Recycling of Shredded Paper
Shredded waste office paper is a recyclable commodity that is ultimately sold on for profit. Most smaller and even some large mobile shredding firms deliver their shredded paper to waste paper merchants, who then bale the paper and ship it to a paper mill.
The waste paper merchant pays for the paper on a per ton rate, creating another income stream for the shredding firm. When the shredding firm has a considerable volume of paper being processed it can become economically sound to purchase a baler and deal direct with the paper mill.
A shredding firm may need to have 3 or 4 trucks in operation before it becomes viable to Bale their own paper, so in the early stages of the companies' life the best strategy is to focus on sales to win more customers, rather than diverting time and money to set up and operate a baling operation. With an efficient and automated unloading system such as the AXO Rollout Discharge Conveyor unloading is easy and quick, allowing the tructo soon be back in the field and earning revenue.
