Recycling Machinery Certified Training

A vital part of the PUWER regulations (Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations) and a commitment to the health and safety of your staff is for all your operators to be trained in the safe use of your equipment.

What is PUWER? (Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations)

PUWER is short for the Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations 1998 (1999 in Northern Ireland). The regulations deal with the work machinery and equipment operated every day in workplaces and intends to keep people safe wherever equipment and machinery is used at work.

Does Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations apply to you?

PUWER regulations apply to work activities throughout the whole of Great Britain and to installations offshore including gas supply platforms and oil rigs. PUWER applies to:

  • Employers
  • Self-employed and the equipment they use or control
  • Employed persons that supervise or manage the use of equipment operated by others

Mardon recycling always provide training with any new or used equipment we provide and we can do refresher training at any time.

Recycling Machinery Training Objectives we cover include:

  • Advise on use and selection of correct PPE
  • Explanation and demonstration of the equipment
  • Identification of safety features and locations of emergency stops

Our Latest Horizontal Baler Installation

Mardon Horizontal Baler Instillation

Mardon starts 2018 where we finished 2017 with yet another new installation. This time its a horizontal baler at a Midland distribution centre for a major high street name.

We were asked come up with a solution to bale cardboard from both a mezzanine and ground floor. Our solution was to supply one of our Rampack 50 tonne semi-automatic baler with bespoke chute.

Our Rampack semi-automatic range are available with a innovative “easy tie” system as an option which the client thought was must have as it is a real “ time saver”.

A Quick Look Back at 2017 Here at Mardon’s…

BIG names, BIG machinery, BIG satisfaction.

Wickes, Travis Perkins, RGB, and many more big brand names have this year had large equipment installed by Mardon’s as we continue to grow throughout the competitive market place of the waste industry.

However, it is not always about the BIG boys, our RamPack range has equally been successful and continues to prove a popular and reliable product in our range for our customers with smaller waste requirements.

Our continued growth has meant that we have had to expand our team across the country but also our workshop premises. During the year we opened our self-sufficient spray booth unit at our headquarters, where our refurb products get their makeover before leaving ready for their new home.

This year our dedicated team just got stronger. New recruits to the Mardon team throughout the year have settled in well and are really making the difference giving our customers more expertise but also a faster response.


We would like to take this opportunity to thank all of you for continued support and business and we will see you in 2018!

Busy Times at Mardon Recycling Machinery

Trojan Fully Auto baler One

Another MARDON Trojan fully auto baler with conveyor system arriving on its new site ready and awaiting installation by our highly trained and proficient engineers. This time it’s at Travis Perkins distribution centre in Northampton. Working in conjunction with DHL Envirosolutions.

The brief was to introduce a more efficient solution to process the site’s recyclable material including cardboard and plastics. The solution we offered was simple; a new Trojan 500V5 which now enables the site to process their recyclable material swiftly, with a much improved yard layout, allowing them to focus on other more PRESSING tasks!

Our goal was to come up an innovative solution for the Travis Perkins backhaul operation. The key to this solution was the processing of cardboard and plastic at their ultra-busy DC once returned. Mardon Machinery supported Envirosolutions by assisting from the design to install.


Trojan Fully Auto baler Two“Mardon’s kept us fully informed throughout the build and delivery process. The delivery and installation then went exactly to the plan that Mardon’s provided. The result being that we are very impressed with the service we received from Mardon’s.” says Simon Wadsworth – Travis Perkins.


“Delivery was dead on time and the installation process provided by engineers couldn’t have gone any better. Due to this Travis Perkins are now extremely happy with the results delivered” says Ashley Smart – DHL Envirosolutions.


The purchase of new equipment is only the start; in order to keep your new machine in the peak of its performance throughout its life it important to keep it well maintained and is where our factory trained engineers who are strategically situated around the UK come into their own. Trojan Fully Auto baler Three

So, whether you’re looking for a 40kg baler or a fully auto capable of processing up to 12 tonnes per hour give the team at Mardon a call…

An Innovation of Technology…Not to Be Wasted…

The RP8 P9 is part of our comprehensive range of static and portable compactors, which is ideal for wet waste and now also features our latest innovation of technology…

Available, as standard, is our “Mardon Smart Monitoring System” allowing automatic notification and remote supervision of the system, eliminating the need for personnel to report on fill levels and issues.

This clever piece of technology creates an automatic alert, as to the container fill levels, when it is 50%, 75% & 100% full and has to be emptied which can be sent to the customer or their waste management companies as a prompt to collect full containers automatically, as and when required…no more chase up emails required! Furthermore, It also sends messages when errors occur, or when maintenance is required.

