One of the main advantages to a compactor is the reduced cost. If you need to empty your dumpster frequently, the costs of returning, emptying, and replacing your dumpster add up. Although the cost of a compacting dumpster is more up front, it’s lower in the long run. Repeated trips to the landfill come at a high expense and inconvenience.
The compactor is able to significantly minimize the size and volume of your garbage. In fact, you might be shocked to see how much more garbage you can store when you use a compactor. An unexpected cost reduction could also come in the form of less manpower and the lack of garbage bags. Whatever industry you might be in, there’s savings in using a compacting dumpster.
Waste management is often highly inefficient. For one, you need to check trash bins and dumpsters for fullness. If you don’t currently have a roll off dumpster, the task can take time out of every day. If the garbage is full, an employee needs to dump it and replace the trash bag.
If your employees are able to spend less time on trash duty, they can spend more time on things that matter. A compacting dumpster maximizes efficiency, which helps your profit margins.
Although this benefit is apparent, it’s worth mentioning. Compacted dumpsters compress waste together into small bales. Generally, compacted trash uses 1/10 the space of regular trash. When you reduce the size of your trash, you also reduce the storage space you need.
Instead of requiring a large, space-consuming dumpster, you could use a smaller compacting one. If you’re short on space, this might be the best way to deal with your garbage.
In the oilfield, the aesthetics of a dumpster might not matter. But commercial businesses need to consider the aesthetics of their garbage cans or dumpsters. If you use a traditional waste management system, you might have multiple ones scattered about. Those bins can overflow and look messy. Even though each bin is small, it could attract attention and take away from your decor.
Meanwhile, a trash compactor takes away the possibility of overflow. It can also look better than having multiple small dumpsters or bins.
