Hire a Compactor

We have a range of compactors to help your business reduce how much space its waste takes up, decreasing your collection costs and saving you time. While they are often neglected in favour of skips and wheelie bins, compactors are ideal for small premises that produce mass volumes of waste.

Our compactors specialise in a mixture of materials, including dry mixed recycling like cardboard, aluminium and plastic, non-recyclable materials, and construction and food waste.

Bywaters offer a unique compactor which is much smaller than a traditional waste compactor. But don’t let the size fool you – it can still compact four tonnes of material at a time. We have 14, 18, 26 and 32-yard portable compactors for food, wet waste and dry mixed recycling. Our equipment range extends to static compactors, which come in a variety of styles and can even be custom-designed by our in-house engineers to fit your space.

Compactor Hire FAQs

Using our compactor hire service limits the amount of storage space you need onsite. Able to hold large amounts of waste, a compactor will also reduce the number of trips you need to make back and forth to empty the container, saving time, money and reducing your business’s carbon footprint.

A compactor has a hydraulic metal ram at the top of the container, which crushes the waste to reduce its surface area. Once the operator has loaded the compactor and secured it, the ram is activated, and compacting begins.

Most material can be compacted, but there are some exceptions. Toxic flammable and explosive materials, batteries and liquids should never enter a compactor, as the pressure applied during the process can result in destruction and injury.
