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.

Static compactors are a permanent fixture on your site and are capable of utilising different size containers. The lack of movement of static compactor means it can withstand more pressure translating into higher payloads and it is less likely to be damaged. In contrast, portable compactors have the utility to move around and can visit different sites.
