Hepworth is the Middle East’s premier manufacturer and supplier of high quality plastic piping systems for the distribution and transmission of water and waste water. Hepworth products cover soil, waste and drainage pipe systems as well as Hep2O flexible hot & cold plumbing systems. A large amount of packaging waste is generated everyday from the input of raw materials and in day-to-day operations.
In addition, further waste is generated in the manufacturing process relating to Polypropylene and Polybutylene materials. Handling and disposing of this waste was using a lot of time, manpower, factory space and cost. Furthermore, the operational and loading/unloading area was becoming quite messy.
Mil-tek installed a Model 305 baler press for the plastic and cardboard waste. Now, the cardboard and plastic packaging waste is baled in the Mil-tek baler and stacked onto pallets in a more orderly fashion.
With the Mil-tek waste baler, the space occupied storing waste is reduced by 40%. There is also a large reduction in amount of manpower, time and cost used handling waste. It is easier to keep yard clean and make the working area safe and environmentally friendly.
