The present invention discloses a device for compacting waste (plastic bales and foils in aluminum or manufactured in cellulose) inside plastic bottles (commonly referred to as eco-bricks) comprising a base (1) with a vertical support (2) attached to a horizontal support (9) acting as a lever to transfer force to a vertical support (6). A mobile head adaptable to the volume of the bottle is coupled to the vertical end. The moving head comprises two axes (12, 13) that move independently axially, causing retractable extendable arms (17) to expand to compress waste more quickly and efficiently within the bottle.
