THE NICEST thing about Gaylord boxes...well, there are many. They cost next to nothing. Relative to the other beasts in your shop, they take up hardly any room. You don’t have to plug them in, so they don’t boost your electric bill. Yes, it’s high time the Gaylord got its due.

Besides, in an economy like the one we’re still experiencing—and considering the George Washington hand-holding that’s naturally taking place among the bean counters—an argument can be made that even a moderately inelegant scrap paper recycling setup is preferred over the investment required to install a properly configured removal and recycling system. But is that actually the case?

There are those who would counter that you won’t get nearly the same return on investment with loose paper as you would with baled. Further, that difference in ROI would virtually pay for the installation of the system in short order. Lastly, avoiding a necessary investment due to state of the economy can be dangerously short-sighted. Gaylords and other home remedy systems represent Band-Aids. When your plant is humming along with work, the last thing you need is a stack of boxes piling up, breaking and requiring attention. You’re better off with an automated system.
