Why pay to have valuable recyclables collected for disposal, when you could retain the revenue on the material for yourself?
If your organisation generates volumes of cardboard or plastics like shrink wrap and plastic bottles then you could benefit financially and operationally by using a baler. Cardboard attracts rebates of up to £70 a tonne when baled in a mill-size baler. Plastics rebates are much higher at £80 to £200 plus depending on volume and type.
Yet too many organisations are still paying transport costs to have cardboard and plastic removed and giving the revenue to the collector. You need enough material, for the rebates to be worthwhile (generally at least a skip's worth a week), but you should aim to keep the revenue for yourself.
Paper mills want cardboard bales in 'mill sizes' which means they must weigh at least 450kg to attract the highest value. Smaller bales from smaller balers have to be broken apart and re-baled which is why their value is much lower, or non-existent.
Plastics however, do not need to be in 'mill-sized' bales. But you can use your mill-size baler to bale your plastics too. Plastics like shrink wrap have a much higher value than cardboard.
