Why should I use a trash/waste compactor?

A trash compactor will crush various materials a company discards from its daily operations, which reduces the frequency a collection truck is needed. With less truck traffic, the pavement life is greatly extended. Additionally, wind-blown debris, pilferage, and unauthorized disposal are eliminated.

Are compactors an economic benefit?

Yes. By squeezing the air out of bulky items, a compactor lowers your monthly expenditures for waste removal. In many cases, a compactor system can pay for itself in just a few years.

Is there more than one type of compactor?

There are many types and sizes of compactors. Self-contained units are typically found in high liquid environments such as hotels, hospitals, restaurants, and multi-family housing. Stationary units are used by retail, distribution, manufacturing and office buildings. Pre-crushers are for large, bulky items such as white goods, furniture, crating, etc. Balers are suitable for recycling old cardboard boxes, clothing, aluminum and plastics.
