General Waste Recycling

Even if a comprehensive waste minimisation, material recovery and recycling policy is applied, it is often inevitable that a residual amount of general waste is produced at most sites.

Dependent on the volume of waste produced the on-site compaction of waste prior to collection and disposal can in most cases provide a sizeable reduction in waste collections required, with a resultant reduction in waste transportation costs.


Waste compactors are supplied in two principal types:-

  • Static waste compactors - Usually bolted down onto a suitable slab base, the static waste compactor will then be attached to a demountable container, provided by the waste contractor. Having loaded waste into the compactor, it is then compressed into the container, with a warning light pre-set to advise the operator when the container is nearly full, ready for collection. Whilst no two waste types compact at the same rate, typical compaction rates are expected at around four to one. Enviroquip supply a range of static compactor models to suit each application, including automatic loading options to reduce labour demand and improve site safety.

  • Portable waste compactors - Often employed for applications where food waste residues are produced, the benefit of a portable waste compactor is that all materials placed within it are contained, including any liquids. When full, the entire unit is lifted from site for emptying and return. Again, a wide range of loading options are available.

With a full spectrum of both new and refurbished waste compactors available from for purchase and rental, Enviroquip have a suitable waste compaction system for almost any application.
