Mobile waste compactor

Mobile waste compactor – MWC

The Ecopolymer company produces reliable, powerful and easy-to-use compactors for waste.

This equipment is built on a screw mechanism, where the main component is a powerful screw, which presses the waste into the connected garbage container.

Such devices are most often used for pressing wood, plastic or household waste, but they are also suitable for many other materials.

The use of a compactor provides the enterprise with savings on waste storage and removal.

What is a waste compactor and why do you need one?

A waste compactor is a device used to compact waste tightly before it enters a dumpster or warehouse.

Using a compactor allows you to significantly save space when storing waste and money for removal.

The basis of the compactor is a screw mechanism (or hydraulic press) capable of compressing garbage into compact blocks or compacting them into a container.

Stationary and mobile press compactors – what is the difference?

If the pressing mechanism is combined with the container in a monoblock and cannot be detached, it is a mobile compactor (it must be transported together with the container).

If the pressing mechanism is detached from the container and can remain in place, it is a stationary compactor (only the container is imported).

Advantages of using a waste compactor

Press compactors for waste are used in various enterprises and institutions where it is necessary to effectively manage waste and reduce its volume for further processing or disposal. Some of these businesses include:

  • Reducing the volume of garbage: Compressing garbage allows you to significantly reduce its volume, which makes storage more efficient and economical.
  • Reduced garbage collection costs: Reducing the volume of garbage can also reduce the cost of transporting it, as fewer resources are needed to transport compacted garbage.
  • Landfill space savings: Compact packaging of waste allows for more efficient use of landfill space, which can help delay the need to expand or create new landfills.
  • Saving time and labor: The use of press compactors allows faster and more efficient processing of large volumes of waste, which reduces the time and effort required for their processing.

Considering these advantages, compactors for waste are becoming more and more popular and help enterprises in the organization of efficient work with waste.

Design and principle of operation of the waste compactor

Usually, the complete construction of a press compactor consists of two parts. The first part is for compacting waste (it is the press compactor). The second part is a waste storage container (waste container).

Where are waste compactors used?

Waste compactors are widely used in various fields, including:

  • Industrial enterprises: Large industrial complexes and factories use compactors to treat and dispose of wastes arising from production processes.
  • Shopping centers and supermarkets: Waste treatment facilities help supermarkets and shopping centers manage and compact the large volumes of cardboard, plastic and other materials generated during shopping operations.
  • Restaurants and Hotels: In the hospitality industry, compactors are used to dispose of organic waste such as food and other kitchen waste.
  • Hospitals and medical facilities: In these places, compactors are used for the safe and hygienic disposal of medical waste, which includes plastic materials, textiles and other items.
  • Office buildings: Companies and office buildings use compactors to dispose of paper, cardboard and other office waste generated during work processes.
  • Apartment complexes: In large apartment complexes, for example, in high-rise buildings or complexes with several buildings, compactors can be used to reduce the volume of garbage and facilitate the process of its removal.

These are just a few examples of areas where compactors can be used, and their potential applications can be much wider as they help manage waste effectively and reduce disposal costs.

What kind of waste do compactors press?

Compactors are used to compact almost all types of MSW, except for the strongest materials (such as hard metal products, natural stone and some hard polymers). The main materials that can be pressed with them include:

  • Wood waste: pallets, old furniture, window frames, etc.
  • Plastic waste: Polyethylene, polypropylene, PET bottles and other types of plastic can be compressed for further processing or transportation.
  • Organic waste: Remains of vegetables, fruits and other food products.
  • Paper waste: Used in the pressing of cardboard, paper, corrugated cardboard and other paper products.
  • Metal waste: Presses are used to compress light metal waste such as aluminum cans, aluminum foils, etc.
  • Textile waste: Fabric and textile materials can be pressed to reduce volume before further processing or disposal.

These are the main types of materials that can be compacted with a waste compactor. But depending on specific needs and production processes at the enterprise, other materials can be used.

After pressing, these materials can be sold for processing, for the production of new products from paper, cardboard, plastic, metal, textiles.

Compaction saves space in warehouses, waste containers and trucks during transport. Thereby saving your money and protecting the environment.
