Baling textiles or food containers is a breeze with this Food Can & Textile baler.  Many textiles are recyclable including bed linens, towels, and clothes.  In order to transport large quantities of textiles, baling has become a necessity.  This baler will compact your textiles into an extremely compact and easy-to-transport baled cube. 

Containers and cans that food has been stored in usually must be compacted and baled in order to save space in back rooms of kitchens, cafeterias, schools and other facilities, saving space, money and in many cases making income from recycling the cans and containers.
