Compacting Dumpsters

  Compacting Dumpster - 6 Yard Front Load

Main Benefits and Features of these Compactors:

1. Theoretically each of these compactors can replace 4 - 5 of the standard traditional dumpsters since they achieve a compaction ratio of 4 to 1 or 5 to 1 depending upon trash profile. The 6 Yard Compacting dumpster will hold roughly 25 - 30 cubic yards of trash before it needs to be 'tipped' by the hauler.

2. These Compactors are designed to be utilized (or 'tipped') by either Front Load Hauler trucks or Rear Load Hauler trucks.

3. For customers already using traditional dumpsters, these compacting dumpsters can be an excellent step towards reducing waste hauling requirement significantly especially where existing procedures are already built around dumpster usage and locations.

Vertical Outdoor Compactors

Compactor Compactor

 

4 Yard Front Load Vertical Compactor 

               

Main Benefits and Features of these Compactors:

1. The Vertical Outdoor Compactors are especially useful when hauler access is difficult but an outdoor compactor is necessary. Two of the models (2 yard & 3 yard) are available with casters on the containers so that the full containers can easily be wheeled to a location that is convenient for hauler 'tipping'. With the larger models OSHA prohibits the casters so if they are to be moved (for the convenience of hauler tipping) this must be considered. Oftentimes extra containers are purchased so that an empty container can be placed in the compactor while the full one is awaiting pick-up.  

2. These compactors can also be placed adjacent to a building and chute fed through a wall so that employees do not have to walk outside to make trash deposits.

2. With the mini-packs they are tipped onsite by the Front Load Hauler trucks versus the container being hauled to the disposal site.   

3. Since the footprint is so small versus a traditional Self Contained Compactors these are excellent choices where space is very confined.

Outdoor compactors can substantially reduce waste hauling requirements. Choosing the right type of outdoor compactor depends on many factors such as trash volume, accessibility for haulers, how it will be fed, overall security and housekeeping considerations, and many other circumstances. With the right product, paybacks can be as little as one year or less.
