Kenburn Waste Management

You have reached Kenburn Waste Management - We are a leading supplier of waste handling machinery and consumables. We supply equipment from highly regarded European manufacturers with a superior range of waste compactors, vertical and horizontal balers. We stock both new and refurbished machines, which are available to rent or buy.

Free site audits to assess your requirements are available on request and we will ensure that Risk Assessments and Method Statements are available to you for each installation.

Vertical Balers
A wide range of demands for waste handling are covered by an extensive range of both vertical which are simple to operate and are designed with safety in mind. Waste is transformed into solid blocks of material that can be recycled and transported easily, saving your business space, time and money.

These freestanding machines have a vertically mounted press ram. The baler is typically fed by hand, with each finished bale being ejected from the chamber once made. Vertical balers have a relatively small footprint so are easy to site and the cross cylinder design on the Europress Balex Baler range allows the overall height of the machine to be substantially reduced.

Europress Balex Balers
Balex balers are heavy duty, well-engineered machines, designed and manufactured in Finland. They are equipped with cross cylinders and have a fast cycle time. They are very quiet in operation and their low height, makes it very easy to position them in most environments. They are ideally suited for baling a wide range of materials including cardboard and plastics. Switching between waste streams is made easy because the user can switch between two modes of operation, one for cardboard and the other for plastics.

Balex balers comply fully with EN16500, a 2015 European standard prescribing high levels of safety for all newly manufactured vertical balers. The standard encompasses the design and manufacture of the baler, together with the information about how the machine is used safely.

All Balex Balers are supplied with a two year warranty.

Refurbished Balers
Kenburn supplies a selection of refurbished balers from Bramidan’s Basic and X-Series ranges. Without compromising on quality, the Basic Series Balers provide a cost effective solution for the less intensive user, whilst their highly effective press force produces dense bales. Bramidan’s X-Series Vertical Balers are heavy duty machines, and their cross cylinder design ensures stable compression and a low overall height. Bramidan’s Multi Chamber Balers are ideally suited to and very effective in handling multiple waste streams such as cardboard and plastics, which means that waste can be segregated but baled in the same machine.

Horizontal Balers
Horizontal balers are an ideal solution for handling large volumes of packaging materials or waste. The operator can manually bind the bales, or this can be achieved automatically by the machine. Kenburn Select horizontal balers are highly reliable, efficient machines with outstanding build quality.

Industrial Waste Compactors
There are a number of different types of waste compactors in the Bergmann range of dry and wet waste compactors that are designed to suit a range of materials and requirements. Portable and static waste compactors hold much waste than a skip, meaning far fewer collections.

Portable Waste Compactors
Bergmann and Avermann Portable compactors are either chain-lift (skip lift), or roll-on/roll-off and the container is taken to a waste site to be emptied.

Static Waste Compactors
The Kenburn Select Static Compactor crushes waste in containers and whilst the compactor stays on your site, the container is taken away for emptying. We can help you identify the most suitable waste compactor to meet your needs. Designed and manufactured in Great Britain for Kenburn, these machines represent excellent value for money. They are well built, solid and simple in function.

Bergmann Jumbo Roll Packers
On this compactor a rolling drum with teeth is used to tear and compact bulky materials in open containers..

Bergmann Roto Compactors
These are very versatile machines, using a revolving drum to tear up almost any materials, producing sacks of waste for easy disposal.

Bergmann Wet Waste Compactors
These are Portable waste compactors and are specially designed to trap moisture content, whilst minimising odours and spillage.

"Kenburn is one of the best companies I've worked with in Ability Place."

Absolutely great service. We purchased a reconditioned cardboard baler and the machine has been completely overhauled with new electricals and components. Gordon and Jane have been excellent to deal with all the way through. Now making money out of cardboard which we used to pay to dispose of. Win! Thanks for all your advice and help.

Peter Grant, Stockeld Park

As part of our existing environmental policy and our commitment to on-going improvements within the Park’s operations department we wanted to ensure that none of our recyclable cardboard waste ended up in landfill. As one of North Yorkshire’s premier family attractions our shop and kitchen generate large volumes of waste cardboard which we were previously throwing into a skip and being charged for disposal. We contacted Kenburn Waste Management who visited the Park and with a brief no obligation waste survey recommended their Europress Balex 10 baler would be the ideal solution. What gave us even more reassurance that this was the right machine for us was the fact it came with a full two year parts and labour warranty as opposed to the more usual 12 month warranty.” Installing a baling machine has made an enormous difference to Stockeld Park and we’re now obtaining revenue for a waste product we previously had to pay to be taken away so it’s a win – win scenario.

Andrew Littlejohns, Princesshay

The overall service from the time of the initial enquiry to the actual delivery was first rate and quick. The baler itself is working brilliantly and is so quiet compared to our other baler. We have no hesitation in recommending the services provided by Kenburn Waste. We would encourage any company interested in improving their waste management operation or replacing any existing equipment to consider using their services.

John Mahan, Just Paper Tubes

Over the last fifteen years, we've been delighted with both the service provided by Kenburn, as well as the performance of our Bramidan baler. When we were ready to replace the machine, we only ever considered buying a Bramidan baler from Kenburn.

Neil Dowds, Pincroft Dying and Printing Company Ltd

We've been extremely impressed with not only the performance of the compactor we've had for many years, but also with the after sales service that Kenburn offer in terms of support and maintenance. Our old compactor has performed reliably for as long as I can remember thanks to the excellent service we've received from Kenburn, but like with any capital equipment nothing lasts forever. When we needed to replace the machine, we didn't even bother talking to other suppliers due to the excellent relationship we've had with Kenburn. They know us and what we do and most importantly are aware of the volumes and types of waste streams we generate.

“We purchased a bale press recently from Kenburn and I wanted to say “Thank you” for the superb service we received. From originally selecting the item from your website, down to the installation and induction of the product to my staff, the level of customer services we have received is amazing. I will not hesitate to use your company again in the future and I would highly recommend your company.”
