Eximious Furniture Limited has invested in a new RWM75 waste baler to tackle the amount of waste it produces daily.
Handling three different material streams – cardboard, plastic and metal paint tins – this vertical compact baling press from Riverside Waste Machinery is significantly reducing the volume of unwanted packaging held in the company’s 1700 sq m factory.
Leicestershire-based Eximious is passionate about improving the health and safety of its premises, in addition to contributing to the UK’s recycling targets. Founded in 2002, the designer and manufacturer of bespoke hand-made corporate furniture solutions has turned to baling technology for the first time since its inception.
With the new technology in place, the machine has enabled the baling of approximately 200kg per month of materials to be quickly and efficiently size-reduced. In addition, any health and safety risk surrounding the storage of bulky waste has been minimised, and the company’s recycling processes are better supported.
Eximious’ commercial director Claire Geary said: “The whole of the UK has a part to play in the reduction of waste at source, in particular plastic. When ‘waste’ is produced, it’s then crucial to ensure that it is handled in the most environmentally robust way possible.
“Initially, we looked into machinery that would assist us in crushing paint tins, but we quickly realised that we could minimise all waste materials we produce during our manufacturing activity – and our research brought us to Riverside.
“We’ve been overwhelmed with the support received from the team and couldn’t imagine working alongside a better waste machinery provider. As 2018 has unfolded, we have witnessed the numerous improvements made by the machine, and would recommend a baler to any company that is looking to boost its recycling agenda.”
Riverside is renowned for supplying a wide range of cardboard and plastic balers, and has this year celebrated its 21st anniversary in business. The company has recently launched a secure online shop, enabling visitors to buy their baling consumables and accessories in only a few clicks.
