Plastics & Packaging Waste Management
Commonly used in packaging or as insulation, expanded polystyrene (EPS) is made up of 98% air and is 100% recyclable.
Due to its light weight and often large volumes, EPS can take up a massive amount of unnecessary space in your bins (and in landfill, if that’s where it ends up). Plus, it’s non-biodegradable so putting it in the ground definitely isn’t a ‘solution’.
EPS Compactors can help reduce your volumes by up to 90% on-site, offering a significant decrease in your total waste volume and its storage and disposal costs. The machine heats and compresses EPS into small blocks that can be re-sold and manufactured into a variety of plastic products such as stationery items, plant pots and coat hangers.
