Waste Balers for Garden Centres & Hardware Stores

Choosing the Right Cardboard & Plastic Baler for your Garden Centre or Hardware Store

The do-it-yourself (DIY) retail market is predicted to see healthy growth worldwide over the next decade. If you manage or own a garden centre or a hardware store, now is the time to take a look at how you manage your waste.

As consumer demand increases, the amount of packaging coming into your shops will swiftly follow. Even as suppliers switch to more sustainable packing, your waste streams only change form. Most garden centres and hardware stores meet a point where installing a waste baler is a key requirement to help them manage their waste.

Better waste management will prepare your business for growth

Too often, waste management remains an afterthought; however, there are a lot of hidden costs associated with a hands-off waste management approach. You’ll spend more on disposal fees, lose vital stockroom space that could be used for more product, and increase the risk of injuries to your staff and customers as well as product breakages.

Waste balers, including cardboard and plastic balers, simplify recycling waste management.

When you have a waste baler, you will:

  • Reduce the ever-growing costs of waste disposal through eliminating gate fees, increasing recycling compliance, and fewer vehicle movements
  • Open up new opportunities for revenue growth, through improving use of storage space or with customer recycling programs
  • Save time and boost productivity by making recycling waste easy to manage and store
  • Improve your recycling rates to meet company goals and attract customers

Improved waste management is about more than breaking down boxes faster. The implications for your business could better prepare you for a decade of growth.
