Polystyrene Compactors

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. 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.

Loose polystyrene waste is expensive to dispose of. Compacted polystyrene is a valuable resource which can be sold to recyclers

What Are EPS Polystyrene Compactors?

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.

Why Choose Bergmann Direct For Your EPS Polystyrene Compactor?

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

    to private companies & public sector organisations

    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 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.
