Some people who are new to the recycling and waste management industry may not fully understand the difference between a compactor and a baler. If you have a business that involves handling waste or recyclable material, both a baler and a compactor can help make managing the waste easier and more cost effective. But you do need to know the difference!


A baler is used to compress and bundle (or bale) recyclable materials such as cardboard, paper, plastics, metal, etc. The materials are made into dense and consistently shaped bales for easy storage and transport. Eventually the bales of recyclable materials are brought to a recycling company for resale and reuse.


In contrast, a compactor is used to reduce and compress large volumes of trash into a contained area before the waste hauling company picks it up and delivers it to the landfill. Compactors can reduce the overall number of trash pickups because compacted trash takes up less space!
