Does your company use compaction equipment before sending waste and recycling products off site?
Though this process involves the use of capital equipment, the costs involved are often offset by a significant reduction in transport related costs.
Further, reduced transport also means a reduction in the related carbon emission.
Companies not using equipment such as balers and compactors to reduce the volume of waste and recycling, may pay up to three times more for related transport costs.
These costs may be even higher when using highly compactable materials such as cardboard and plastic.
Compacting can halve the carbon generated from the process of transporting waste and recycling off site to another treatment facility. This takes into account power usage required to compact the waste.
Free trials are often available. This involves an initial audit of a facility’s current waste and recycling generation processes.
The amount of waste is matched with an appropriately sized baler to suit the facility. Companies are given a summary of reductions that can be achieved during a two-week trial period.
