Waste Management Solutions for Managing Paper Waste
We offer a free consultation and evaluation of current spending to businesses that are looking to reduce costs.
Paper making is an ancient technology, but paper products are still incredibly useful and necessary today. Made from the pulp of wood, grasses, or other fibrous materials, paper is used in everything from newspapers to packaging materials to personal hygiene and cleaning products.
Paper Waste by the Numbers
In 2017, paper products including food packaging, newspapers, and cardboard materials made up the largest component of municipal solid waste in the U.S. (67 tons), according to the EPA. Nearly 70 percent of this was recycled—the highest recycling rate of all municipal solid waste.
Recycling paper saves landfill space, reduces energy and water consumption, and reduces greenhouse gases.
Get Paper Waste Under Control and Improve Recycling Rates with a Paper Baler
The average business generates tons of paper waste every year. Most of it comes from shredded documents, packaging, paper bags, newspapers, and magazines.
Investing in a paper baler can help you efficiently manage paper waste and even cut costs. Balers are easy to operate and create compact bales that take up less space. Fewer truckloads to the recycling plant means you save on hauling costs. And, bales are less likely to end up in a landfill, since they’re more desirable for businesses in the market for recyclable materials.
Vertical balers are ideal for businesses like restaurants, retailers, and supermarket that have smaller quantities of paper waste to manage. Horizontal balers are best suited for manufacturing plants and distribution centers that deal with large amounts of waste paper.
Responsibly managing paper waste is good for the environment, your bottom line, and your business image.
