Maximizing Efficiency: Nanoia’s Baler Upgrade for a Large NYC Grocery Store

In the bustling streets of New York City, a large grocery store faced a common challenge in waste management: the need for an upgraded baler to handle their increasing volumes of cardboard waste. The store’s existing 42” baler was no longer sufficient, producing bales of only 300 lbs. Recognizing the need for a more robust solution, they turned to Nanoia Recycling Equipment for assistance.

The Challenge

The grocery store’s location and layout presented unique challenges for the installation of a new baler. The chosen machine, the PTR 1800HD, known for its durability and high-capacity performance, had to be brought in completely disassembled. The installation required precision and expertise, as the baler had to be transported up a ramp and maneuvered through a 90-degree turn to reach its designated spot.

Nanoia’s Solution

Nanoia’s team, with their extensive experience in handling complex installations, rose to the challenge. The disassembled PTR 1800HD was carefully transported to the store, ensuring that each component remained intact and ready for reassembly. The installation process was meticulously planned and executed, with the team successfully navigating the tight turn and ramp to install the baler in its new home.

The Results

The upgrade to the PTR 1800HD baler has brought significant benefits to the grocery store. The new machine produces bales of 600 lbs, doubling the weight of the previous bales. This increase in bale size has led to several key advantages:

  • Labor Savings: With larger bales, the store has reduced the frequency of baling operations, saving valuable labor time.
  • Baling Wire Savings: The larger bales require less baling wire per pound of material, resulting in cost savings.
  • Space Efficiency: The compacted bales take up less space in the store’s waste management area, freeing up room for other operational needs.


Nanoia Recycling Equipment’s successful installation of the PTR 1800HD baler at a large NYC grocery store showcases our commitment to providing tailored solutions that meet our clients’ specific needs. The store’s increased bale size has led to significant savings in labor, baling wire, and space, demonstrating the importance of choosing the right equipment for efficient waste management.
