Butcher shop compacts cardboard waste in small B5 Wide baler

10 November 2021

The owner of a small butcher shop in Toronto wanted to deal with never-ending supplies of cardboard boxes and their disposal. The solution was a small baler model B5 Wide.

How many cardboard boxes do you recycle on a regular basis?

If you are a owner of a grocery store you know that the cardboard boxes with supplies keep coming on a regular basis, and you need to deal with this waste that quickly takes up too much space. You also know how many times a week or a month that your cardboard bin is emptied, and how much time it takes for your employees to break down boxes for recycling.

This was the challenge that a second-generation Italian butcher shop in Toronto faced. Globe Meats Fresh Market & Grill needed a solution to their never-ending supply of cardboard boxes.

A wide chamber baler for easy filling of heavy duty meat boxes

The butcher shop owner contacted Kernic Systems, a Bramidan distributor, for help dealing with their high volume of thick cardboard boxes that came from daily operations. The sales consultant from Kernic suggested the vertical baler B5 Wide with a wide filling opening for handling not only the widest of boxes, but also heavy duty meat boxes used to transport thick cuts of beef, pork, and other meats.

The customers at the grill are not disturbed - the baler works with a very low noise level

The B5 Wide baler was the perfect solution for their daily cardboard needs. With a high press-force, this small vertical baler handles their current cardboard volumes with ease. Furthermore, Bramidan balers also are produced with the lowest noise levels for vertical balers on the market, coming in between 65-68 dB. This was an important issue for the shop owner, with a seating section to service their grill customers, and possible noise coming from compaction. The low decibel levels were a crucial consideration for Globe Meats, it must not disturb the relaxing and delicious dining experience.

Features of the B5 Wide baler

Capable of producing cardboard bales up to 110 kgs, the B5 Wide is an excellent option for a facility that needs to recycle wide boxes, keeping their noise levels low, and where space is limited. Bramidan Vertical Balers all tie off bales from the front, which allows the machines to be placed right up against a wall, saving space. With an auto eject function and safe, two-handed operation, these balers are the perfect solution to handle recyclable waste materials such as: cardboard, plastic wrap, aluminum cans, plastic bottles, and more!
