Since installation, the unit has proven reliable, safe & user-friendly and is consistently achieving high bin payloads across both timber and cardboard waste streams. Our experience with the team at Waste Initiatives and their product has been completely satisfactory, and we have no hesitation in recommending them – great work guys.
Introduced to Volkswagen by Remondis Australia, Waste Initiatives were engaged to assess a deteriorating compaction system at VW’s parts distribution centre at Chullora.
During Waste Initiatives’ site assessment, it became apparent that the range of cardboard box sizes/thicknesses and the timber crates/ pallets being disposed of were proving unmanageable and increasingly costly with the existing compactor.
Space being at a premium, the resulting waste overflow due to the inferior compaction performance of their old machine left the site with an ongoing logistics and material handling challenge which required excessive labour and increased collection services – inflating the site operating costs.
The ideal solution for Volkswagen was quickly indentified as the mutli-use RPV7700 Roll Packer fitted out with a special-purpose roller to ensure efficient compaction across both timber and cardboard waste streams, without cross- contaminating the bins.
An additional RP7700 Roll Packer was specified for VW’s sister DC in Melbourne.
Upon installation, the site immediately proved the benefit of the original Roll Packer – seeing a significant increase in bin payloads, effective crushing of the most challenging of their waste profiles (including over size crates & boxes), and a safe & reliable operating process delivering substantial savings on their operating costs and freeing up their labour resources.
