Self Contained Compactors

The most widely used wet-waste compactor in the industry. Found at grocery stores, hospitals, apartment complexes, restaurants, universities, and stadiums.

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. 

 

Self-contained compactors come in a large variety of shapes, sizes, and compaction power.  These machines are designed to store and transport wet wastes. Compactors reduce commercial waste cost by cutting down on the number of times the container needs to be hauled. 
 

 

Ideal For:

  • Retail

  • Manufacturing

  • Healthcare

 

  • Apartments

  • Restaurants

  • Grocery

 

  • Industrial

  • Hotels

  • Malls

Dual Recycling Compactor

Flexible Compaction Solutions

The Dual Recycling Compactor is a dual-purpose self-contained compactor with two separate compartments that enable you to compact a wide range of waste and recycling at one time.

c166e0_b57cbb5180984a37b22b639a3176ac69_

The Dual Recycling Compactor can be fitted with a variety of optional equipment such as through-the-wall security chutes and lockable doghouse hoppers. The Dual Recycling Compactor is well-suited for ground, doghouse, dock, or chute feed applications.

Key Features & Benefits

  • Two separate compartments segregate waste and recyclables, which increases your return on the sales of recycled products

  • Separate, compact, and process two different materials, such as recyclables and garbage, at the same time in an area where space permits only one compactor

  • Both recyclables and garbage are neatly contained after compaction, providing your building, facility, mall, or store with a neat and attractive appearance

Compaction Combinations include: 

  • Garbage

  • Corrugated and high-grade paper

  • Paper and aluminum cans

  • Garbage and co-mingled recyclables

Flex-D-Vider®

Creates two variable capacity compartments

The DRC II has a total capacity of 28 cubic yards (21 cubic meters). The two variable capacity compartments are separated by a 24" (609,6 mm) high solid welded barrier. This wall prevents liquid leaking from one side to the other. The DRC II accepts and compacts unequal and unpredictable volumes of two separate discardables. This is made possible by Waste Equipment's patented Flex-D-Vider, a pivoting steel wall that adjusts the compartments’ capacity during the loading and packing process. For the easier discharge of the materials in the smaller compartment, a hydraulic cylinder enables the operator to move the Flex-D-Vider to the vertical center of the container, relieving the pressure on the remaining waste or recyclables. When loaded, each compartment can represent as little as 30% or as much as 70% of the unit’s total volume. The DRC II can also be chute-fed to increase customer security and reduce labor costs.

Four individual doors for controlled discharge of compacted materia

Due to the many variable positions in which the Flex-D Vider can be located, four individual doors are used for the discharge of materials.

  • Upper doors are top hinged and have ratchet locks that enable the door to be opened independently of the lower doors

  • Lower doors are hinged in the center of the container. Each door is equipped with Waste Equipment’s standard ratchet latch and open independently for controlled discharge of compacted material

  • For wet-waste applications, an optional door gasket is available with Marathon’s custom designed P-shaped door seal, developed specially for self-contained compactors used for wet waste. Either or both sides may be gasketed

Qwik Clean Tank®

The Qwik Clean Tank® with exclusive Trash Check™ is a standard feature on the DRC II. It funnels any liquid seepage occurring during compaction into an enclosed area underneath the charge box floor. The liquid is automatically discharged at the disposal site, in effect flushing the container and the area behind the ram.

Cycon Cyclic Control System

  • Standard on all DRC Compactors

  • Reliable, solid-state circuitry eliminates all pressure and limit switches

  • CYCON’s no-shock cycle control extends cylinder and hose wear life

  • Automatic “container-full assurance system” means the ram remains against the load at full pressure, resulting in better compaction

  • Smoother running, quieter operation

  • The advanced hydraulic design enables the system to operate at minimum pressure levels until the need for more pressure is automatically sensed

  • More accurate advanced warning or container-full options

  • Dramatically improved cold weather performance
