Wheelie Bin Compactor

The Bergmann 1100E compacts waste by a ratio of 6:1 in a standard 1100 litre wheelie bin. The 1100E can also compact in standard 660 and 770 litre bins. That's six wheelie bins compacted into just one, saving you a fortune in collection costs.

Bergmann 1100-E Rotary 1100L bin compactor
Bergmann 1100-E Rotary Bin Compactor accepts standard 1100, 770 and 660 litre bins. Compaction ratio of 6:1.

It is the ideal solution for sites with:

  • Small area for waste management (like hotels and shops)
  • No room for multiple bins (city centre areas for example)
  • Apartment blocks where waste is disposed via chutes: the 1100E can be loaded from a vertical chute

How The Bergmann 1100E Works

A new bin is placed in the machine the locking flap closed; waste is loaded through the chute door (or via a chute from above for example); the rotary drum breaks up and compacts the waste into the bin. When the bin is full the full light or alarm sounds. A new bin can then be placed in the machine.

Bergmann 1100-E: Left: rotary drum breaks up and compacts the waste into the drum; Middle: easy-to-use controls; Right: bin-locking mechanism which secures the bin in place on the DIN pin (trunion) for compacting.

The Bergmann 1100E is much safer than the standard Bin Press. Bin Presses (a flat plate pushes down into the bin), even on a two-handed operation have potentially dangerous trap zones and will only produce a 2:1 compaction ratio.

  • Supplying waste handling equipment & services
    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.
