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?
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.
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.
At Bergmann Direct, 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. You can, of course, continue to use your existing waste contractor or recycler.
Browse our three types of compactors below, and see which is the ideal option for you:
SP200: Small EPS Polystyrene Compactor: Capacity: 2.5 to 4.5 cubic metres of loose EPS per hour
CP250: Medium EPS Polystyrene Compactor: Capacity 6.5 to 10 cubic metres of loose EPS per hour
CP370: Large EPS Polystyrene Compactor: Capacity 10 to 25 cubic metres of loose EPS per hour
