Collection Services Equipment

Cardboard and paper baler machines, both horizontal and vertical baler styles, can assist with efficient recycling processes. Depending on the type of material, some businesses are interested in compactor equipment for cardboard, paper, and plastic waste.
Recycling equipment offers a variety of methods for our commercial clients depending on the material, amount of material, space constraints, and frequency of service needed. We offer lease, lease-to-purchase, and purchase options on recycling processing equipment best suited to your business.
Some state or county jurisdictions have mandatory commercial recycling ordinances that impact businesses solid waste management programs. In order to preserve natural resources and reduce environmental impacts, Tri-Power Recycling helps businesses through the lease or purchase of waste collection equipment such as vertical and horizontal balers and compactors.


A terrific addition to any recycling program, balers help businesses package large amounts of recyclable material into compact cubes that are easily stored on-site and transported back to our recycling center. There are two styles of balers – vertical and horizontal – and each one has its own unique uses.

Vertical Baler for Compacting Recyclable MaterialsVertical Balers: These balers compress recyclable materials using the downward force created by a mechanical ram. These crushed cubes are then ejected and ready to be transported. Vertical balers are smaller than horizontal balers, can be stored inside or outside, and are capable of processing most of the same materials—typically corrugated cardboard, plastics, and foam. While vertical balers are the most economical baler models and are the easiest to operate, vertical balers have specific needs and features to consider before buying or renting one:
  • An operator is required to load the recyclables, cycle the hydraulic ram, and tie off compressed bales.
  • Although they are easy to install, most vertical balers require a minimum ceiling height of fourteen (14) feet.
  • Vertical balers have a fixed opening for recyclables. This means cardboard boxes for large items such as refrigerators or other appliances may not easily fit into the baler.
Horizontal Balers: These balers process recyclables through a large opening on top of the machine. When the hopper is full, a hydraulic ram compresses the recyclable material with a strong horizontal force into bales that are ready to be ejected, tied up, and transported. While horizontal balers can process a greater volume of recyclables than vertical balers, there are several features of horizontal balers worth considering before renting or buying one:
  • Horizontal balers are more expensive, costing as much as ten times more than vertical balers.
  • Horizontal balers can process a larger volume of recyclable waste than vertical balers. Horizontal balers can also handle larger singular pieces of material such as boxes used for large appliances, like refrigerators.
  • More floor space is required to accommodate horizontal balers than vertical balers.
When deciding which type of baler best fits your business, it is important to consider three things: cost, how much space is available to accommodate one of these machines, and the volume and size of the material you need to process.


A compactor is a machine that uses a horizontal hydraulic ram to compress recyclable material into a receiving container. Most compactors have a compaction ratio of up to four to one, and cardboard boxes do not need to be broken down before being placed into the compactor.
Stationary Compactor for Compacting Recyclable Materials
These features make compactors a tremendous space and time-saver for businesses that process large amounts of cardboard and plastic film waste. While compactors come in a variety of sizes, the most common dimensions for compactors are two- or four-cubic yard capacity. This dimension reflects the size of the compactor opening.
Compactors provide a safe and secure way for your business to store its recyclables. They also require less labor to operate and maintain than a vertical or horizontal baler. If you are considering buying or renting a compactor, here are some features worth considering:
  • Compactors are normally placed outside and require a large, mountable concrete surface.
  • A haul fee must be paid for the container to be serviced and emptied, but these costs can be potentially offset by rebates for the recycled material.

Trailers/Storage Containers

Tri-Power provides traditional semi-trailers for storage that can be switched out when full or live-loaded at your convenience. In addition, we provide stationary storage containers that we service on an as needed basis.

MESH CUBE SERVICE: Our mesh cubes are ideal for the containment of your recyclables. They have fork pockets on them enabling you to place them strategically in the location that makes the most sense. The mesh cubes work great to minimize contamination since you can easily see the contents of the cube. They have a door for front-loading, or they can be loaded over the top.
BALE PICK-UP:  Depending on your desired frequency, Tri-Power can arrange for pickup of your baled materials.
  • LESS THAN TRUCKLOAD QUANTITIES:  Designed for ground-level or dock-level pickup with a minimum of five bales per pickup.
  • TRUCKLOAD QUANTITIES:  We can provide live-load service into our van or flatbed, or we can arrange to stage a trailer at your facility to load at your convenience.

What Happens to Recycled Paper and Cardboard?

Cardboard recycling items that have been baled are sent to paper mills. These mills use efficient recycling processes for cardboard and paper items to make them into new cardboard boxes. This reduces the amount of material sent to landfills and provides useful new products for individuals and companies across the US.
Cardboard dumpsters, such as our Mesh Cubes, can be added to business locations for carboard recycling pickup service. Baled or loose cardboard may be worth money to your business based on current market values.
Please remember the packaging peanuts that may be inside your cardboard shipping boxes are not recyclable items we accept at our facility.

Commercial Collection Services

Tri-Power Recycling offers customized commercial collection services for recyclable materials. We offer material pickup from your facility, an in-depth recycling audit to determine if you need waste management solutions, drop-off of Mesh Cubes at your location, and rent/purchase options for balers.
If you are a commercial business baling your recyclables onsite, we can pick up your baled materials. We can collect both small quantities up to truckload amounts and we will create a schedule based on how often you need baled recyclables picked up.
Baled paper and cardboard loading options include:
  • Truckload quantities: We provide live-load service in our van or flatbed, or we can place a trailer at your location to load baled materials at your convenience.
  • Smaller quantities: Ideal for smaller businesses with ground-level or dock-level pickup. We require a minimum of five bales per pickup.
