Baler Solutions for Intermediate Bulk Storage Container Disposal

Baler Solutions for Intermediate Bulk Storage Container Disposal

Due to their high-strength and affordability, many manufacturers use intermediate bulk storage containers at their facilities to store and move large volumes of liquids and chemicals.

At the end of their life-cycle, these plastic containers can be washed, shredded, baled and sold to recyclers, and their steel cages can be sold as scrap metal – generating additional revenue for the customer’s business.

Whether you’re looking to buy, rent or lease, we’re experts and helping customers select the ideal baler to meet their intermediate bulk storage container recycling needs. Take a look at how we recently helped one of our large customers.

The Opportunity

To improve plant efficiencies and bolster their sustainability efforts, a large chemical company reached out to Ely Enterprises to discuss potential baler solutions for their spent intermediate bulk storage containers. Without a baler, their disposal process was cumbersome, time-consuming and expensive.

The Solution

During our consultations with the chemical company, we evaluated their operations and customized a baler solution to meet their specific volume and budget requirements. While vertical balers are ideal for low volume operations where the intermediate bulk storage containers can be compressed and palletized, this customer required a horizontal baler. These balers are capable of shredding and bundling larger quantities of recyclable waste at higher rates of speed.

The Result

Following the installation of their new baler, the customer began to realize a number of significant benefits, including:

  • Increased operational efficiencies
  • Lower waste removal expenses
  • Added revenue from recyclable HDPE containers
  • Supported environmental sustainability efforts
