When waste materials can't be recycled, they must be placed in a general waste bin. This type of waste is produced by all businesses, and it is important to have a way to make efficient use of the space in the bins and skips you
have. When bin bags are filling up your bins, it can quickly lead to overflowing which is unsanitary, inconvenient and expensive to have collected.
Bin & bag compactors use high pressure to compress waste down to a smaller size in a safe and efficient manner. They are an elegant solution for businesses and organisations aiming to reap the following benefits:
The main problem with your general waste is that there is lots of air trapped in the bags, and they are all irregular shapes. This means the space inside the bins is not used efficiently, with small quantities of bags in each bin trapping large amounts of air. Effectively, you need to use more wheelie bins, resulting in higher costs for waste collection when a large proportion of what's being collected is just air!
We offer the UK's most comprehensive range of compactors to assist with the efficient disposal of general waste. With different load capacities and waste compaction methods, our compactors will crush down your black bin bags, decreasing them to as much as one-tenth of their original size. If you want a standalone compactor that has a minimal footprint and portability features, our bag compactor is a great solution. Simply insert the full bin bag and the compactor will press it down to size so that you can remove it and put it into the bin. This is the perfect solution for cost effective waste management and allows you to enjoy all of the benefits of waste compactors - reducing both the costs and work involved while being better for the environment too.
Our bin compactor is a more static alternative, providing a large bin with a built-in compactor. Simply put your bags into the compactor and activate the crushing plate - your bulky waste will be compressed and there will be no need to remove it and place it in another bin. This is an excellent solution for businesses that create large amounts of food-related waste like hotels or restaurants.
We also offer a glass bottle crusher that can crush up to 680 bottles in just 10 minutes to compress empty bottles for easy disposal. An excellent solution for bars, hotels, restaurants and event venues, the volume of the glass is reduced by a compaction ratio of 5:1, making it easier and more efficient to be made ready for collection.
Portable compactors are also available for companies and premises with limited space and lower volumes of waste. Portable waste compactors typically have a smaller capacity than a static compactor, allowing them to have a minimal footprint and be installed in tight spaces more easily, reducing disposal costs for people who would otherwise have no option. In a world where efficient management of waste streams are becoming an increasingly important issue, businesses must ensure that there waste disposal is as efficient as possible. With one of our bin & bag compactors, you can improve your dry and wet waste disposal processes to reduce costs and minimise the environmental impact of your waste collections. It's a simple and elegant solution that will make day to day operations at your business more streamlined and simple, and compacted waste is easier and cheaper to dispose of than any other kind.
