Innnovative Recycling Technology

Bergmann Direct supply low, medium and high volume polystyrene compactors which turn loose polystyrene into blocks which sell for up to £750 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 in skips or wheelie bins, it will pay to have a polystyrene compactor, sometimes known as an EPS recycling system. The value of the compacted EPS or the reduction in disposal costs could pay for the machine alone or even generate revenue for you.

What Are
EPS Polystyrene Compactors?


Loose polystyrene waste is costly to dispose of. But compacted polystyrene has a high value, up to £700 a tonne (at 2022 prices).

To get that resale value, you need a polystyrene (or EPS) compactor to form it into tight blocks that can be picked up by the recycler. The actual value of any compacted polystyrene you have will depend on the volume you have and the amount the recycler can collect on one trip. Tell us about your polystyrene waste problem and we can work out if you can save, or even earn money from your waste.
