SmartPacks In New Terminal B At LaGuardia Airport!
Harmony Enterprises is pleased to announce that it completed installation and training on six SmartPack Automatic Trash Compactors in the new B Terminal of LaGuardia Airport in New York. These amazing machines handle 11x more waste than normal garbage containers while saving on hauling costs, labor, and trash can liners.
The SmartPack installation coincides with the recent opening of the state-of-the-art terminal, making LaGuardia a unified 21st century facility. Passengers moving from the brand new arrivals and departures hall to their gates do so on a revolutionary skybridge over an active taxiway, leading to an island concourse. To enable customers to shop and dine while waiting for their flights, concessions are centralized post-security in a main commercial district of the new Arrivals and Departures Hall with some of the best retail, food and beverage amenities.
Harmony’s SmartPack no-touch automatic compactors are placed strategically throughout the food court and walkways to compact waste and collect recyclables at their source, while improving the traveler experience. Each compactor has a photo eye that senses the approaching patron, opening the large no-touch waste door and compacting the waste right after it is inserted. This keeps cans from overflowing and the entire area looking clean and sanitary!
SmartPacks can come in any color to match your airport or restaurant décor. They can also be vinyl wrapped with virtually any marketing collateral or graphics!
Do More With Insite
SmartPacks are equipped with Insite Technology, a wireless text/email system, which alerts staff when a compactor is partially full, full, or requires attention. This allows staff to manage trash on a “just-in-time” basis, freeing them up for other, more important duties”, according to National Sales Manager, Nick Roberts. Insite also provides customizable scheduled or on demand reporting of % of fullness of each compactor, maximizing compactor usage and staff FTE’s. With labor shortages affecting virtually every aspect of airports, SmartPack provides labor efficiencies never before seen in waste management!
