  • Is it best to buy, lease or rent?
  • Money to be saved by reducing number of hauls, solving space problems, increasing productivity of employees, reducing fuel costs and decreasing wear and tear on property.
  • How big is your waste? If the size of your waste is larger than the opening of your compactor, time and manpower will be needed to break it down to fit.
  • Are you recycling? Consider the volume of recyclable materials in your waste stream. You may find it is more practical to separate them from the trash you pay to have hauled. This will reduce your disposal costs while providing a revenue from the sale of compacted recyclable material.
  • Location – To choose a make, model or size compactor, you must first consider where you will place it. Convenient access to the hopper by employees is important. You may find it helpful to access it through an exterior wall or additional doors. Locating it near a central point to the waste being generated will improve productivity and add value to your building. The last consideration for compactor placement is the space needed for a collection truck to maneuver while emptying your equipment. Proper removal requires 360 degrees of clearance both vertically and horizontally.
  • Electrical needs – Many companies find that 3 phase power is the most cost effective way to operate their compactor. Single phase power can be adapted when other considerations require it.
