Portable Compactors

From standard compactors to self-cleaning compactors, these machines offer great cost-effective benefits for businesses. By compacting waste, they lower volume. By lowering waste volume, they ensure few waste collection and disposal trips are needed, meaning you can lower your collection and landfill costs.

Greater hygiene and flexibility with a portable compactor

Portable compactors are manoeuvrable, customisable and offer greater hygiene benefits for working environments - especially if the model has self-cleaning capabilities. In comparison to static compactors, portable compactors are smaller and can also deal with wet waste as they utilise a watertight seal.

These compactors offer:

  • Reduced traffic from less waste collection trips.
  • Environmental benefits, secured by more efficient use of space and less CO2 emissions from fewer disposal trips.
  • A safer working environment as compacted waste is easier stored and less likely to cause trips and falls, unlike loose waste.
  • Reduced costs - Smaller waste volume means less skip hire and waste collection needed, meaning you can save money on your waste management.

Flexible and better for the environment, portable compactors are perfect for reducing waste-associated costs.

Portable waste compactors help businesses to reduce the costs of waste management while simultaneously protecting employees and ensuring better compliance with waste regulations.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • What is a portable compactor?

    A portable compactor is very simply a waste compaction machine that can be transported from one location to another.

    Portable waste compactors work by using a hydraulic ram to compress the waste material into a container at the back of the machine – this container can then be removed and transported to a recycling or disposal facility.

  • What types of waste can be compacted?

    Portable compactors can handle a variety of different waste types including paper, plastic foil and cardboard although they are most often used for general waste without liquid content. If instead, you require a compactor for wet waste (such as food products or any other waste that contains large amounts of liquid), we’d recommend exploring our range of self cleaning compactors.

    Larger models such as our portable screw compactor are even capable of dealing with disposable wooden pallets, wooden packaging and furniture.

  • Which portable compactor is best for my business?

    When considering which compactor would be best suited to your business, you should consider the following: 1) what material do you wish to compact? Will this be a dry or wet material? You will likely require a watertight seal and a self cleaning compactor if you are going to compact wet waste as this will help prevent any unpleasant smells on site, waste pollution and it would save your employees from having to clean the compactors (something that no employee wants to do); 2) the amount of waste that your business produces – quite simply, the more you produce, the larger the compactor you will require, and 3) the amount of available floor space you have.