Has this got your interest?

The compactors control system features an integrated modem, in which a standard SIM card* is used. The system informs the customer, or waste management company directly, when the containers are to be emptied; the system also informs the service company when the next service is required, or when faults occur. Advance warning by the system, which has the capacity to store 4 different groups, each with up to 10 email addresses, ensuring that any underlying faults can be dealt with before they become serious and nobody is left out of the communications.

All inputs are monitored, analysing which components, switches etc. are active and which are not. In this way, any errors can be found quickly, either directly on the machine or via a technician accessing the compactors control system over the internet to see where the cause of the failure lies. Simple errors can be dealt with in situ remotely, reducing the cost of basic repairs.

Another prominent new feature of the electronic control system is the easily understandable and user-friendly remote service interface. The system allows selection of up to 4 additional setups that are already programmed in the controller to achieve an optimum level of compression with different materials e.g. the pressing of plastic, cardboard, organic waste or residual waste, with each setup configuration altering key operating characteristics to suit the material being processed.

This is simply the innovation of the year…. sit back and let Mardon compactors do the hard work

What Is the Difference Between a Waste Compactor and a Waste Baler?

Here at Mardon Recycling we get asked plenty of questions about the services and equipment that we provide. One of the most frequent queries we seem to find is what is the difference between a waste compactor and a waste baler?

Our staff here at Mardon are experts and have a wealth of knowledge about the waste industry, therefore, the difference to us is clear, but we know that it isn’t necessary clear to all our customers, or those whose skill sets are employed outside of the waste and recycling industry.

So, to explain more, we have put together a little information about the two, so you can see where they differ.

What is a Waste Compactor?

A waste compactor, is, as the name suggests, a machine that will compact waste. These large and heavy duty machines can take mixed waste in large quantities and compress them into a smaller, and more contained amount.

This compacted waste can then be collected by a waste collector and transported to a waste and recycling facility.

What is a Waste Baler?

Whilst a waste compactor is a more all-encompassing form of waste sorting and reduction, a waste baler is more thorough. These particular machines are designed to allow businesses to take out valuable and recyclable materials from their waste stream, creating bales that are then ready for collection.

So, What is the Difference Between a Waste Compactor and a Waste Baler?

Of course, there are some obvious differences between the two types of machines, but for companies who are looking to revise their waste production system, then it can be confusing to know which is the best machine for you.

A waste baler is a preferred method to tackle separated recycling waste streams, for example paper, cardboard, plastic bottles, cans, textiles etc. Not only does a baler mean that you can save space in your premises and create a cleaner environment, but it is also preferred by recycling centres too to maximise the revenue of the bales for shipment abroad.

The recycled materials will be already sorted and ready to go, meaning the collection company won’t have to spend time sorting through it and you will get a better price for your recycled waste.

Not only this, but with landfill sites filling up and the price to tip having increased significantly over the past few years, having a waste baler is a sure-fire way to reduce the amount that you send there and will help the environment too reducing your CO2 omissions.

A waste compactor is great for reducing the space that your waste takes up and gets it ready to be collected. However, it can be more difficult to recycle and sort properly after compaction and most collection companies won’t even bother attempting to sort it as there are higher risks of contaminating materials making their way onto the cardboard and plastic, meaning that they then cannot be recycled.

Waste compactors are more commonly used to compact those waste streams which cannot easily be recycled and may even require specialist destruction and disposal like confidential waste.  Some of these wastes may be sent to an incineration plant to be transformed into a replacement for fossil fuels, alternatively as a last resort, the waste from compactors may go to a landfill site.

Looking for a Waste Compactor and a Waste Baler?

So, if you are a business who is looking at their waste and recycling systems and procedures, why not see if a waste baler or compactor can help? Ideal for a range of industries, these are a great investment to make!

The first step is to get in touch with a member of the Mardon team to request a free waste survey and no obligation quotation.

What are Waste Compactors?

What is a Waste Compactor

Waste compactors compress waste materials thus cutting down the amount of space the waste takes up. For example, a portable waste compactor can contain many times its volume of waste compared to a skip, resulting in less collections and reduced disposal costs.

The benefits a waste compactor can bring:

  • Time savings and increased business efficiency
  • Improved waste management
  • Improvements within the working environment
  • Reduced waste collection costs

Extensive Range of Waste Compactors for Sale

Mardon Recycling Machinery boasts a varied range of portable and static waste compactors for sale, lease or hire.

