Recycle More Efficiently By Choosing Action Compaction Equipment

Recycling Balers Located in Salt Lake City, OC Tanner is a global company that helps other companies build good relationships with their employees through recognition awards. Business is booming, and with that comes more work to be done at their Utah complex.

OC Tanner used to use a vertical baler to bale their endless supply of cardboard. That set-up used a lot of man hours to get the job done. However, they’re very excited to be having a ribbon-cutting ceremony on their new “Dual Chute Conveyor Fed Compactor System.”

OC Tanner connected with the people at Action Compaction Equipment of Midvale, Utah, to figure out how they could save time, money and effort with a new system to recycle cardboard. The dual-chute system will “pay for the entire system in less than a year and a half and we’re excited to get it started,” according to a Lean Improvement Team Foreman from OC Tanner.

When a company has a large quantity and volume of material to process per hour, conveyor-fed compactors work better than balers. The more streamlined system helps increase efficiency and productivity.

When Does it Make Sense to Purchase a Compactor or a Baler?

BalerAre you dealing with waste in a way that effectively saves time and money? Ask yourself this: “Do I have to have my dumpster picked up several times a week?” If the answer is “yes” then you should consider using a compactor or baler.

Compactors take a bunch of unsorted, mixed trash and “compact it” so it takes up a lot less space. If you have a lot of waste, consider a conveyor-fed compactor.

Balers are often used for sorted recyclable waste, like paper, cardboard or plastics. Hand-fed balers are often used for smaller sizes and volumes.

If you currently have trash being picked up four times a week, a compactor can reduce that pick-up to just one time a week. Furthermore, baling items into pallet sized squares is a smart way to sell (and send) them to companies who will pay for materials like used plastics, which can be re-used for other products. Companies are expected to be “green” these days, and balers help them smartly reach recycling goals.

Compactors and balers also improve sanitation efforts by keeping trash securely confined. Have you ever seen overstuffed dumpsters with all sorts of loose trash blowing around? That’s not a very appealing sight (or smell) for customers of restaurants, hotels or other businesses.
