Should I Rent a Dumpster or a Trash Compactor?

News & Updates Should I Rent a Dumpster or a Trash Compactor?

Choosing the Right Commercial Trash Compactor for Your Business

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.

Creates Space

Trash compactors also help you save more space as they crush bulky trash into cubes.


Reduces Your Hauling Costs

More often than not, compressed trash can fit into a single truckload. This results in fewer trips to the recycling or disposal plant, saving your company time and money

Easy to Operate

Trash compactors only need the touch of a button from the operator to complete their job of turning all your trash into neat and tiny cube-shaped packages. At Waste Equipment Rentals & Sales we offer employee training to ensure your operators remain safe.

Reduces External Dumpster Problems & Improves Sanitation
