The Bergmann PS8100 is the original bag compactor. It has a small 1.6m by 1.2m footprint and will give a 10:1 compaction rate, achieving an 80% plus reduction in collections. 

Ideal for locations with no room for multiple wheelie bins. Will compact cardboard, plastics and general waste into a 1000L bag. Unlike a baler, you don't need to stand and wait for the press head to finish compacting one load before loading another: the PS8100 will compact as you load, using the rotating compaction drum.

The bag is protected by a bag shield so won't break or tear. Popular in cities where waste areas are restricted.


Accessories and features

  • Small area for waste management (for example city centre hotels and shops)No room for multiple bins
  • General waste or dry recyclables with some contamination from food waste: the bag contains all the liquid
  • Production lines and factories where waste needs to be compacted at the point it is generated: loading by hand, conveyor or chute is typical
  • Apartment blocks where waste is disposed via chutes: the PS8100 can be loaded from a vertical chute
  • As an alternative to a baler, particularly for plastics and shrinkwrap

How The Bergmann
PS8100 Works

A new bag is placed in the machine with a pallet on the floor and the doors closed; waste is loaded through the chute door; the rotary drum breaks up and compacts the waste into the bag; the bag is protected by a metal bag shield.

The full bag, typically between 350kg and 500kg in weight; is pulled out with a pallet truck and the bag sealed. The bag can be fork-lifted into a 35 yard container (typical in factories) or collected where waste vehicles have bag and forklift attachments (commonly available in London for example).
