COMPACTORS FOR RECYCLING POLYSTYRENE

Polystyrene is used for packaging in many industries to protect valuable items during transportation. It is also 100% recyclable, with over 100 tonnes being recycled each month in the UK alone*. In some cases, dependent on volume, revenue can also be generated – check the latest market prices....
 

Expanded polystyrene (EPS) is inert and does not de-compose; once it enters land-fill it will stay there forever.

By compacting and recycling Polystyrene you can reduce your existing waste costs by up to 80%, this is achieved by avoiding unnecessary transport costs and reducing bins / skips or lifts required. Save time, space and money, and improve the environment. 

 


Mil-tek EPS900 and EPS1800 Polystyrene Compactors are the perfect solution for compacting and recycling polystyrene. Simple, easy to use and very efficient, our Polystyrene Compactors reduce the volume by 40:1. The polystyrene is compacted into dense, easy to handle blocks which will then be stored ready for collection by an approved recycler.

EPS is used in

Fish
Providing protection and insulation, EPS boxes keep fish and seafood fresh during transit.

 

Fresh produce
Delicate fruits, vegetables and mushrooms are protected from bruising in EPS boxes.

The boxes insulate to maintain optimum freshness, are resistant to moisture and do not break apart in unfavourable
conditions.

 

Cookers, fridges,
dish/washing machines

are cost effectively protected by cleverly designed, minimal EPS packaging, often used in combi-nation with other plastics. The result is improved ware-house handling, reduced returns and customer satisfaction when a product arrives at their home in perfect
condition.

Computers and TVs
and other fragile, high value items are protected by EPS packs, not only from being dropped in transit, but also from damage whilst they are stacked in the warehouse.

 

Automotives
EPS moulds are individually designed to fill complex voids in floors, door and roof linings. This allows the designer to change the height and shape of the interior.

 

Electrical
EPS protects against dust, damp and rough handling. It can be given antistatic coating to protect sensitive microchips.

Medical & Pharmaceutical Life-saving items such as vaccines and internal organs are kept safe and insulated when transported in EPS packs.

Horticulture
Plants are raised in EPS trays because they retain warmth, maintain an ambient temperature and are water resistant. And, their rigidity makes them easy to handle.

 

Bicycle Helmets
The same shock absorption properties of EPS make it perfect for bicycle helmets and infant car seats.

 

Housing
EPS moulds are used to form a Lego-style framework into which concrete is poured.
Buildings can be erected quickly and enjoy high levels of acoustic and thermal insulation.
