Which waste fractions do you struggle with?

Soft plastic

Soft plastic

Foil and soft plastic is found in many different products, but the majority occurs as stretched film or plastic wrapping of goods delivered on pallets. It can also be in the form of carrying bags or waste bags.

Soft plastic is a valuable material for recycling. The price of the material depends on its purity. Good sorted waste gives a higher revenue.

Empty PET bottles

Plastic bottles

PET waste is well-known as bottles for soft drinks or water, but you also find PET in the shape of drinking cups or packaging for smaller foods.

Before you compact plastic bottles, they should be perforated or the capsules removed, otherwise the bottles may still contain a lot of air. Add a piece of cardboard in the top and bottom of the bale.

Plastic cans

Plastic containers or high density bottles are used e.g. for food and liquid cleaners.

You should perforate such bottles or remove the capsules before compaction, otherwise the they may still contain a lot of air. Add a piece of cardboard in the bottom and top of the bale, especially when you compact smaller plastic parts.

Blue plastic barrels

Plastic barrels

Plastic barrels are used in many different industries, such as containers for eg powder, oil, feed and other products.

These barrels can be compressed one at a time in a drum press or you can compact them into bales in our large machines from the X-series balers. We are happy to advise on the right choice.

Computer cases

Computer cabinets or boxes and similar hard plastic are found in computers, televisions and accessories for these products.

Before you compact hard plastic materials, we recommend you to contact us. A baler with high press force and a very strong construction is required for these fractions. We advise on handling and achieving the best results.

Big bags

Big bags are used for transportation of eg wood, gravel and sand. They are also used for storing raw materials; often within off-shore and in agriculture. With the right machine you achieve a very effective compression, even though big bags are difficult to handle.

In case of recycling, we prepare the chamber for this purpose by removing the retainers to avoid damage on the bags.

We recommend these machines for plastic waste:
