All businesses in the UK are required by law to look after their own waste streams. This means that you have to organise collections of your waste from reputable providers that have the correct licenses for the waste streams you produce.
Two pieces of equipment that are regularly used within the waste management industry are compactors and balers, which as the names might suggest package your waste up securely, tightly, and in order to follow strict regulations.
Balers and compactors all come in different shapes and sizes, which of course will attract various cost points depending on what you go for. Another factor is the type of waste that you will be putting through them. Typically the materials that can be put through a compactor and / or baler are:
- General Waste
- Polystyrene (EPS6)
- Cans, Tins & Drums
The machines can produce bales or compact waste bundles weighing up to 500kg depending on the size of the machine used, and the amount of waste, but they are beneficial because can you imagine that amount of waste just laying around? It would be a health hazard at the very least. Baling and compacting means it will take up minimal space to allow you to produce many more before having them removed. This will not only make your site clearer, but it will also reduce spending as you will be able to have more collected at any one time.
There are a range of industries that benefit from the use of balers or compactors, and these include:
- Retailers / Supermarkets
- Shopping Centres
- Food Producers / Manufacturers
- Hotels / Restaurants
- Garden Centres
- Car Dealers / Garages
- Offshore / Shipping
There are more industries on top of those that can benefit from them too, so if you are in one of those named above, or you feel like your business could do with taking a look at getting a few of these machines in, take a look at Miltek for your requirements.
