Commercial Waste Compactors to Rent or Purchase

Waste Compactors are designed to reduce your waste material volume by compressing the waste inside the bin to make more room for adding additional waste into the bin. By squashing down the bin contents you'll fit more material into it, saving your business space & money while also decreasing the environmental impact of waste collections. These Compactors can also be called in-bin compactors or bin presses, and are suitable for a variety of bin sizes and for both recyclable & non-recyclable waste.

Compacting waste is beneficial to all types of businesses. This is due to Waste Management Companies charging variable prices for bin emptying, depending on the contents and the capacity of the bin. Businesses without a waste compactor often find themselves paying to have commercial bins emptied, which aren’t even full which is essentially paying for disposing of fresh air.
