Create Export-Grade Recycling Bales in Your Facility

Sonoco's low-profile rebaler machine empowers customers to create high-quality recycling bales themselves, taking advantage of a strong export market and cutting costs associated with third-party rebalers.

The rebaler is installed in customers' distribution centers, and requires no added personnel to operate.
