The successful discount retailer, now the 7th largest after overtaking Waitrose in August 2017 with 5.2% of the sector, has opted for the Bergmann Static Roll Packer to crush pallet waste in open containers at a selection of regional distribution centres.
Lidl is the latest in a series of retailers to take advantage of the market-leading technology. IKEA, John Lewis and M&S are among other famous retail names who use the Bergmann Roll Packer to increase tonnages in open containers.
The roll packer has long been popular with companies which generate volumes of wood waste, such as pallets and packing cases. The 1.5 tonne geared drum crushes waste in layers and increases tonnages in a 35-yard container from around 2 tonnes to typically around 8 tonnes, cutting the transport portion of the disposal by 75-80%.
Organisations with more than one 35-yard collection of wood waste a week will benefit immediately from the use of a Bergmann Roll Packer, which can be used on any general, plastic or light metal waste.
Bergmann Direct first began working with Lidl UK in 2004, installing and maintaining their range of screw compactors for their cardboard waste.
