Balers & Compactors

Where waste is produced in large volumes, waste handling equipment can provide the perfect solution for negotiating large quantities of waste more sustainably and cost effectively. It can also help reduce the amount of traffic on and off site too.

At Zest Recycle we can provide a wide range of compaction units suited to your individual needs.

  • Static compactors – These compaction units remain on site and the container is attached to the compactor. Once full, the container is exchanged for an empty container. Typically, static compactors are more proficient at compacting waste compared to other machines, but are more suitable for drier waste streams.
  • Portable compactors – These machines house the compactor and container in one unit and are more suitable for wetter waste, such as food contaminated waste, as they are sealed completely.


Balers are ideal for sites producing large quantities of cardboard, paper, plastics and materials which can have a high value and return a healthy rebate. We can provide a wide range of baling equipment, from mill-size and horizontal plastic balers to rotary bag compactors. So, no matter your unique waste management needs, you can guarantee that we have a solution for you.

Here at Zest Recycle, we try to be as flexible as possible when it comes to developing your waste management strategy, which is why we provide a wide range of finance options and maintenance agreements for your waste handling equipment needs.

We have access to a wide range of compaction and baling equipment suppliers, ensuring you are getting the best solution whilst meeting the necessary safety standards. We will also ensure the relevant training is provided for the installation of your equipment.
