Do you need a Vertical Baler?

Do you ever think what getting a Vertical Baler could do for your facility?  Below I have outlined reasons why a vertical baler may be the right unit for your operation.

Vertical Balers are the perfect fit for a facility with limited floor space; most only taking up a small amount of footage.

Vertical Balers are perfect for:


  • Retail Stores
  • Warehouses
  • Distribution Centers
  • Many Industrial Facilities

Vertical Balers are the ideal for a facility that only processes a small amount of material.

Vertical Balers come in a wide range of configurations, from a small 36” unit, up to a 72”wide vertical baler.

Why Bale Corrugated Cardboard?

Since OCC is bulky and takes up a lot of space in dumpsters – especially if unflattened, your business may find it cost effective to bale or compact the material. Efficient recycling of cardboard can not only free space and create a safer working environment; itcan be a source of revenue when managed as a part of a comprehensive waste management system.

Ely Enterprises has a full selection of vertical balers that can help you maximize your efficiency.
