Bergmann Direct Ltd are leading providers of heavy duty traversing static compactors for use on local authority Household Waste Recycling Centres.

These traversing compactors are bespoke for each site but are based around standard models depending on the site operational requirements, how the public need to load them, say from a dock or from the ground and the types of waste which will be fed into them, typically cardboard and general waste.

These compactors are usually purchased via a tender. If you would like us to participate, please contact us below with your specification.
