Gradeall has worked for many years with councils in both the UK and Ireland to reduce the amount of waste that ends up in landfill sites, while also encouraging the use of balers that aid recycling. While there may be demands made upon councils to divert as much waste as possible away from landfill sites we understand that councils must also justify their selection of specific machines through tendering processes. Gradeall offers the most cost-effective and reliable compactors and balers on the market which is shown by the number of councils who currently operate Gradeall machines.
We can manufacture static compactors to suit whatever your council’s requirements may be, our range of static compactors from the G60 super short to the Pre-crush compactor can be specified with a variety of different feed arrangements to make material entry as easy as possible.
Our experienced sales team work with councils allows them to audit their waste output currently, and to determine the most suitable solution to achieve waste reduction and recycling targets, ensuring that the machine installed is capable of providing the optimum performance and waste handling ability for your needs.
We have an extensive network of UK service engineers and provide competitive service and maintenance packages on all our machines. Our compactors are fitted with the Intelli-fill remote monitoring system providing advanced warning of any issues, and permitting remote diagnostics. Intelli-fill will also inform waste collection agencies when containers require emptying.
