Add a summary paragraph here on equipment.


Compactors are a great way to store large volumes of waste paper in a safe and secure environment, which also reduces the risk of fire.

View the compaction chamber in the picture gallery below, which is fed by a combination of wheelie bins and a fully integrated air system blowing paper from the factory, alternatively you can tip our plastic crates. The lifting equipment is always enclosed with a door that is interlocked with the baler for safety.

A Prima owns 40 cubic yard containers, which are an economical means of collecting large volumes of waste paper. A tipper skip can be supplied.

Wheelie Bins can be supplied when emptying paper into a compactor using a side loader

Plastic Crates

All of our Plastic Crates can be supplied with a dolly as shown in the picture. This allows you to move the crate around your factory without using a fork or pallet truck. These dollies remain on your premises.


  • 1,100 Litre Plastic Crate 1200mm (L) x 1000mm (W) x 1200mm (H) (ideal height for large volumes of waste)
  • 750 Litre Plastic Crate with collapsible sides 1200mm (L) x 1000mm (W) x 975mm (H)
  • 600 Litre Plastic Crate 1200mm (L) x 1000mm (W) x 760mm (H) (ideal height for guillotine waste. Lids can be supplied)

In addition to standard crates, we can supply bespoke receptacles for special items such as reels.

Mini Air System

A Mini Air System is a great tool for picking up trim that otherwise is blown to the floor. This system comes as a kit for easy assembly.

A cage for collecting the waste trim can be located away from the bindery area so you have more room to operate


Large printers can opt for a baler installation. Prima can also supply manpower to operate the baler.

See our Gallery below for baler images.

Compaction Equipment

Compaction equipment is often used by printers and print finishers. Waste that can not be conveyed by an air system, such as large sheets, can be emptied direct into the compactor chamber by means of wheelie bins or using our plastic crates (as shown in below gallery).
