Why Commercial Compactors Are Important For Waste Producing Industry?

Large scale businesses like manufacturers, warehouses, retailers, distribution centers, supermarkets, hospitals, and apartment complexes produce a lot of waste during commercial activities. The practical solution for such types is waste compactors. Commercial trash compactors are used to compress the wet or dry trash and convert it into small tightly compact pieces of waste. These compactors help the companies in reducing the volume of the produced waste. Most of the commercial trash compactors are used to compact recyclable waste like plastic, cardboard, paper, shrink film, wood, etc.

Here are a few factors that highlight why commercial compactors are important for the waste producing industry:

Save time and money

Commercial trash compactors reduce waste management costs in the industry. These compactors also save time and the other expenditures of the company. Trash compactors reduce the waste by 3:1. For instance, if an open-top container is picking your waste once a week and you are paying approximately $180-$200 per week, a commercial compactor will cost you approximately $240-$300 each month. With the help of commercial compactors, you will haul waste much less than with an open-top container. Thus, it will lead to saving you money.

Eco-friendly choices bring more opportunities

Commercial waste compactors also enhance the company’s green efforts. When you start managing your company waste, it helps you to stand out from other companies. Staff and your business partners notice your efforts and appreciate them. Effective waste management also helps you to get ISO certification. This will ultimately bring more business to you since most companies like to work with ISO certified companies.

Volume reduction

You can save more space at the workplace with commercial waste compactors. These compactors turn waste into small and easily manageable cubes or bales. It is much easier to transport these cubes or bales. Besides reducing space in the industry, it also reduces human labor which again cuts costs of the waste management system for a business.

Lower risks

The decrease in hauling activity leads to a decrease in the loading of waste collection trucks at the site. The commercial trash compactors reduce the accidental risks associated with solid waste management at the workplace. The reduction in waste reduces the risk of fire at the workplace site as well.

Another benefit of using commercial compactors is that they protect the environment of the site and keep it more sanitized. Compaction is one of the sanitary means of disposing of waste. These commercial waste compactors also help in reducing the odor and rodent infestation at the site.


Commercial compactors also secure and protect the confidential information of the brand or merchandise. This protects your unique product and secures your business presence in the market.

This is the most important aspect of compactors. There is a trash compactor suitable for your unique situation.
