There is a real long term cost difference between using a disposable product and a reusable. If you compare the costs of disposable razors, paper towels and plates, cups, plastic knives and forks, Ziploc bags, verses the costs containers, rags, etc. Obviously the upfront costs for almost anything disposal is smaller than a product that is made for continuous use. What about the long term effects of using disposable items? Think of it on a large scale in an industrial manufacturing setting. Disposable items could quickly add up and consume daily activities.
Look at the amount of cardboard boxes and pallets that are used throughout a facility. Those cardboard boxes can quickly become onetime use storage/shipping waste. Cardboard boxes are destroyed with minimal impact. There is a high cost of labor to remove and dispose broken cardboard boxes. Wood pallets are no different. They receive constant abuse from forklifts. There is a high costs to repair, dispose and purchase new pallets. Facility’s can find many cost savings by positioning itself to be leaner through high density bulk storage containers.
