The Top 6 Reasons Why Retailers Choose Orwak

Orwak compactors and balers…

  1. Decrease the amount of time staff needs to spend on managing trash
  2. Create more space in storage areas and small back rooms
  3. Decrease waste volume and produce small, manageable bales of recycled material
  4. Maintain a clean and inviting environment for customers and staff members
  5. Increase night staff safety by keeping waste indoors 
  6. Turn recycled material from a cost to a source of income


“Having a baler means it never reaches a stage where we are struggling.”

“Instead of hemorrhaging money to have cardboard taken away, we wanted to bale the cardboard ourselves, make money doing it and feel good that we were greening our operations. “The Orwak 3110 Compact caught our eye because of its compact size. It could fit in a little nook. It also uses 110-volt current and produces bales of 80 to 100 pounds, which are easier to maneuver.”

Jack Moore, Facilities Director, Roots Market

“Once these additional savings were calculated in, the clear winner was the Orwak 3115 at Concord Mills Mall with a net annual profit of $3,790. SouthPark Mall’s annual net profit was $380, thus the savings generated from the “mini” Orwak 3115 baler was approximately 10 times that of the larger Mil-tek 509HD baler. When you consider that there are approximately 47,000 shopping centers in the United States (1,100 classified as enclosed malls), the Orwak “mini” Compact baler can have a pretty BIG impact despite its small footprint.