Portable Compactors

Portable Compactors are available in chain lift, also named ‘skip lift’ compactors, or roll-on/roll-off / hook lift. Chain lifts are normally supplied as smaller machines and can be easily transported by skip lift vehicles. Roll-on/roll-off compactors are picked up using the hooks and are typically larger machines and require suitably equipped trucks for transporting.

Static Compactors

Static compactors are compactors designed and manufactured for use with cardboard, plastics and general waste. They are designed to stay on your site and when the container is full, it is taken away for emptying and a replacement bin is put into position. The compactors are available in a range of sizes dependent on the volume of material the machine will be processing.

We sell a range of RamPak compactors including a drum press, bag press and granulator, as well as the more common static and portable versions.

There are many different types of Waste Compactors, to suit every requirement. If you are looking to improve your waste management systems or want to know more about our range of Waste Compactors, please contact us.

Why it’s Important to Regularly Service your Recycling Machinery

Recycling machinery is vital in any company that is serious about recycling their waste. Whether it is a baler or a compactor, you will want to make sure that it is always performing at its best for you and your business.

Here at Mardon Recycling, we are experts in all things recycling machinery, and we not only regularly service the machinery that we use, but also help our customers to make sure that their machinery is running smoothly too.

With this in mind, we have put together the top reasons why we believe that you should have a regular maintenance and service plan for your recycling machinery.

Reduced Downtime and Increased Productivity

The success of your business is down to how well your machinery is working. Any downtime or reductions in productivity could end up costing you money in the long run. By making sure that you have regular services on your machinery, you will reduce the amount of possible malfunctions, and periods of time that your company isn’t performing.

Save Money

If a baler breaks down then it sometimes can be costly to repair, especially if the problem is difficult to fix. By regularly servicing your equipment you can be made aware of any potential issues before they develop, meaning that you can put in place a solution prior to any problems becoming too large or costly to handle.

Adhere to Expectations of Safety Insurance and Auditors

Running a company that deals with large pieces of machinery means that you will need to be checked by auditors from time to time. You will also need to have some safety insurance to cover your business against any issues or problems that can occur. By doing this you can make sure that you stay on the good side of the companies that will be monitoring your performance.

Be Aware of Safety Precautions

The safety of your staff should always be paramount to any company, however, when running recycling machinery there is an extra element of health and safety that you need to be aware of. Protecting your employees against accident and injury is one of the key points of having regular services carried out, making sure that your machinery is running properly and minimising the risk of any issues popping up.

Think it is about time that you organise a service on your recycling machinery? Want to make sure that it is carried out by an experienced company? Why not get touch with a member of the Mardon team today and see if you can feel the benefit of having regular maintenance checks performed on your baler or compactors.

With our help you can be sure that you will be running efficiently, productively and with the maximum level of safety for your employees.

What Is a Waste Compactor and How Can It Save a Business Money?

what is a waste compactor?Many businesses will rule their waste collection methods with an iron fist, while others may not focus too much on how their refuge is collected. However, the fact of the matter is that if a business doesn’t handle its waste in the right way, it can be paying out much more when it comes to waste collection.

What is a Waste Compactor?

A compactor is a machine that takes discarded rubbish or recycling, and combines into a smaller, more manageable unit. Not only does this make waste and recycling more manageable, it takes up less landfill space where rubbish is concerned. But of course, this isn’t the only benefit associated with compactors.

What Types of Compactor Are There?

There are many types of compactors available, depending on the size of your business. The main 2 options for recycling and waste materials are portable or static.  The main unit of a Static compactor is bolted to the ground and the attached container, which gets filled with the waste material, is exchanged when full.  Portable compactors are one whole unit which is taken away and replaced whenever it needs emptying.  Our dedicated sales team can help you to understand which would be most suitable for your business needs.

Should I Hire or Buy a Compactor?

If your business is thinking about investing in recycling equipment, there are many financial decisions to be made and various options for you to consider. We always recommend you speak to your accountant or financial advisor.  To help you get an idea of the possibilities available to you we have the following options to choose from.

If money is no problem, then you could opt for an OUTRIGHT PURCHASE and utilise the HMRC incentive of Annual Investment Allowance (AIA).  The AIA means that you can claim tax back on qualifying expenditure.

For a lot of businesses, it makes financial sense to use a Finance Company and LEASE New Equipment.  This not only saves your capital and improves your cash flow for other essential business expenses such as stock, wages, advertising etc but the monthly payments you make are treated like rental payments which are an allowable business expense.

