Static waste compactors are used to compact waste on sites with large volumes of general or dry waste. They reduce wheelie bin collections substantially. Waste or recyclables are compacted into a container which is exchanged for a new empty one when full.

A static waste compactor is bolted to the ground and remains on site, unlike a portable compactor, where the whole unit is removed for emptying and then returned later in the day.

Static compactors save large waste producers thousands of pounds in disposal costs by reducing the transport element.

Bergmann Direct make a full range of short cylinder, long cylinder and traversing compactors in different configurations so the unit is perfect for your site, volume of waste and your preferred method of filling it, whether it is loaded by hand, with a wheelie bin lifter (240L up to 1100L), chute fed or from a dock or platform.

Three Static Compactor
Options

Bergmann Direct supply three main types of Static Waste Compactor. You can find more information on these by clicking on the links below.

Short Cylinder Static Compactors

This is the standard static compactor for general waste and dry recyclables. The cylinder configuration allows a smaller footprint.

  • Hopper type (open, covered, enclosed, chute, through-the-wall)
  • Loading: left, right, rear or dock-loaded, manual or bin-lifter
  • Bin lifter: pinion (1100 litre Euro bin, 240L, 360L, 660L, 770L)
  • Safety cage with the bin lifter

Long Cylinder Static Compactors

The long cylinder ram is for bulkier materials that require higher compaction, but is also used for cardboard and other recyclables. Typically used by local authorities.

  • Hopper type (open, covered, enclosed, chute, through-the-wall)
  • Loading: left, right, rear or dock-loaded, manual or bin-lifter
  • Bin lifter: pinion (1100 litre Euro bin, 240L, 360L, 660L, 770L)
  • Charge box up to 3 cubic metres

Traversing Compactors

Generally used only on local authority, household waste sites (HWRCs), these are long cylinder compactors designed to deal with large volumes of general waste and waste requiring higher compaction levels.

They are mounted on a rail system set in the concrete. The compactors move from one container to another on the rails as each container fills up.

They can be filled from a loading dock or from the ground.
