Mixed waste compactors - Compacting know-how

Mixed waste, often referred to as general waste, effects most businesses and is often thrown into bins or skips without a second thought. However, it can be reduced in volume in a clean and efficient manor; saving money, time and encourages staff use of recycling procedures.

The effective and hygienic compaction of dry, semi-dry or organic mixed waste in bags is a classic Orwak concept!

From compacting in to a bag or wheelie bin, through to large container compactors, there is a solution for every waste issue large and small. Check out our recommendations below for more information.
