Have you ever been in the back room of a food service provider’s facility? Many of these areas are confined, messy, and unsanitary. The fast and chaotic pace of daily production does not always lend itself to efficient waste removal of open containers. Garbage overflows, leaks, and creates an environment that attracts odor, insects, and rodents. It adds to the list of potential fire hazards for the property. Many business owners don’t realize that indoor waste compaction is an option.
Employee time must be used in a way that services the customer’s needs, is safe, and provides the quickest return on the owner’s investment. Waste management often takes a backseat to these more immediate concerns.
Indoor Waste Compaction vs. Outdoor Waste Compaction
Restaurants, medical facilities, hospitality firms, schools, hotels, housing complexes, theme parks, cruise ships, and even military bases are beginning to understand the benefits of indoor waste compaction.
Larger outdoor compactors pose an upfront capital expense, and there is not always ample space to site a large compactor or have it hauled away efficiently. As a result, business owners are turning to the less expensive, yet highly effective alternative of indoor waste compaction.
Indoor Compactors – Compacting Waste at the Source
Managers can’t afford to have employees waste valuable time hauling partially filled, leaking bags to an outside dumpster, nor do they want to have their customers see this unsanitary waste being dragged outside of their property during business hours. They also don’t need to have inadequate amounts of waste hauled away on a regular schedule by a hauler.
Employee safety and pilferage is often at risk during the hauling of trash. By compacting waste at its source, you can eliminate all of these problems and save up to 70% in associated waste costs. Ortonville Area Health Services in Minnesota utilized the advantages of indoor compaction with the 450SS Indoor Packer in 2015 and has saved an average of $900 per month on waste hauling alone (read story). For this business, the 450SS provided an impressive 10 month ROI! With indoor compaction, the cost of accessories such as trash liners are also reduced as the compacted trash takes up 1/25th the space of normal waste.

All too often, indoor compactors are too small to handle adequate amounts of waste, leak, and are themselves, unsanitary. They, too, can be cumbersome and take up too much operational space to provide any benefit to your business. The solution for all of these problems is an indoor compactor that has a large enough volume, compaction force, and is constructed of a sanitary material like high-quality stainless steel.
