What is compaction?

Compacting reduces the volume of dry and wet waste through, quite literally, compacting it. Compactors are used in a wide variety of industries for compacting waste – from food waste to general waste.

Why compact?

Like baling, compacting reduces the volume of waste materials.

Benefits of compacting


  • Reduces space taken up by waste on site
  • Easier to store due to regular shape
  • Increases ease of transportation


  • Reduced storage costs
  • Lower transportation costs
  • Reduced waste disposal costs


  • Compacted waste requires fewer vehicles for transportation.

Examples of materials that can be compacted:

  • Blister packs
  • Cardboard
  • Cosmetics and pharmaceuticals
  • General waste
  • Wood pallets
  • Textiles
  • Tyres/Rubber
  • Food waste
  • EPS (expanded polystyrene)
