The Hopper Compactors are typically for indoor operation (at Street Level) near an outside wall in close proximity to where haulers can make their container tips.  They can be loaded from the top, one side or both sides.

These compactors are great for trash rooms, especially those behind the walls of busy hallways (such as college residence halls) where the compactor can sit behind a wall with an access door that students can throw their trash into from the hallway (while being isolated from the compactor itself).

This Hopper Compactor works in conjunction with Front Load or Rear Load Steel Containers that are tipped onsite by Haulers. The Heavy Duty Steel Containers are on large casters for easy transport to the hauler tipping area. These Compactors are great for many applications, especially applications where ceiling height is limited. This includes Apartments, Office Buildings, Hospitals, Medical Centers, Nursing Homes and more.  

When the steel container becomes full, it is simply wheeled to the hauler tipping area for pick-up. Depending upon trash volume, it is oftentimes useful to have one or more extra containers that can be used with the compactor (while the full containers are awaiting pick-up by the hauler).

The Hopper Compactors are also designed with safety and user friendliness in mind.
