Note: Our Trash Compactors - Preliminary Considerations Checklist may be helpful

Stationary Compactors are available in many standard sizes that can also be configured to meet your specific needs. By choosing from a large selection of standard options (such as various hoppers, walk-on or drive on ramps, multi-cycle timers, remote stations and many others) you can tailor a compactor for your circumstances.

Stationary Compactors are typically used for dry waste (i.e. for compacting cardboard and mixed paper etc) and can be positioned so that they are fed by a chute opening that is as simple as a thru-wall arrangement (so that employees do not have to walk outside to make the trash deposits) or fed by an existing air handling system. Unlike Self Contained Compactors, Stationary Compactors compact trash into a detachable Container (such as a 30 yard or 40 Yard Container). Stationary Compactors are designed and built with versatility and durability in mind and are ideal for a large variety of commercial and industrial applications. The quality and compaction force that is provided in both the standard and high density models is tops in the industry. Stationary Compactors can also serve as good Cardboard Compactors or paper compactors, (although not nearly as good as one of our Cardboard Balers).
