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technology is transforming the treatment of food waste at source, eliminating the nightmare of smelly bins and outdated practice of putting food waste into the drain system, a practice already made illegal in Scotland.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.

Our friendly staff are on hand to help you. Call us on 0845 226 5803 or get in touch using our short contact form. We look forward to helping you.

    Bergmann Direct supply a full range of vertical, semi-automatic horizontal waste balers and fully automatic horizontal balers.

    Our waste balers can handle all the standard materials such as cardboard, soft plastics (shrink-wrap, plastic sheeting), PET bottles, hard plastics, aluminium and steel cans even difficult materials such as RDF which require plastic strapping and wrapping to be compliant.

    Bergmann Direct supply a range of vertical balers. for cardboard, plastic and metal cans. Mill-size balers are ideal for low to medium volumes (0.3 – 1 tonne per hour) of cardboard, soft plastics, PET bottles*, aluminium and steel cans. UK paper mills require ‘mill-size’ bales in order to attract rebates on cardboard. Manually loaded and tied off. Bale pressure up to 50 tonnes. View the Vertical Baler range here.

    Semi - Automatic (Manual Tie) horizontal waste balers.are ideal for larger volumes (1 to 3 tonnes per hour) of cardboard, plastics, PET bottles*, aluminium and steel cans,  where volume loading is required from a bin lifter, bucket, forklift truck or a conveyor. All bales are ‘mill-sized’. The bales are tied off by hand and the bale is fully-ejected before another bale or another material is started. Bale pressure from 80 to 120 tonnes.

    The fully - automatic (auto-tie) horizontal waste balers.is required when volume processing 3 to 16 tonnes per hour. Bales are automatically tied off and pushed out (the bale behind pushes out the bale in front). Feeding is typically by bucket, forklift truck, conveyor or chute. All bales are ‘mill-sized’. Bale pressure from 40 to 120 tonnes.

    RDF is a difficult material which is often made up of small particles of residual waste after the main items have been outsorted. It requires a) high pressure; b) plastic ties and c) bale wrapping. You need a plastic tie facility on your baler which RDF balers.use and you will need a bale wrapper aswell. Feeding is typically by conveyor.
