Northridge Residence is an adult nursing home in Ortonville, Minnesota and part of Ortonville Area Health Services. They have a 450SS Stainless Steel Compactor in their garage where all the departments in the nursing home dispose of their trash. The Indoor Trash Compactor has saved them $900 a month on their waste hauling bill, each month for the past two and a half years!
Indoor Trash Compactor Saves $900 a Month in Waste Hauling
Tim Swenson, Maintenance Manager at Northridge Residence, explains, “The compactor by Harmony Enterprises holds more trash and compacts more than the other compactors we have used. Before having the Harmony compactor, Waste Management would pick up trash at our facility two times a week. Now they only have to pick up one time a week, saving us about $900 a month.”
All Departments Benefit from Easy Waste Disposal
Housekeeping, Dietary, and all the departments at Northridge Residence, bring their trash to the Indoor Compactor, using a small bin to haul the bags of trash. After the waste is compacted, the Maintenance staff uses a special cart that lifts the heavy compacted trash bags into the dumpster (see photos).
Benefits of the 450SS Stainless Steel Compactor:
- Fewer trash pickups by hauler will reduce your expenses
- Less trips outside will save your staff’s time and make for easier housekeeping
- Reducing overflowing trash in dumpster will improve the appearance of your property
- Small footprint makes it easy to fit equipment small spaces in kitchen, garages, etc.
Harmony Enterprises Inc.’s Stainless Steel Compactors also work well in food preparation kitchens, school cafeterias, housekeeping areas, quick serve restaurants, hotels and more.
