The automatic CM90 Horizontal Baler has proven reliable, safe & user-friendly and is consistently producing excellent bale densities. Our experience with the team at Waste Initiatives and their product has been completely satisfactory, and we have no hesitation in recommending them – great work guys.
Shoalhaven City Council on the NSW south coast is home to a growing population of over 100,000 residents over a 4,500km2 land mass. The primary recycling facility for the region is located in West Nowra and is a critical asset in Council’s infrastructure network.
With an increasing focus on resource recovery, Council have fast-tracked upgrades of the facility, developing it with the objective of enhancing their recycling capabilities within the region and becoming local government leader in resouce recovery.
A multi-purpose high performance baler was required for processing of cardboard and plastic materials received at the transfer station.
In accordance with Council procurement policy, a public tender was released to market, inviting bids from all reputable baler suppliers.
Superseding all other tenderers across a thorough assessment criteria, Waste Initiatives was awarded the contract for supply & installation of the baler (including infeed conveyor with push ramp).
In spite of site delays with erecting Council’s shed to house the baler, Waste Initiatives were able to arrange a staged delivery and installation which involved preparing and sealing the baler for outdoors storage while it awaited the shed construction.
Installation & commissioning was later completed to Shoalhaven’s full satisfaction.
