Labor Productivity & Efficiency
Smart-Packs become full no more than 1 time per day, therefore they can
be emptied on a scheduled basis during daylight and off-peak hours. Time
consuming trips to the dumpster can be dramatically reduced when waste
is compacted where it is generated. This not only reduces labor
requirements for waste processing, but also greatly improves overall
labor productivity since daily 'work routines' can become more refined.
With typical trash profile, the equivalent capacity of up to 10 or more
of the 25-gallon (regular) trash receptacles can be deposited in each
Smart-Pack before being emptied. Employees can use this saved time
tending to customers rather than trash duties.
A reduction in trips to the dumpster by employees can help
reduce the risk of pilferage, robberies, excessive breaks and unattended
customers. Since Smart-Packs help address leakage
problems associated with regular bins, the risk of 'Slips and Falls' can
be reduced. Fire hazards, due to temporary trash storage (while awaiting
dumpster trips) can also be reduced.
Sanitation and Enhanced Image
Containerized, compacted waste is cleaner, safer and neater.
Unsanitary trash spills and overflows are reduced or eliminated inside
the establishment and around dumpsters. Customers no longer have to
experience the horrible sights and smells that are common with regular
bins (especially when emptied). In addition, keeping
trash compacted and contained reduces vermin and rodents around
dumpsters and inside the establishment. A cleaner,
fresher dining environment invites more customers.
Incredible Savings & Payback
Waste Hauling Savings
Loose, non-compacted trash can occupy up to 20 - 25 times more dumpster
space than compacted waste. Waste hauling costs can
oftentimes be reduced by as much as 50% or more, due to a decrease in
dumpster tips & fewer and/or smaller dumpsters.
properly each Smart-Pack has the potential to reduce trash related labor
requirements by as much as 1 - 2 hours per day per Smart-Pack. General
labor and lack of productivity attributable to trash related duties and
associated tasks (such as constant demands of overflowing trash bins and
mopping up leakage from the dining area floors) can be replaced with
much more productive uses of time (such as tending to customers and
revenue producing activities).
For example, a regular
trash bin that has to be emptied or tended to
approximately every 40 - 50 customers' (waste deposits) would translate
into an average of about 400 -
before the Smart-Pack reaches "full" capacity or needs to be tended to.
And this does not include the extra employee attention
that is normally required for regular trash bins as a result of 'leaks
and spills' and trash bin overflows. When utilized and cared for
properly, each Smart-Pack has the potential to produce direct labor
productivity benefits that can be significant.
Bag Usage Reduction
Replace the use of approximately 10 - 15 liners with only
one heavy duty bag used with the Smart-Packs (and this is assuming that
the regular bins are only single-lined). Substantial savings can
Return on Investment & Capital Savings
Considering labor productivity benefits and and waste hauling
savings alone, paybacks can be less than 2 years (not to mention tax
benefits, depreciation and other savings and benefits). By
leasing, immediate savings may be realized in the very first month.
Under normal conditions, the Smart-Pack should last many years longer
than traditional trash bins.
Daily Amortized Net Benefits (Investment vs
With proper use, a Smart-Pack investment of $2 to $4 per unit
per day can yield paybacks of $8 to $10 per unit per day, with potential
net daily benefits of around $4 to $8 per Smart-Pack
Smart-Packs offer many other advantages:
- With the
System, Smart-Packs in lower traffic locations can continue to accept
trash for up to 1 week without having to be emptied, free of odor
concerns. In addition to allowing lower volume
locations the opportunity to achieve excellent paybacks in the same
manner as high volume
locations, this feature also addresses odor and sanitation
concerns that are normal with trash bin areas in general (even when the
regular bins are constantly being changed).
- The weight / volume of the compacted trash (when the unit
signals "full") can be adjusted by user controls.
- With the Programming System, Smart-Packs can easily broadcast
messages of your choice to customers. Simply download existing or
custom-made sound files into the Smart-Pack. This is a great source of
advertising and entertainment.
- The Smart-Packs allow more opportunities and flexibility with
marketing programs that would otherwise generate too much trash to
- Even under unusual circumstances such as power outages,
Smart-Packs can be adapted so that they are always available for your
patrons waste deposits.
- Automatic and Manual compaction capabilities.

Employees LOVE Smart-Packs!...
Customers have less 'resistance' to
throwing away their trash which reduces employees time in cleaning
Employees can tend to customer service rather
than trash tasks
No longer have to touch unsanitary trash & deal
with leaking trash bags
Employees like the 'no-handling' system of
Employees keep higher morale since trash
related duties can sometimes feel degrading.
- No longer have to push on an unsanitary waste deposit door to
throw away trash
- Dine-in customers have much less chance of exposure to the
horrible sights & smells associated with trash related tasks of
- No longer have to witness the trash bins constantly being
emptied while dining
- No more trash bin overflows in dining area or dumpster
overflows in and around the parking lot.
- Employees can focus on customers rather than trash
- Creates a cleaner, more presentable dining atmosphere
- Friendly, inviting messages can sound as waste deposits are
made by patrons. This is a great source of advertising or entertainment.
Physically Challenged Patrons benefit...
It is much easier for physically challenged
patrons to throw away their trash. The waste deposit door opens
automatically and remains open for the duration of the waste deposit.
