When it comes to the handling of waste and recycling for your business, several factors contribute to the overall impact on your bottom line. Many business owners and managers struggle with the challenges that these elements present on a daily basis. These include the more obvious costs related to capital expenditures of necessary equipment, as well as the monthly expenses of waste hauling or employee time involved with waste operations.
One aspect of waste and recycling that is often overlooked includes the baler and compactor accessories needed for your equipment. Items such as oil, oil filters, baling wire, and trash bags may seem inconsequential to your operation or bottom line, but the truth is, they have a direct impact on both of them.
Preventive Maintenance is necessary to ensure the life and reliability of your baler or compactor. Knowing when and how to replace key accessories is only one part of this preventative maintenance. Understanding the specific type of oil, filters, wire, or waste bags needed for your particular piece of equipment and application is vital to your success and your costs.
Baler and Compactor Accessories
Oil for Balers & Compactors
One of the most common misconceptions with oil is that there is a “one size fits all” solution for your equipment. Your equipment may require a different viscosity of oil for efficient operation depending on the following: how many times per day the machine cycles, the pressure with which it operates, and the ambient temperature all play a role in the breakdown of this oil. By selecting the right grade and quantity of oil, your recycling and waste equipment will operate more efficiently and you will have to replace it less often. Keeping ahead of scheduled oil changes and replacement of filters will increase the life of your equipment and save you money over time.
Your finished bales of cardboard, plastic, aluminum or paper can come in different shapes and sizes. This depends on the products that are baled and the specifications of your baling equipment. Different applications and different bale sizes will require different wire gauges and amounts of wire per bale. A mill-sized bale created by a Harmony PERF-SSHB Gen2, for example, will require a different amount of wire for an aluminum bale versus a bale made of PET. This is vital for safety concerns, such as ease of handling and potential breakage. This is also important to know when re-ordering quantities of the wire. Not ordering the right size of wire or in quantities that make the most sense for your application can significantly cut into your budget over time.

Trash Bags for Compactors
Trash bags are a comactor accessory and also a source of waste in and of themselves. They are necessary to remove waste from containers usually found in smaller applications. The amount of bags your business uses, and proportionally the amount of bags that end up in the landfill, can be greatly reduced by using an automatic compactor such as the Harmony SmartPack or Indoor Power Packer models.
Businesses can save money by maximizing the capacity of the correct size and quality bag in every container. They can also help their bottom line by streamlining their employee efforts in emptying these containers on a “just in time” basis.
