Polystyrene waste is a by-product of many business processes and it has a value. Typically, polystyrene takes up large amounts of space, presents a fire risk & inflates the costs of waste management & landfill by adding volume but not weight to any waste loads that are taken away.
Money – polystyrene is normally a massive cost to businesses but it can be a saleable commodity. Screw compactors can reduce landfill costs by 60%, preventing businesses from sending skips full of ‘fresh air’ to the tip & they can enable businesses to sell on their polystyrene in a way that is easily transported and that can earn significant rebates
Safety – polystyrene is a highly flammable material & can cause problems for businesses including an insurance risk. Compacting it enables it to be stored more effectively & to pose less of a fire risk
Space – polystyrene is built to protect materials and, because of this, does not have a great deal of density. Polystyrene can take up huge amounts of space both in the yards of businesses & in skips. Screw compactors can reduce polystyrene by a ratio of 50:1
Screw compactors can increase landfill costs by over 60%, generate revenue for customers with large volumes of polystyrene. Polystyrene requires less space, becomes less of a fire hazard & is more profitable to businesses who want to sell it on for recycling.
