Things To Know About A Waste Compactor Service.

When considering disposing of waste using a compactor service, you need to think about where you will place the compactor. However, when considering the amount of space you need for the compactor, remember to take into account the access needed by a lorry. A typical lorry is roughly 9ft wide, 14ft in height and 32ft long and has a gross weight of around 32 tonnes.

Also please remember that you cannot locate a compactor directly below trees and you are legally responsible for all the contents of the compactor you have hired. As such, you need to ensure that the waste disposed of using the compactor is suitable for general waste disposal and is not overloaded.

Portable Rubbish Compactors

Customers who are searching for a low maintenance waste disposal service, could choose a portable compactor with a choice of integral container sizes from 14 and 28 metres cubed. Additionally, as these containers are not bolted to the ground, they can be located on a variety of different ground services such as tarmac, rough ground, or even block paving. The only requirement is that there must be sufficient access for our skip and hook lift lorries to collect and deliver the compactor.

Our compactors are simple and easy to use, the waste is hand balled, bin lifted, or fork-lifted into a hopper where the waste material is compacted and indicators show 3/4 full or full. This enables the operator to notify us to schedule collection by one of our trained drivers.

In addition to being easy to use, the efficiency of a compactor will both enhance its credentials environmentally and will also save money with regards to transport. Our transportation is FORS (Freight Operator Recognition Scheme) compliant and we are a licensed waste carrier that will treat your waste with 0% waste to landfill. The waste is processed as a resource at a dedicated MRF (Material Recovery Facility) or going to EfW (Energy from Waste) or AD (Anaerobic Digestion) plants depending on waste type.

Also, our portable compactors are fitted with rear seals which eliminate liquid seepage from municipal general waste. This means that a portable compactor is equally good for dry mixed waste and plastics.

Businesses which could benefit from a portable waste compactor include commercial industries such as hotels, entertainment complexes, shopping centres, leisure parks, hospitals, and facility management of offices.

Static Waste Compactors

Unlike a portable compactor, the back end of the static compactor is bolted to the ground in a fixed position, where by a 40 yard roll on roll off is enclosed in the unit. After training your staff to load the waste into the machine (either by hand balling, bin tippers, or skip tipper), simply press the GO button and the process of compaction begins.

Once the compactor is full, a member of RTS Waste Management Staff will come to collect and perform a tip and return of the empty roll on roll off. This collection service can be provided on an on-demand or a scheduled basis.

This style of waste compactor is often used by commercial contractors, however if you need assistance in your choice, our friendly team of waste management professionals will be happy to provide advice.
