A Good Investment

Every business situation is unique. So when it comes to the materials needed to get started, each business might be looking for something slightly different than the standard and traditional options. For example, balers can be quite useful in all sorts of businesses from farming to restaurants to retail. Yet, not all of these will want large standard horizontal balers. For restaurants and retail, vertical balers will be of more use. And depending on the size of the business, whether it is corporate or a small hometown business, a used vertical baler might be the better option. Continue reading

Good As New

Many are not quite ready for buying a baler. While they can see the many benefits to having one, the fact is they are still very large and if you do not have a ton of items to bale, they may not seem completely worth the large initial investment. Yes it will cut down on space wasted by having a billion empty boxes stacked in the corner, but it will also take up a lot of space on its own. The average baler is huge and designed to process large amounts of heavy products.

Vertical balers are typically used in industries and facilities that produce smaller amounts of waste. They often deal with materials that are lighter in both density and volume. Because vertical balers tend to be more compact than their horizontal counterparts, they are more suited for these types of functions. Continue reading

Utilize a Vertical Baler Before the Boxes Stack Up

One of my favorite things is when a new package comes in the mail. For me, it does not happen terribly often, usually just when I order something whether it is books or clothes. But occasionally there will be a surprise package from a friend or relative that can make you incredibly excited. And while for me this might just be an occasional occurrence, for those with businesses, or possibly slight shopping addictions, packages might be a little more common. Many businesses receive several packages a day. So what happens to all of these old boxes? They begin to stack up. Owners are forced to decide if they should keep them or recycle. While we can hope the choice will be to recycle, either way the boxes will quickly fill up whatever dumpster they are in because of their large and bulky shape. Is there a solution for this nightmare? Continue reading
