What are waste balers and compactors?

Waste balers and compactors are machines that are used to compress and consolidate different types of waste materials into more manageable and dense packages. These machines are often used in commercial and industrial settings to reduce the volume of waste produced, making it easier and more cost-effective to dispose of.

Waste balers and compactors are vital tools in waste management, allowing for more efficient and cost-effective disposal of waste materials.

Why we recommend the use of waste balers and waste compactors

These machines are highly effective at reducing the volume of waste on site and optimising the use of available space. Additionally, they can lead to significant cost savings through the reduction of transportation requirements.

The overarching advantage of these machines then, is two-fold: They’re financially beneficial, with a positive environmental impact.

Why is a baler the right solution for you?

If your organisation generates large amounts of cardboard, paper, plastic packaging or aluminium cans, a baler can be an effective tool to aid in recycling these materials. Retailers, distribution centres, catering facilities, and leisure complexes are just a few examples of entities that would benefit from having this waste solution in place.

Implementing a baler can save your organisation valuable storage space, as every square foot is important when it comes to productivity and profitability. Reducing waste volume can result in cost savings of up to 80%. In fact, a waste reduction ratio of up to 10:1 can be achieved, ultimately increasing business productivity.

How to choose a baler

It’s important to select the right type of baler for your needs. Here’s what to look out for.

And as always, our team is here to assist you! Contact us today and we’ll help you make the right choice.

The compact option

If you’re looking for a compact option, the mini baler is about the size of a filing cabinet.

Waste up to 250kg

For cardboard or plastics up to 250 kg, consider a medium to large baler.

The heavy-duty option

The heavy-duty baler can produce bales up to 400kg.

The really big  jobs

And for the really large jobs, mill-sized balers can handle up to 500kg and the baled material can be shipped directly for recycling.

The multi-purpose option

If you’re a small to medium producer of cardboard and plastics, the multi-baler, which is about the size of two filing cabinets, would be an ideal option for you.

Why is a compactor the right solution for you?

We recommend using our waste compactor service to customers who generate large amounts of low-density dry waste. This service helps to significantly reduce the final volume of waste, which saves you money and makes your site odour-free.

A clean site also reduces untidy waste on display, improves security, and reduces the need for transport movements, thereby reducing carbon emissions and on-site disruption. Additionally, you may want branded machines to demonstrate your commitment to the environment.

How to choose a compactor

To determine which type of compactor is most suitable for your needs, our team can visit your site and perform a waste audit. We offer both static compactors, which come in different sizes, and portable compactors, which range from 2 to 12 cubic yards.

Static compactors

With static compactors, you feed material into the hopper and the machine compresses the material into the RORO, which is then exchanged and taken back to one of our waste transfer stations for treatment once full.

Portable compactors

Portable compactors are leak-proof and ideal for wet general waste production, with our service taking away the entire container each time and replacing it with an empty one.

  • Recyclables
  • Paper
  • Cardboard
