A Success Story – Mouang Khong Environmental Group
This past year, the Mouang Khong Environmental Group from Ban Khinak, in the Champasak Province of Laos, identified a need to reduce waste hauling fees related to their recycling efforts. Mouang Khong Environmental recycles large quantities of cardboard, PET bottles, mixed plastics, aluminum cans, and various metals. Harmony Enterprises worked with the company to find a Vertical Baler that has exceeded their expectations.
Finding a Vertical Baler to Fit their Needs
In order to save space in each truckload and reduce the total amount of monthly waste hauling trips, they contacted Harmony Enterprises for help finding a solution. They needed a vertical baler that was powerful enough to create uniform bales of various materials (cardboard, PET bottles, mixed plastics, aluminum cans, and various metals), while using a relatively small operational footprint. A vertical baler with these parameters would not only help them save money, it would ensure that their recycling work area remained clean, sanitary, and safe for the workers.
The Harmony M30HD Vertical Baler was the perfect solution to this growing company’s needs. With a ram force of over 41,000 lbs., this gem of a baler is easy and safe to operate. It’s fast cycle time, high capacity loading, and energy efficient motor allow it to run at low operating costs for longer periods of time.
The Baler Increased their Efficiencies Times Ten!
Craig Hoffman, owner of Mouang Khong Environmental states, “Yesterday was the first day I operated it (the M30HD) and it works great! We did a thick walled PET water bottle yesterday. I could not believe how many bags got compressed into one bundle. We then did two loads of cardboard with good results. Today we are doing mixed plastic and then clear plastic PET bottles.”
Not only does this owner recognize the efficiency of the M30HD Vertical Baler and its ease of operation, but also the impact it has had on the company’s bottom line.
“We are able to transport about 10 times the amount of product in each truck! We obviously were shipping a lot of air before we started to compact. This saves us a lot of money,” Hoffman said.
