste accumulates in a chamber and then it is switched on. The plates crush all of the waste that is present in the baler and it moves down to the bottom.

For easy handling and transportation, the crushed bundle is then bound by wires. Depending on the end use there are numerous makes and models available in the market.

Solid waste such as plastic cans, cardboards, and tins are crushed by balers. The different kinds of commercial wastes that can be crushed in a baler are: drums, paper, plastic, trays and containers, PET bottles and production waste.

What are some of major benefits of balers?

They bring considerable cost savings on taxes and waste collection – because balers are a brilliant source of quick returns on investment. In addition, they offer a fuss-free solution to staying compliant and also prevent the issues that arise due to cross-contamination.

More benefits include:

  • Receive good returns from recycling companies that create waste streams
  • Eco-friendly companies benefit greatly – once they earn the trust and preference of their customers
  • Not to be consumed by a large volume of waste and recycling, they assist with saving plenty of space
  • Minimize health hazards
  • Even with a limited budget they are easily bought, rented, or refurbished
  • Sorting waste for recycling gets easy

Myths that surround the idea of baling

Balers are considered dangerous:

No, it is not true as balers are very safe. The ones that are not safe and have negative reports tied to them are models that are 20 to 30 years old.

Presently, the top loading balers can now be fitted with a safety gate. They are also safer than a forklift or lift truck. Regular maintenance ensures that a baler is working properly and safely.

Is it time consuming to tie a bale?

On average, tying a bale takes only 3 minutes and 8 minutes for someone who’s new at it. It is not 30 minutes as this is a misconception.

Before they can be picked up – is there a need to store a “truckload” of bales?

No. When there are less than 12 bales, most customers initiate the bale pickups. It takes up about one standard size parking space.

Is there an increase in labour?

No it does not. But it does take time to handle the waste.

When compared to throwing material away in a skipbin baling takes up less time, especially, when it comes to flattening of the boxes. When manually employing a front loading baler – stacking and flattening of boxes helps produce a labour saving of 50%. When you compare a front loading waste baler to an open top baler, the latter will help reduce the labour cost by 300%.
