Can you get money for cardboard?
Cardboard is one of the most common types of waste produced by businesses. With a constant stream of stock and materials being delivered in cardboard, it can be incredibly difficult to eliminate this source of waste. Packaging can very quickly begin to clog up bins, skips, and storerooms and before you know it you’re drowning in a sea of cardboard. Instead of paying good money to dispose of this waste stream, you may be surprised to discover that you can actually make money from waste cardboard.
The solution is simple; when waste cardboard is generated simply place it into a Cardboard Baler. This machine will deploy a powerful compaction ram to crush cardboard and generate a bale of cardboard. The machines come in many shapes and sizes, with the smallest creating 25kg bales all the way up to 500kg. For many businesses, a Vertical Baler is a great solution for their requirements, due to its small footprint and ability to be located inside or out. They are incredibly safe to operate and can be conveniently located where waste is generated to achieve greater efficiencies.
“Not only has it saved space and costs but the system is easy to use for our staff. We were also very surprised with the excellent rebates.”
Phil Race, Site Services Manager
Depending on the size and volume of bales created, you’ll be able to sell them to a recycling company that will collect the cardboard and take it for processing. Even the smallest bales of cardboard can be collected for free. At the time of writing, a tonne of Cardboard is worth up to £125 and you’ll be amazed at how quickly cardboard accumulates. A Baler also removes the requirement to flat-pack boxes, which not only saves time but frees up valuable space in your business.
