Benefits of Using a Waste Compactor

Overflowing bins can be a problem for any business that uses them to deal with all their waste streams and if they are producing more waste than the bins can handle.

Using a waste compactor heavily reduces the volume of loose waste and waste bags, which prevents overflowing and reduces the need for costly collections.

A waste compactor can be made in many forms. Some are predominantly built for compacting waste cardboard and plastic while others are designed to compact general waste down to a fraction of its normal size.

Cardboard and plastic waste compactors press down the material so it can then be tied into bales and stacked neatly to await collection from a recycler. A waste compactor replaces cardboard and plastic bins in this instance.

Waste compactors which compact general waste, press the bin bags down and can offer effective volume reduction ratio of up to 10:1. A waste compactor will help to remove general waste bins off the site and to reduce collections, as the compactor increases the amount of time it takes for a bin to fill up.

Overflowing bins are not only costly but they also create a negative impression on customers, visitors and even the staff themselves. Nobody wants to see an area jammed full of unsightly bin bags. A waste compactor will allow this eyesore to stop happening as it can remove voluminous cardboard and plastic from the bins altogether and crush down bin bags to avoid overflowing.

Waste compactors also help to reduce the amount of waste sent to landfill, which of course is great for the environment and it helps improve to improve a company’s green credentials.

Compacting waste is much more beneficial to businesses and the environment than using bins. A waste compactor is not unsightly, it takes less time to use and it saves money. Compactors are a fantastic alternative and solution to common bins.
