Polystyrene Screw Compactors

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.

Screw Compactors have the following advantages:

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

Frequently Asked Questions

In order to maximise returns, I need a baler. Can you help?

Yes. We offer a range of balers to suit all budgets and can supply, sell or rent them to you. Please see our machinery section for more details

Our space on-site is limited. What can you do?

There are a number of ways that we can help but these will be determined by your needs. On the one hand, we can install balers & compacting skips &, on the other hand, we can arrange for regular collections. There are a range of options but all of these will depend on your situation & what you want to achieve.

What To Do Next

We are most helpful to clients when we can arrange to come and undertake a waste assessment. As a first step, however, you may prefer to call us to discuss your options and to get an idea of whether we will be a good fit for you.
