Wheelie bins are suitable for most light industrial and commercial waste. They are made of durable high-density polyethylene and are easy to clean. This system is ideal for any size of business from small shops to large industry. We offer a commercial wheelie bin collection service for general waste, recycling, glass and organic waste.  We also offer a collection service for cardboard and plastic bales.


WERS can also provide a system for the more bulky types of waste that may not be suitable for smaller bins. We can provide open or enclosed containers in varying sizes that are left on site until ready for collection. Again we can designate containers permanently to your site.


You can contact us on 093 24027 (Connacht) or 074 9164718 (Donegal) to discuss your commercial waste disposal options.


Waste compactors are used where high volumes of mixed waste or certain recyclable materials are generated on site.Compactors can be manually filled with bags of waste, or they can be fitted with a bin lift to allow safe and convenient emptying of wheelie bins.

There are two types of compactors:

Static Compactor

The compactor mechanism is fixed on site,permanently wired to the electrical supply and are best suited for use with dry materials. These boxes provide a larger capacity than the portable compactor. For servicing, the box is disconnected and replaced with an empty box.

Portable Compactor

The compactor mechanism and body is one unit and they are available in a range of sizes. For servicing, the unit is disconnected from the electrical supply and taken to the WERS Materials Recovery Facility (MRF) where it is emptied. It is then returned to the customer and re-connected to the electrical supply. These units are particularly suited to wet waste use as they are not opened on site.


On site balers are used for recyclable materials such as cardboard or plastic. By baling these materials large volumes can be handled and stored efficiently between collections. Balers are available in a range of sizes to suit your application.
