“If the numbers turn out favorable, which is the likely outcome, it can be a true “win-win” outcome – for the companies as well as for the environment” says Paul Juhnke, President of Waste Disposal Equipment Co.

Q: At a time when companies are desperately looking for ways to reduce costs and increase revenues, what sense does it make to consider spending money on waste disposal and recycling equipment?
A: It could mean reduced costs and additional revenues. All they need to do is look at the facts.

With this in mind, a new free “Guide to Calculate Savings from Waste Disposal & Recycling Equipment” is now available for companies & organizations to determine the specific dollar impact on their operations. Unlike anything else available, it provides a practical tool for companies to determine for themselves whether it would be an economically wise decision – based on facts, rather than on opinions or prejudgments.

Currently there is considerable debate within the business community on whether it is worthwhile to invest in such equipment (e,g. balers, compactors & crushers). Many feel that compacting wastes & recycling is just an additional cost burden and therefore is not worth the time or expense to pursue.

This Guide provides helpful information, including tables showing overall savings in relation to the cost of equipment. It also includes formulas they can use to calculate their likely “Break-Even” level (where the savings offset the cost of the equipment); “Payback” (how long it will take for savings to equal the cost of equipment); and” Return on Investment” (ROI-the percentage return they get on their cost of equipment). This Guide, developed by Waste Disposal Equipment Co., is in a “workbook” format so companies can just plug in their own figures to make the calculations for their particular situation.

Many companies are surprised to find that they can actually come out ahead money-wise, frequently with full payback from their equipment investment within 2 years or less. On the other hand, some companies’ calculations may show that the equipment would cost more than what they would save. Today’s equipment is very efficient and can reduce the volume of wastes by up to 90% by compacting and can convert wastes into recyclable form. Savings on disposal costs by 50% or more is typical. And companies can get additional revenues by recycling. So the only way for a company to know their likely result is to do their own calculation.

This 11 page Guide can be useful for all types of companies and organizations -regardless of industry categories or size of operations - since they all have to deal with disposing of their wastes. It can be especially useful for those involved in waste management.

In addition, the Guide covers other less-quantifiable benefits of waste reduction & recycling, including such factors as: saving space, saving time, improving operational efficiencies, improved safety, strengthening the organization’s image – while also benefitting the environment. Even though these benefits are difficult to measure in dollar terms, they further add to the value of investing in such equipment. “If the numbers turn out favorable, which is the likely outcome, it can be a true “win-win” outcome – for the companies as well as for the environment” says Paul Juhnke, President of Waste Disposal Equipment Co. Furthermore when companies save money and increase revenues, they are in a position to create more jobs and help stimulate the economy.
