Mobile Compactors

For waste management in any working environment.

Portable Compactors were traditionally used for commercial / general waste which is sent to landfill. Nowadays, where recycling is the preferred option, they are increasingly used for recyclable materials such as plastics and cardboard. RiverRidge will accept compacted cardboard as readily as baled card.

Once full (indicated by a full or three-quarters-full warning light) the Portable Compactor is simply collected, taken away to be emptied, and returned to site.

Portable Compactors are available in chain lift, otherwise known as ‘skip lift’ compactors, or roll-on/roll-off formats (hook lift). The smaller machines are usually supplied as chain lift and can be easily transported by skip lift vehicles. Roll-on/roll-off compactors are picked up using hook lift vehicles, and are typically larger machines and require suitably equipped trucks for transporting.

Compactors are ideal for large volume recycling and waste producers where space is limited, and tidy sites are essential for busy well managed companies.

RiverRidge can supply a range of sizes and container types, but typically with 18, 30, 35 and 40 yard capacity.

For organisations producing larger volumes of recyclables, we can reduce the number of collections required by using compaction and baling equipment. This achieves maximum capacity payloads for every container, significantly reducing unnecessary journeys, reducing fuel consumption and, as a result, reducing the customers carbon foot print & enhancing their environmental performance.

Compactors are suitable for Commercial / General Waste, mixed recyclables and, if suitable, food waste producers such as hotels and restaurants.

Waste can be reduced by a significant ratio of its original volume, depending on the material being compacted, which also means you need less storage space on site.

Recycling compaction can improve hygiene, increase security and reduce fire risk, significantly contribute to health and safety on site by reducing the amount of loose waste residue sometimes found on busy commercial sites.

NB: Sizes may vary depending on manufacturer.
