Portable Compactors

About Portable Compactors

A waste compactor is designed to compress and minimise the volume of waste material. Used commercially for non-recyclable waste with hydraulic pressure. A compactor can manage cardboard, paper, plastic, aluminium, food waste among other general waste.

Compacted waste reduces the number of collections required from waste collection services and increases the volume that can be collected on each occasion.

Portable Compactors Uses

Portable compactors are optimal for those dealing with wet or contaminated waste which can be used in-conjunction with a drainage system. The smaller portable compactors are usually handled with a skip truck and the larger machines with a Ro-Ro hook-lift vehicle.

Designed to fit ether on the rear of a skip lorry (called Skip Portable) for up to 10cu metre or are the larger type up to 24cu metre to be uplifted / emptied using a roll on / off type vehicle.

Being enclosed, there are additional benefits:-

  • Reduction food waste odour, especially in hotter months
  • Reduction in vermin
  • Improved housekeeping due to design.
