In an effort to mitigate the problem of increasing amount of generated waste papers going to dumpsites for burning directly causing global warning. Horizontal waste paper baling machine was designed, Manufactured and tested using high local content and readily available materials in such a way that, maintenance will not be expensive to ensure sustainability and reliability. The principal parameters of the design included the maximum force (10 KN) of the compression, the distance the piston rod has to move before compressing the waste paper (piston stroke, 609mm), cycled time of 9 minutes and the system pressure. The major components of the waste paper baling machine designed includes the frame, electric motor, coupling, hydraulic pump, pressure hose, directional control valve, filter, pressure gauge, thermometer, tank, and hydraulic cylinder. The machine was tested for performance with a waste paper such as white papers of A4 size used for Photostat and printing upon and found to be able to bale the waste paper into a bale size of 400mm × 400mm × 700mm in 6 seconds and weight of 15kg, the efficiency of the machine was 80%, using the hydraulic power system. The bales produced by this device will aids in simple management, storage and transportation and will enhance the recycle industry.
