News & Updates How Could a Waste or Recycling Compactor Improve Your Business?

Posted On: Feb 8, 2021

A compactor is used to compress large volumes of trash or recycling before the hauling company picks it up and delivers it to the landfill or recycling facility. Compactors can reduce the waste hauling expenses because compacted trash takes up less space. There are a multitude of other benefits to either purchasing or renting a waste or recycling compactor. We've included a list of these below. Please keep in mind that their are a variety of styles and options available to fit any businesses needs and budget. Compactors range from small compactors inside of fast food restaurants or apartment complexes to large industrial compactors. Regardless which option you choose the benefits remain the same.

Here are 9 reasons why your business should invest in a trash compactor.

  1. Prevent unauthorized access – A trash compactor cannot be easily accessed by unauthorized personnel, which will prevent people from filling your dumpster with their trash.

  2. Reduce odors – Some trash compactors are liquid-tight and air-tight to minimize odors. Scheduling a pressure wash will also reduce odors coming from your compactor and the surrounding area.

  3. Reduce vermin and insects – Air-tight trash compactors will keep unwanted pests from invading your trash.

  4. Reduce litter from wind-blown debris – In dumpsters and bins, loose trash can easily blow away. Compacted trash will stay put because it’s compressed in a sealed container.

  5. Improve the appearance of your business – With less trash in sight, the appearance of your business will look neater and more appealing to customers.

  6. Save space – Compacting your trash will help you save floor space and dumpster space.

  7. Gain better control of liquid waste – Self-contained compactors are designed to store and transport wet wastes.With a self-contained compactor, the compactor and receiver box stay permanently joined for compaction and emptying, minimizing leakage. If your business disposes of food waste, wet waste, or granulated materials that could leak when separating a container from the compactor, then you should consider a self-contained compactor.

  8. Improve employee efficiencies – Your staff will spend less time taking out the trash and can use their time on other tasks.

  9. Save money – With the trash compacted, your trash haulers will not need to pick up your trash as frequently, saving you money on your monthly hauling expenses.
