Recycling & compacting bulk bags
Bulk bags are entirely recyclable but because of their size, compaction is almost always necessary. In addition, because bulk bags are typically used to transport loose material such as sand or grain, they would need extensive and complex cleaning before reuse.
Often, bulk bags are compacted and transported en masse to a recycler who can arrange to shred the material and recycle it into new bags. Mil-tek balers can be adjusted to specifically handle big bags, with special extraction equipment to handle the dust that is expelled when compacting bulk bags.
