Frequently Asked Questions


Why should I use a trash/waste compactor?
A trash compactor will crush various materials a company dicards 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 diposal 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.
