4 Reasons a Trash Compactor is Good for your Business

News & Updates 4 Reasons a Trash Compactor is Good for your Business

Posted On: November 26th, 2019

At Waste Equipment Rentals & Sales we strive to provide the best service possible for your waste equipment needs. Deciding whether or not to rent a dumpster or a trash compactor can be a tricky decision. Here is some information to take into account before making a final decision.


Dumpsters typically range from 10-Yard containers to 30-yard containers. They are often emptied by a waste hauler on a weekly or biweekly basis.

Trash Compactor

Trash compactors are best utilized by those who produce high volumes of trash. Trash compactors fit more trash than dumpsters because the trash is compressed every time the trash is dumped into it. A trash compactor doesn’t fill up as quickly as a dumpster due to the compressed trash and therefore doesn’t need as many pickups by the waste hauler. There are self contained compactors, stationary compactors, and vertical compactors. Companies such as retail and shopping centers, restaurants, or hospitality businesses who have high traffic and generate a lot of trash daily benefit from using compactors.

Dumpster or Trash Compactor?

1. How much trash do you generate? Does your current dumpster constantly overflow? If so, a trash compactor may be a better option that a dumpster since you will fit more trash in the same area.

2. Do you see a cost-savings potential for waste hauling costs? If your waste hauler charges per pickup, a trash compactor could provide significant savings with fewer pickups.

3. Can you afford new waste management equipment? Of course, the cost for any new equipment needs to be considered. At Waste Equipment Rentals & Sales we have a compactor rental for your specific needs depending on your type of waste, volume, and facility layout. With both rental and sales options for the following: stationary compactors, self contained compactors, shredders, trash chutes, tippers, receiver boxes, apartment compactors, and front load compactors.
