…The baler is going great guns, operators are very pleased with it…

Alan Butler | Manager Water, Wastewater & Waste

Challenge

Walcha Council operate a small recycling facility at their Waste Depot where cardboard and other recyclables are recovered from waste brought to the facility.

Council had an antiquated cardboard baler in place which was constantly deteriorating in both condition and performance.

This had resulted in operational costs disproportionate to the benefit the baler afforded the facility.

Solution

Waste Initiatives were approached for advice on a suitable replacement baler for the facility.

After a brief consultation with Council staff and a site assessment to verify site conditions and placement, a HX400-38T semi-automatic closed-door baler was recommended as the ideal upgrade for the facility.

The high-force HX400 Baler ensures Walcha Council are able to not only process their cardboard volumes, but also a range of other recyclables including shredded paper, cans and bottles.

We at Gunnedah Recyclit would like to thank Waste Initiatives for the honest advice and responsiveness in our engagement leading up to the purchase of the baler. The first thing that impressed me was your willingness to work with us to ensure the delivery and installation was as smooth as it could be. The H400-38T Horizontal Baler has proven reliable, safe & user-friendly and consistently produces excellent bale densities. We have no hesitation in recommending Waste Initiatives to any prospective buyer. We will be engaging Waste Initiatives for our next purchase.

Challenge

Gunnedah Workshop Enterprises “Recyclit” division operate a Commingled Material Recycling Facility (MRF) in the NSW regional town of Gunnedah.

With the long transport distances to ports and metropolitan processors, Recyclit depend heavily on the performance of their container baler to maintain the viability of recycling their PET, HDPE and Aluminium separated in the MRF operation.

In 2020, it was established that the deteriorating baler on site was reaching a point of critical failure and the ongoing cost of maintenance was increasing. It was time for an upgrade.

Solution

When approaching the market for proposals to replace the failing container baler, their site manager received a recommendation to engage Waste Initiatives as the market leader in this field.

After a comprehensive assessment of the site layout, feed method and performance requirements, the WastePac HX400-38T Horizontal Baler was selected as the best suited machine.

Waste Initiatives had to consider the existing triple hopper infeed system – a challenge to fit in with the vertical closed-door mechanism. Our installation technicians safely ensured this was managed without incident, resulting in a successful installation – on time and on budget.

Challenge

Upper Hunter Shire Council is a local government authority and provides an extensive array of services to its local residents.

The Upper Hunter Shire Council were looking to source balers for their recycling department.

The balers needed to be able to handle a range of bulky materials and be tough enough to withstand constant daily use.

Easy operation was key as the staff needed equipment that would require minimal training and be user friendly.

Solution

Waste Initiatives supplied them with a WastePac 60HD baler for the heavy-duty materials and a WastePac 250 baler for the larger materials.

The WastePac 60 Heavy Duty Baler is one of our sturdiest, most versatile balers that can handle a range of difficult to bale materials including plastic bottles, cans, paint tins, plastic and more.

The WastePac 250 baler is ideal for medium to large amounts of material with ease of loading to save time. This baler features dual cylinders for even compaction and the fully automated bale ejector simplifies the removal of the bale.

We purchased a Wastepac Hydraulic Drum Crusher in October 2017. This has proven to be a wonderful piece of machinery. Simple to use, safe and trouble free it has solved our ongoing problem of 210 Litre drum disposal issues. We have engaged Waste Initiatives to service the machine on an annual basis with no inconvenience at all. I highly recommend Waste Initiatives and the Drum Crusher they manufacture as it is now a critical piece of equipment in our daily operations.

Challenge

Over the last 40 years Compass Pools have developed an international reputation for being leaders in the fibreglass in-ground pool market. With a penchant for pushing boundaries, their team has managed to completely redefine the limits of fibreglass pools.

As their business grew, so did the issue of disposing of their 44 gallon drums. The drums were taking up space and the rising amount of waste pickups was causing high disposal costs.

Compass Pools contacted Waste Initiatives for options on waste recycling equipment that would best suit their requirements.

Solution

Waste Initiatives recommended the WastePac Drum Crusher which is a robust built unit with great functionality and high compaction force ratio for easy crushing of steel drums.

With a fully enclosed compaction chamber this machine ensures maximum level of safety for the operator.

The crushed drums saved on space resulting in minimising the amount of pickups required and is a valuable and cost saving asset to the business.
