Cardboard Balers for Recycling

Many businesses generate vast amounts of bulky waste cardboard that often fills up bins and skips. A cardboard Baler can help your business save thousands by enabling you to compact and bale waste cardboard. Once baled the material can be collected for recycling and is often taken away for free. At certain volumes, bales can even start to generate revenue. This reduces the number of costly bin and skip collections required and reduces the amount of cardboard sent to landfill.

Businesses of all sizes can benefit from implementing a baler. We sell and lease machinery capable of producing 25kg bales to 500kg mill sized bales.

Over the past 20 years, we’ve worked with multiple businesses from all sectors across the UK to implement a recycling solution that works for them. On average our customers save thousands of pounds a year.

Discover how much your business could save by arranging a free, no-obligation, on-site audit.

What are the Benefits of Cardboard Balers?


Balers have become increasingly popular across all industries including; retail, restaurants, offices, supermarkets, and warehouses. This is because they offer a host of benefits to businesses including: 

Improved Efficiency 

With no need to handle and flatten endless boxes, staff can spend more time and energy focusing on key business tasks. If you produce large quantities of waste, we can design and install full turn-key systems that feed material directly into the baler via a conveyor belt. 

Cost Savings

Baled cardboard can often be collected for free or at certain volumes can even generate revenue. In addition to this, bulky boxes are removed from bins and skips reducing the need for frequent collections. 

Enhanced Environmental Credentials

Consumer trends are shifting to favour more sustainable businesses. By opting to bale and recycle your waste you reduce the amount sent to landfills and lower your carbon footprint.

Saves Space On-site

Bulky cardboard boxes take up a lot of valuable space and not only make a business look untidy but can also be a health hazard. A cardboard Baler can keep your site clear and enables you to keep on top of your waste. 

Case Study

One such business that has benefitted greatly from installing a Baler is a food distributor based in Norwich. You can read the full case study here.  

“The baler works just how described and it’s amazing how many boxes the baler will take before it’s full. The baler saves me significant time as well as being more environmentally friendly.”

– Martin Mather, Director


Purchasing a Cardboard Baler

We sell and lease hire over 30 different models of cardboard Baler. No matter how big or small your business is, we’ve got a machine suitable for you. We offer competitive prices and provide an excellent level of service and customer support. Many of our vertical Balers can be trialed for 14 days, completely free of charge. If you’re not sure what type of machine your business needs, try our product finder or arrange a free on-site audit.

Hiring a Cardboard Baler

Despite the numerous environmental and financial benefits, for many businesses it can be difficult to raise the capital required to purchase a Baler outright – that’s why leasing a machine is often the best option. Leasing equipment with us is a straightforward procedure. The first step is organising an onsite audit to determine what machinery is best for your specific business requirements. We then draw up a proposal outlining our recommendations and a suitable payment plan.  On receiving your completed rental form we then deliver, install, and provide free training for your system.

Refurbished Machines

In addition to selling brand new machines, we also sell a number of refurbished cardboard Balers. These are restored to a very high standard and can be a very cost-effective route of satisfying your waste management requirements.

Baler Maintenance

Our machines are designed and built to last, but over time they will sustain some heavy usage. In order to ensure your machine is operating correctly and continues to do so throughout its life, it’s absolutely vital that you regularly service your machine. We have an extensive team of certified electronic and hydraulic engineers that are capable of servicing any Baler in line with the manufacturer’s guidance to ensure its continued operation.

Cardboard Baler Frequently Asked Questions

Balers enable you to place waste material into a chamber. Once full the machine deploys a powerful compaction ram applying several tonnes of pressure to compact the material. This process is completed multiple times until a full bale is ejected from the machine.

Recycling Balers and waste compactors can be used in almost every industry. Including retailers, supermarkets, manufactures, distribution centres, hotels, logistic centres, and more. Even the smallest of businesses can benefit from a Baler.

All types of cardboard can be baled; boxes, flattened or shredded provided the cardboard isn’t wet or heavily contaminated with plastics.

Both machines aim to minimise the amount of space waste takes up. However, they typically process different materials. Balers are perfect for compacting dry waste recyclables. If your business produces a sufficient stream of these materials then a Baler could be a suitable option. However, if your business produces a high volume of mixed general waste then a Compactor may be required.  To learn more, read our full-length article covering this topic.

Depending on the model, bales can weigh anywhere between 25kg and 500kg.

The price per ton can vary depending on a number of factors. Larger, mill sized bales generate the highest level of rebate for your material. However, small quantities are often collected for free. We have a network of service providers that can arrange the collection of your cardboard.


Depending on the retailer, the cost of a Cardboard Baler can range between anything from £3500 – £100,000. The final price will depend on many factors and if additional equipment, such as conveyor belts etc. is required as part of the setup. Many customers opt to lease their Cardboard Balers rather than purchasing outright.
