When you’re purchasing equipment for your business, a commercial trash compactor may not be first on the list of necessities — it may not be on the list at all. But there are plenty of reasons why it should be. Here are a few of them:
1. Save money in waste collection costs or trips to the dump.
If you’re using a dumpster, you have to pay for someone to come and empty it regularly, or take the trash to a landfill yourself. Either way, you can cut costs with an industrial trash compactor. A compactor compresses your waste so that it takes up much less space, meaning it has to be collected less often. That translates into savings.
2. Eliminate problems with trash cans or dumpsters.
Having multiple garbage bins in your parking lot or behind your building can look cluttered and untidy even when everything is clean. When you add in people using your bins for their own trash, pilfering, animals breaking in and wind blowing garbage around when the lids are left open, the area around them can actually be untidy no matter how often employees clean up.
A trash compactor can solve most of those problems. They can be used for all kinds of waste, from food to household waste to newsprint and cardboard.
With sealed bins and an enclosed container and compactor, people won’t be able to turn your business into the neighborhood dump. Animals won’t be able to get in, either. Compacted garbage is stored in a closed container, so it won’t blow around your property. And a single trash compactor looks much more neat than several dumpsters or a dozen garbage cans.
3. Boost your reputation as a ‘green’ company.
A lot of businesses are looking for ways to go green these days. Customers place a lot of value on it. A trash compactor can help reduce the amount of waste going into a landfill, or it can be part of a company’s recycling process along with balers and other equipment.