Depending on whether you are looking for a NEW or REFURBISHED cardboard / plastic baler or compactor, we also have the ability to offer a HIRE/RENTAL package to suit your needs. With our own fleet of machines on our books we are capable of offering SHORT or LONG term hire/rental packages.

Your accountant will be able to advise you more on any of the above options.

The Benefits of a Compactor

Of course, when deciding as to whether you need a compactor or not, you need to know how it will benefit your business. As well as making the dealing of waste and recycling a less demanding task, it can also help reduce your overall costs when it comes to refuse collection. Evidently you will need to ensure that you’re using the right kind of solution, but with the right advice from a reputable company, you could make huge savings moving forward, which can only benefit a business in the long run.

And there you have it, a general overview of a compactor, and the benefits it can bring. If you’re currently looking for a solution, then why not contact the Mardon Recycling team today. Not only is it a reputable and reliable company, but offers several hire, lease and buy solutions at a cost-effective price. You can also view our range of static and portable compactors here.

The Use of Balers and Baler Consumables Explained

Regardless of the nature of your business, it makes sense that you would want to recycle wherever possible. Not only can recycling help reduce the carbon footprint, but it can also ensure that we’re saving money in some instances. Of course, every business is different, so there has to be a solution available in every instance.

Cardboard is one of the most sought-after materials when it comes to the world of business, so it should come as no surprise that more and more businesses are taking advantage of the benefits that recycling cardboard offers. Of course, some businesses are bigger than others, so may have a more cumbersome task when it comes to the actual recycling process. In this regard, many businesses look towards balers, as well as baler consumables in order to make the process more straightforward.

Why Use a Baler?

Of course, if you’re new to the world of balers, you may be asking yourself as to why you should invest in such a process. Firstly, the use of a baler means that the recycling of cardboard is a much easier endeavour, as it will compact your recycling into bales that can be transported with very little effort. There can also be financial gain when it comes to the recycling of cardboard, so the use of a baler means that you are able to have a more streamlined process on-site.

What Are Baler Consumables?

Although balers do a stellar job of recycling cardboard, the use of consumables means that the bales can be kept in order, as well as being easily identifiable. Depending on your requirements, there are a number of consumables that you can make use of, and example of which are as follows:

Baling Wire

Baling wire is a cost-effective solution for those looking to instil recycling into their business, and provides robust support for recycled bales. Although there are other solutions available, many companies and individuals stick with wire, purely due to its historic use.

Baling Tape

If you’re looking for a balance of great value and great support, then baling tape will offer this abundance. One of the more popular choices when it comes to recycling bales due to being able to preserve the shape of recycled bales. Baling tape is also popular, as it is available in a number of different widths and breaking strain, meaning it is able to contend with a number of different bales,.

Compactor Bags

As the name would suggest, compactor bags are used to contain recycled materials, and make them visible within the workplace. This again makes the transportation of recycled goods easy and straightforward.

There is always a company looking to purchase waste cardboard rather than see it in a landfill, and it means your business is able to make a passive income from its waste. If you’ve not embraced the benefits that recycling balers can offer, then why not contact a member of the Mardon Recycling Team today to discuss your requirements in more detail.

The Benefits of Renting a Waste Baler

Many businesses up and down the country now understand the importance of recycling and managing the levels of waste produced. This has resulted in more and more businesses looking at ways to effectively deal with their waste.

What is a Waste Baler?

A waste baler will bundle together recyclable materials ready to be sent onto a recycling company, many of which will pay you for the privilege of taking away your waste!

They come in a wide range of sizes from compact pieces of equipment that can be used by a single person, right up to large almost industrial balers which can be used on a significant volume of waste.

What are the Benefits of a Waste Baler?

It can increase the amount that you recycle – If something is easier for us, then there is a good chance we will do it more often. This is true for recycling and disposing of waste. Using a baler means that it’s never been simpler or quicker to recycle, encouraging you to do it even more often.

It gives you a tidier and cleaner working environment – As waste that has been baled is smaller, you will feel the benefit of a cleaner and tidier working environment. In turn, this will improve your H&S by reducing fire risk, trip hazards, and vermin to name but a few. Something that everyone can benefit from.

It can reduce your costs – Using one of our fully automatic balers can greatly reduce your labour costs and free your staff up to work on other business requirements.

You will become more environmentally friendly – Distributing baled material uses much less fuel due to reduced number of trips needed, therefore helping to create a sustainable future and reduce your carbon footprint.

Why Rent a Waste Baler?

So, now you know that a baler can be a great addition to any business which produces waste, you may wonder whether it is better to rent or buy the equipment.

We think that for many businesses, renting a baler is a better option; and here is why
