Cardboard Balers - Compacting Know-how

Are you looking for a way to solve your cardboard recycling problems? Then a cardboard baler maybe right for you and your business.

Cardboard is the most common type of material processed in one of our Orwak compactors and balers. Empty boxes contain a lot of air and are compacted easily. The volume reduction is up to 10:1 when the card is fed into one of our larger balers.

The benefits of baling cardboard are endless and every business usually has a unique set of reasons for wanting it. These include making money, house keeping, time saving, health and safety.

Typically this waste stream can be collected free of charge, or if baled in a mill size baler (Orwak 3620 and 3820) then maximum value rebate can be expected.

Compaction ratio: 5:1-10:1                      Bale weight: 50-500 kg
