Lidless PET Compress / Recycle Facility

Lidless PET Compress
Lidless PET Compress

In public recycle facility PET bottles are most needed to compress and people often forget about it.


The Lidless PET Compress has a wide opening that can accommodate plural bottles and a gap for the incompressible bottle (plastic lid unmoved) to reach out for people to remove them.

First put all your bottles in the machine. Then, pull the grip and rotate it, all the bottle will be compressed one by one and fall down. When encounter bottle with a lid, It will not fall down but show up the lid of the PET in the gap to notice people to take off the lid. Not until people remove the lid, could the it have enough strength to squeeze it down.
