About Us

We are the leading supplier of compactors, waste balers and innovative recycling equipment to the public and private sector in the UK.

Bergmann Direct was formed in 1988 and provides a broad range of innovative recycling equipment to UK and some overseas customers.

We specialise in the following areas:

Bergmann Waste Equipment: we are the main dealer of Bergmann waste equipment in the UK.

Bergmann has made its name with 'rotary' waste technology, whether it is rotary bin and bag compactors, roll packers or the unique throw over blade of the portable and mobile compactors. This technology is pioneering and many others have tried to copy it but Bergmann products are the original.

EPS and Polystyrene Compactors: Bergmann Direct has established an enviable reputation as a supplier of hard-working, reliable polystyrene compactors. This awkward waste stream can generate valuable revenue when compacted and we offer a range of excellent value robust equipment.

The Eco-Smart Food Waste Dryer: this revolutionary and highly effective technology is transforming the treatment of food waste at source, eliminating the nightmare of smelly bins and outdated practice of putting food waste into the drain system, a practice already made illegal in Scotland. We are now the leading supplier to the NHS in Scotland.

Static and Traversing Compactors:  unlike our competitors we can make almost any static compactor to the specification you need. Our statics and traversing compactors can be found the length and breath of the UK's household waste recycling centres, at blue chip manufacturers, prestigious hotels and facilities managers.

Waste Balers: whether is is a small twin chamber vertical waste baler or a high throughput fully automatic with bale-wrapper for RDF, we have the solution.

Maintenance: We have a nationwide team of service engineers to install, commission, train, service and maintain equipment across the whole range on a one-off or contract basis.

Finance and Rentals: If you need to finance your equipment over 3, 5 or even 7 years on a fixed term, lease-purchase or operating lease basis we can help you. We have a panel of finance partners with highly competitive rates and can often help even when credit is poor or there is a short trading history.

We hope this website gives you enough information for you to decide which type and model of equipment you need. We can steer you to the most appropriate for your budget, throughput and operational requirements. Never forget that reycling equipment is a means to an end: to save you money, improve your operational efficiency and environmental footprint.
