What is a Large Volume for Recycling Balers
The volume that is considered “large” for recycling balers can vary, depending on the specific type of baler and the materials being baled. However, in general, a recycling baler that can handle at least 1,000 pounds of material per hour can be considered a large-volume baler.
For example, in the case of cardboard, a horizontal recycling baler that can handle 10 to 20 tons of material per month can be considered a large-volume baler. Similarly, for plastic bottles, a baler that can handle 1 to 2 tons of material per day can be considered a large-volume baler.
It’s important to note that the size and capacity of a recycling baler should be matched to the specific needs and volume of materials generated by a business or organization. In some cases, smaller balers may be more appropriate, while in other cases, larger balers may be necessary to handle high volumes of materials.
