SC1200Small Polystyrene Compactor

The SC1200 is the smallest in Greenbank’s range of EPS Compactors, it has been developed for white goods, retail stores and fish mongers/processors. We recommend the SC1200 for annual volumes of 12 tonnes, depending on waste density, which we will discuss with you.

Dealing with polystyrene can often lead to significant storage and frequent recycling pickups. The SC1200 small polystyrene compactor effectively mitigates these issues by compressing polystyrene at an impressive ratio of up to 50:1. The compacted briquettes are easily organised on a pallet, ready to be collected from a waste recycler in exchange for a rebate.

Clients utilising the SC1200 may see rebates of up to £1,000 per tonne, depending on their capacity for on-site storage. 

If your requirements exceed what our small polystyrene compactor can handle, consider exploring the higher capacity models such as the SC2200 or SC3100 for more demanding polystyrene compaction needs.
