Bail out the Baler!

The large baler is a key component of non-profit PRo Kansas Recycling – compacting recyclables and saving us some $300,000 in baling costs, so far.

After 12 years of use here (we bought it used), this baler needs significant repairs. The cost is estimated at $10,000 for mechanical repairs and conveyor belt replacement.

This should put another 12 years of life on this baler.  It is a lot of money, but a REPLACEMENT BALER would cost $50,000 to $60,000!!

Help us Bail Out Our Baler and keep recycling strong in Wichita!
