With over 90% of all products in the United States being shipped in corrugated boxes, it is not a surprise that old corrugated cardboard (OCC) represents a significant percentage of the solid waste stream. Approximately 90% of OCC packaging coming from the commercial or non-residential sector. Businesses ranging from retail to manufacturing, food service to health care, education to government, all use a great deal of cardboard.
Many businesses find that it is cost effective to bale or compact the cardboard, rather than it taking up space in their dumpsters. Recycling and baling cardboard can become a source of revenue when included as part of a comprehensive waste management system.
Harmony Enterprises Inc.’s staff can help you select the equipment appropriate for your application. We have a large selection of balers ranging from small portable models, such as the M42BC, to large automated baling systems like the T60XDRC.

- Recycling cardboard can create a safer and more efficient work environment for your staff.
