How do you use a twin+ chamber baler?

To compact recyclables the moveable press plate is safely moved by two-hand control from one chamber to the other. For the compaction of more recyclable streams the number of press chambers can be increased. Therefore with various types of recyclables such as cardboard packaging and film, a bale is produced without temporary storage being required for the materials.
