The benefits of waste compaction
There are many benefits to introducing an industrial trash compactor as part of your business’s waste management. Waste compaction is the process of compacting waste material and reducing it into smaller manageable sizes for more efficient waste disposal. Generally speaking, the higher the compaction rate, the more efficient landfill can receive and store, and minimise dumpster pickup frequency.
An industrial trash compactor can be a lucrative investment for businesses. Trash compactors are a reliable and effective method of targeting high waste costs and reducing the number of bin empties required for high-volume waste generators. Waste compactors, therefore, are able to free up valuable space and stabilise the volume of landfills, minimise the human resources required to manage waste and divert recyclables from dumpster sites- all of which contributes to a more sustainable environment. When businesses make the decision to move forward with a trash compactor, they not only see savings of the space used within their waste collectors, but minimise unnecessary labour costs, improve the hygiene of their premises and gradually lower their carbon footprint with lesser pickup rates.

The mechanics of Waste Compactors
While our extensive range of rental trash compactors vary in size and waste output, the internal mechanisms are more or less the same.
The majority of industrial waste compactors machines will feature a large internal metal ram that is strong enough to compress loose trash downwards. Operators will load a compactor with any applicable waste material, start the repetitive ‘ram process’. Consequently, the metal ram will then crush all the waste into smaller, highly compact pieces so they can later be transported and destroyed more efficiently. Waste compactors vary in size and ability with certain machines will handle different materials, and require different loading techniques. At Waste Initiatives, we offer clients various stationary and transportable rental compactors for their business that can be tailored specifically to their onsite requirements, and handling and loading expectations.

Frequently Asked Questions
What is a compactor?
Industrial compactors are machines that compact materials to reduce the volume of waste. But this term is also used to describe any type of machinery with this function, from trash compactors to large and heavy machinery vehicles used to compact the soil in a construction site.
Here at Waste Initiatives, when we’re talking about compactors, we’re talking about machines that help deal with waste.
How does a compactor work?
The main function of this type of waste management machine is driven by a large ‘ram’ that crushes rubbish or recycling materials. This motion is often powered through electricity or a liquid pump system called hydraulics (which would make this a hydraulic ram). To operate, fill through the aperture and then switch on to crush.
Only authorised staff who have received training should use a waste compactor, to reduce the risk of danger or injury. Never place your limbs within the machine to dislodge materials in the compacting machine.
What type of compactor is suitable for my business?
For dry waste: select Stationary or Integrated Compactors
These machines are suitable for dry waste, where there is either no or only a marginal amount of liquid involved. This is as they only have a limited capacity to hold any liquid waste. They can also come in automatic models, for easy operation that requires less employee training.
For site contamination concerns & liquid waste: select Integrated Compactors
Integrated compactors are suited for general waste where liquid and spills are unavoidable or wet waste, with facilities to store and process liquids. This makes them ideal for eliminating contamination on the site.
For transfer stations: select Transfer Compactors
Designed to deal with bulky materials and high volume period waste expected in transfer stations.
For skip bins: select Roll Packers
Roll packers use a rolling function to crush bulky waste materials such as timber pallets and crates within an open skip waste bin.
For retail stores: select Roto Compactors or Vertical Balers
Roto compacting machines make it easier to compact cardboard boxes frequently used for store deliveries, with an opening at shoulder height. Staff can also continue to fill while dry waste is crushed as the compacting arm rotates.
For expanding your bin capacity: select Waste presses
These compacting machines speedily press waste within a garbage bin or over a garbage bag. A great solution for those who want to make the most of their bins/waste removal capacity.

What does a compactor do?
