Waste recycling equipment FAQs

What is the difference between a baler and a compactor?

The difference between balers and compactors is: Baler: A baler is a machine that compresses recyclable materials into tightly bound bales. Balers are typically used to process cardboard, paper, plastic, and metal. The bales are then transported to recycling facilities where they are sorted and recycled. Compactor: A compactor is a machine that compresses waste materials into a smaller volume. Compactors are typically used to process trash and other general waste. The compacted waste is then transported to landfills or incinerators.

What machines are used for mechanical recycling?

The machines used for mechanical recycling include: Balers Compactors Shredding machines Washing machines Sorting machines Densifiers These machines are used to separate, clean, and prepare recyclable materials for reprocessing.

What are compactors used for?

Compactors are used to reduce the volume of waste materials. This can help to save space in landfills and incinerators, and it can also reduce the transportation costs associated with waste disposal. Compactors are typically used to process trash, but they can also be used to process recyclable materials.

What are the different types of compactors?

There are two main types of compactors: Stationary compactors: Stationary compactors are typically used in large facilities, such as warehouses and office buildings. They are typically mounted on the floor and they require a dedicated space. Portable compactors: Portable compactors are typically used in smaller facilities, such as retail stores and restaurants. They are typically wheeled and they can be moved from place to place as needed.

What type of waste can you put into a compactor?

The type of waste that can be put into a compactor depends on the type of compactor. Stationary compactors typically can handle a wider variety of waste materials than portable compactors. Materials that can be compacted into smaller volumes include: Light materials Bulky packaging Bags of waste High volume materials If you’re unsure on what your compactor can handle, get in touch and our team will be happy to help.

What not to put in a commercial compactor?

Hazardous materials: Hazardous materials, such as chemicals, batteries, and medical waste, should never be put in a compactor. These materials can pose a safety hazard to waste disposal workers and they can also contaminate the environment. Food waste: Food waste can attract pests and it can also produce foul odours. It is best to dispose of food waste in a separate container. Large objects: Large objects, such as furniture and appliances, can damage the compactor. It is best to dispose of large objects in a different way.
