Ambitious mandatory recycling targets coupled with the continually rising costs associated with sending business waste to landfill has lead to a situation whereby more and more business owners are having to take a long hard look at their approach to waste management.
Identifying greener and more sustainable ways to dispose of business waste is no longer the sort of issue that business owners can afford to ignore…
Baling Your Business Waste
The majority of materials can be recycled and in an ideal world, recyclable materials would never be sent to landfill to decompose slowly.
Using a baler to compress and bale waste materials neatly is an efficient way to add value to your waste stream, as once baled your waste is ready to be collected for recycling and depending on the type of material, your baled waste can achieve an attractive market value per tonne.
Selling your baled business waste makes far more sense than paying to have it collected and sent to landfill through the more traditional and less sustainable routes.
Many different types of materials can be successfully baled, for processing at a recycling plant including:
The Benefits For Your Business
The benefits to the environment are clear but businesses also benefit a great deal themselves when they opt to bale and recycle a large percentage of their waste stream.
Businesses who wish to incorporate a baler into their waste management strategy can purchase new or reconditioned equipment, rent the equipment they need or alternatively they can look for a suitable scheme like our Recycle Buy.
The Recycle Buy scheme enables businesses to gain access to a suitable baler, free of charge in exchange for baled materials. For more information about the Recycle Buy scheme and further options, why not get in touch with one of our friendly members of staff.
Rather than paying in excess of £80 per tonne to send your waste to landfill you could be baling and selling it for anything up to £200 per tonne.
When you look at the figures and examine your options more closely, balers clearly save business money. Put like that it appears to a bit of a no brainer really!
