The vertical balers are very useful and popular in shopping centers, department stores, office buildings, warehouses, manufacturing plants, hospitals, neighborhood recycling centers, or anywhere there is need to handle light to moderate amounts of recyclable materials. These balers are commonly used to bale corrugated (cardboard) boxes, but can also do many other materials as well. These balers can pay for themselves just by baling corrugated boxes, instead of paying for them to be disposed of in the regular waste pick-up.
