How Much Can a Compactor Hold?

Compactors are serviced by a front loader truck and typically have 6 or 8 cubic-yard containers.


- (Palletized garbage bin with plastic bags), CC-2900 - (Use of the front or rear loading container). We get asked a lot how much weight a particular compactor can support. To date, there are no real official figures because the weight of the material varies a lot, as do the compacting ratios of the equipment.

This dilemma is also compounded by the fact that waste with a high liquid content has a very low compaction ratio, since liquid cannot be compressed, while material with a large amount of air is compacted in an incredibly small space. Theoretically, each of these compactors can replace 4 to 5 of the standard traditional containers, since they achieve a compaction ratio of 4 to 1 or 5 to 1, depending on the profile of the waste. Global Trash Solutions offers all the industrial compactors needed for businesses, retail stores or manufacturing facilities of any size. These compactors are designed to be fed through the wall with a feed door through the duct that feeds a compactor outside. These compactors can also be placed next to a building and run through a wall through a duct so that employees don't have to walk outside to deposit garbage.

Vertical outdoor compactors are especially useful when the carrier's access is difficult but an outdoor compactor is needed. Therefore, the three main considerations when choosing a compactor are the cost of transporting garbage to the landfill, the cost of labor to handle it, and the way in which landfill charges are calculated. It is widely accepted that compacting waste with a commercial or industrial compactor has several benefits for your company compared to disposing of garbage in a garbage container with an open top. Commercial trash compactors come in many different styles and sizes to meet specific customer needs. Choosing the right type of outdoor compactor depends on many factors, such as the volume of garbage, accessibility for carriers, the way it will be fed, general safety and cleanliness considerations, and many other circumstances.

These compactors can be used indoors or outdoors and the main advantages and features can be found in the Indoor Compactor Reference Guide. Indoor compactors are typically about the size of a refrigerator, and outdoor vertical compactors can fit in most standard trash bins. Compacting waste with an industrial compactor has several advantages over traditional open-top containers. Not only does it reduce labor costs associated with handling waste, but it also reduces transportation costs by reducing trips to landfills. Additionally, it reduces landfill charges by increasing compaction ratios and reducing overall waste volume.

Compactors also help maintain cleanliness and safety standards by reducing odors and preventing pests from entering your facility. When selecting an industrial compactor for your business or facility, it is important to consider all factors such as cost, size, type of waste being handled, accessibility for carriers, safety and cleanliness considerations, and other factors.
