A Pressing Issue: Commercial Compactors

Friday, March 29, 2019

Should you have a commercial compactor added to your waste management plan?

Tired of paying to haul air along with your trash? Are you emptying your dumpsters at least five days a week? Is reducing your carbon footprint a priority? Answer yes to any of these questions, and you should press to have a commercial compactor added to your waste management plan.

Reliable compactors offer an average three-to-one compaction ratio, which means three hauls are reduced to one depending upon the waste materials. Adding a Wi-Fi-enabled monitor allows you to remotely check the fullness of the compactor to further maximize the load.

There are two types of commercial compactors—self-contained and stationary compactors—and both are available in sizes ranging from 15 to 40 cubic yards. The major differences are the types of waste suitable for each and whether the entire unit or just the receiver box is hauled away once full.

Both types of compactors free up storage space inside your facility and possibly outside depending on how many dumpsters the unit will replace. They also eliminate safety hazards associated with piles of trash and discourage theft, scavengers and neighborhood dumping.

An analysis of your waste stream is the best way to determine the appropriate size and type of compactor for your operations, as well as the financial benefits. In our experience, a compactor reduces waste costs around 80 percent of the time. Adding a baler could boost the savings depending upon the waste generated.
