Cardboard balers today are important because cardboard waste is very common in most businesses. It is extensively used for packaging and it is hard to avoid. Gradeall supply its balers to shops, warehouses, manufacturing facilities, hotels, hospitals helping them to deal with waste cardboard.
Rather than have piles of old waste cardboard our range of balers allow loose cardboard to be turned into dense, easy to manage bales. From the 50Kg G-eco 50 machines to the 750 bales the horizontal GH600 can produce, Gradeall has balers to deal with all volumes of cardboard in sizes to suit space requirements.
Cardboard can be left loose, thrown into a skip or a compactor, however, we feel these options are not as good as a baler.
Cardboard is a valuable recycling commodity, so we always advise our customers to choose a baler for cardboard, our compactors can deal with cardboard. However, the cardboard is still loose in this state, because it would ultimately require further processing which is typically baling it does not have the value of a cardboard bale.

A baler is much better for cardboard because:
Our horizontal range of balers offers the flexibility of a static compactor with things such as tipping skip hoppers, chute/conveyor feed, or bin lifts. These large balers are ideal if you deal with very high levels of cardboard waste.
Contact us at Gradeall and we can arrange a site audit to evaluate what would be the best machine from our range of cardboard balers for your business. We will be able to calculate for you how much installing and using a cardboard baler will save on waste management costs. After the initial investment has been covered cardboard bales can generate a revenue.
"We have a Gradeall GV500 baler installed to deal with the cardboard boxes generated in our supermarket. Before we had to pay to have the loose cardboard collected, the yard behind the shop was cluttered and if a collection didnt happen it was a lot of hassle . Now with the baler installed we keep on top of our cardboard waste, bales can be stacked easily and it is easier to find collectors willing to buy the bales from us."
