  • Expanded Polystyrene Compactors and EPS Recycling

    Bergmann Direct supply low, medium and high volume polystyrene compactors which turn loose polystyrene into blocks which sell for up to £600 a tonne. Polystyrene, otherwise known as Expanded Polystyrene (EPS) or Styrofoam, is 98% air. For something that weighs so little, how much are you actually paying to transport it to landfill? - Scroll down to see the machines in our range.

    If you are spending more than £75 a week disposing of EPS polystyrene waste, then it will pay to have a polystyrene compactor, sometimes known as an EPS recycling system. If you are loading up a van on a regular basis to take your polystyrene to landfill, then think about what else you could be doing with your time.

    Compact polystyrene to turn a waste stream into a revenue stream
    Loose polystyrene waste is expensive to dispose of. Compacted polystyrene is a valuable resource which we will buy once it's compacted.

    What Are EPS Polystyrene Compactors?

    Polystyrene quickly fills skips and bins: it takes up large amounts of space due to the air, yet weighs almost nothing. How much are you paying to dispose of air?

    Our EPS compactors will compact your polystyrene by 98%, reducing your disposal costs significantly, but that isn't all.

    Recyclers will often pay a high price for compacted polystyrene: typically between £200 and £400 a tonne. But you will only get these prices if the polystyrene is compacted using an EPS compactor. The amount you can sell it for depends on the quantity you have available, and the weight of each load.


    Why Choose Bergmann Direct For Your EPS Polystyrene Compactor?

    We have been supplying this type of equipment for over 15 years with hundreds of units throughout the UK. It is a specialized piece of equipment to deal with an awkward type of plastic. We understand the machine and the material and we can pass on our knowledge to you. We supply three models of EPS polystyrene compactors for low, medium and high volumes. No matter how much polystyrene you will be recycling, we're confident we'll have the right machine for you.

    We also offer to buy back your compacted polystyrene from you, meaning what once was a waste disposal cost, can now become a viable revenue stream which could pay for the cost of the machine and generate an additional revenue, especially now as rebates are around £600 a tonne.
