Compactor equipment

Waste compactor equipment save space by making waste smaller and easier to store, turning bulky rubbish or recyclables into smaller sizes. Uncompacted waste is an absolute space-killer, whereas compacted waste takes up a fraction of the space. This means storage or working space can be increased.

Our compactors and balers

A static compactor, loaded by hand or using a wheelie bin, is ideal for compressing a large quantity of general dry waste on-site. The equipment is user-friendly and adaptable to meet your management needs.

Our portable alternative is smaller and can be moved around your site, providing flexibility if you need to use the space for something else or if the compactor is needed elsewhere.

If you dispose of large amounts of paper, cardboard or plastic waste then a baler may be a better choice. We can supply a single chamber unit or a twin, which can bale a range of materials simultaneously.

Both produce solid blocks that can be collected for recycling, guaranteeing a significant reduction in waste.

Balers are used for baling recyclable materials like cardboard, paper, plastic and metal for bulk pickup. These machines compress the recyclables into compact bales, which can be easily stacked and transported for recycling.

Balers can be single or twin chamber, the latter allowing loading of two different waste streams at the same time.

We’ll audit your site and find a solution that works for you.
