Make Your Waste More Manageable With a Compactor Rental

Compactors help businesses like yours get the most from the waste disposal processes. Each compactor has its own uses and benefits, so it’s vital to choose correctly if you want your trash compacting to be as effective as possible. Here are some reasons why you should choose Priority Waste for your commercial trash compactor rental needs.

With our maintenance-free plate compactors, bale compactors and tower compactor rentals, you’ll never have to worry about the physical toll of loading, carrying and emptying heavy containers.

How Do Compactors Work?

The compactor uses a vibratory plate to gently rock trash in the tank. This movement breaks down the trash and reduces the volume by as much as 90%. A hydraulic lift raises and lowers the vibrating plate, allowing it to move over all of the material inside the tank. The operator can control how often the plate moves based on what is compacted. The machine has an electronic gauge that tells you when to empty it and how full it is at any given time.

What Do You Use a Compactor For?

Compactors allow more waste to be transported less frequently by reducing the volume and overall footprint of waste. This offers your company significant financial savings and an instant return on your investment.

Compactors also contribute to lower carbon emissions and a healthier environment by making truck hauls less frequent. Commercial compactors offer a better, safer space for rubbish collection — reducing odor, theft, fire, safety incidents, and security risks in and around the trash corral. The load on the already overworked waste stream is reduced since the waste takes up less room in landfills.

What Kinds of Compactors Are There?

Commercial trash compactors come in many shapes and sizes, but they all serve the same function. There are balers, used in a facility’s basement or outbuilding to collect solid waste such as cardboard, paper and recyclable material. A bulk loader will load the containers with their contents. These containers can be big enough to carry commercial and residential waste, such as heavy-duty cardboard boxes, paper bags and yard debris. Restaurants, shopping centers, museums, airports, hospitals and other establishments where patrons directly dispose of trash indoors frequently employ indoor compactors. Although stationary models are typically horizontal in orientation, vertical compactors are for applications where space is at a premium. Self-contained compactors are found behind or near the dock areas of most facilities and are for dry or wet waste.

Things That Should Not Go Into a Commercial Trash Compactor

Toxic waste or flammable items should not go into a commercial compactor. Glass items or metal should also not be put in commercial compactors because they will damage the plates inside. Granular soils such as sand, sugar or rice should not be used. This material causes the machine to get jammed up and break.
