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!

  • Orwak Flex 4110 Compactor

    The 4110 in-bin compactor efficiently reduces the volume of bagged waste. Probably the safest on the market in this sector, fitting various bin types and sizes.

    Based in a simple wheel-in, wheel out operation, the compactor can be adapted to fit most common standard four-wheeled bins on the market. Its design relieves the pressure on the wheels of the bin and protects them from being damaged during compaction. With a 3 tonne pressforce, compaction ratio is 4:1 to 8:1 dependent on type of waste.

    Ideal for hotels and restaurants, where a huge amount of general waste is generated and a large amount of bins onsite.

    Example of Waste Streams:

    Any bagged general waste, if it can be squashed it can go in!
