Installing a recycling machine at your business will benefit the way you and your staff handle waste materials. All cardboard and plastic can be compacted into bales with a recycling machine, which has many advantages over the ‘traditional’ waste management method of bin disposal.
The key results of installing a recycling machine are that it will save money, space and time on waste. Disposing of recyclables in a recycling machine means these materials no longer need to enter any bins, so they can be removed from the premises. This then reduces the cost of renting and emptying bins. Baled material will be collected on a regular basis by a local recycler.
Space can also be saved – most recycling machines have a smaller footprint than one large wheelie bin. Removing these bins creates more room on site to move around and the additional space could also form an alternative storage or seating area. Replacing bins with a recycling machine will also make the premises look tidier, which gives off a positive impression on the general public, health and safety inspectors, visitors and staff.
There is then the time saving aspect of a recycling machine compared to bins. Bins are often stored outside as they take up too much space indoors; this requires a short walk to dispose of waste each time. A recycling machine can be situated indoors or outdoors, so really as close to the waste source as possible. Whole cardboard boxes can also be placed in the machine so there is no requirement to flat-pack it to save on space, which is often a necessity with bins as whole cardboard is such a voluminous waste type.
Lastly there is the opportunity to significantly increase your green credentials with the installation of a recycling machine. This method of waste disposal shows you are committed to helping the environment by recycling rather than sending your recyclables to landfill.
