Have you ever been to a fast food restaurant, mall, or airport where the waste can was overflowing with garbage? Or maybe, while you are finishing your lunch, the restaurant staff empties the garbage can, only to have cups, sandwich wrappers, and ketchup end up on the floor in front of you? It is far from appetizing for the customer.
Quick-service restaurants today (like this story of McDonald’s) are realizing that how the trash is maintained in their establishment is an important part of the customer experience. In a self-service environment, when customers are expected to put their own waste in the garbage, business owners need to ensure that it is comfortable, clean, and easy. How the customer feels, as they empty their garbage and leave the establishment will affect their future business.
One way that restaurant owners can reduce the sight of overflowing waste in their restaurant or cafeteria, and the constant emptying of typical garbage receptacles by employees, is by installing an Automatic Compacting Receptacle in their dining areas. By putting a waste compactor directly at the source where the garbage is disposed of, it creates a tremendous savings in labor to empty the receptacle, hauling expense, and even liner cost. The SmartPack Automatic Trash Compactor by Harmony Enterprises will provide you solutions to your waste issues, with quick payback!
SmartPack Trash Compactor holds 8-12 bags of trash, making your waste collection 10X more effective!
- Reduces labor cost since staff will have to empty the trash 10X less

In addition to the financial payback the business owner received through improving their waste efficiencies, it also affects the perception of your business through your customers’ eyes. With a similar footprint and appearance to typical waste receptacles, customers will be pleasantly surprised when they experience your business’ proactive efforts towards keeping a cleaner environment both in their restaurant and beyond.
