Buying a trash compactor for your business is an important investment. Most companies will research compactors for sale before they sign on the dotted line.
Realizing an acceptable return on your investment (ROI) depends on selecting the best trash compactor for your facility’s specific needs. With the right compactor for the job, your company can see an ROI in one to two years.
There are two primary factors that affect trash compactor cost savings. They include:
- The process of collecting compacted waste and placing it into the compactor.
- The cost associated with hauling waste to landfill, waste-to-energy (WtE), or recycling locations.
When improperly disposed of, industrial and other waste materials can have a huge impact on the environment, and they can be hazardous to anyone who may come into contact with them.
So using proper waste management protocols is not only responsible but is essential in reducing these types of negative impacts.
And for many businesses, that means using a commercial trash compactor.
What Is the Zero Landfill Initiative?
The Zero Landfill Initiative is a comprehensive attempt by local and international nonprofit organizations to turn landfill waste materials into sustainable energy. This initiative is designed to help facilitate businesses, communities, and international enterprises to reclaim landfill space and redirect these areas toward creating more sustainable work and living spaces. Resource waste material recovery is modeled on the worldwide effort to provide the highest standard of living for countries and communities grappling with their volume of waste production and landfill concerns.

Industrial Rotary Arm Compactor Compacts Cardboard
An animal health care company, one of the world’s largest producers of medicine and vaccinations for pets and livestock, recently began using a KenBay RotoPac industrial trash compactor for compacting their packaging waste.
As shipments come into the facility, boxes are emptied before the incoming items are moved to the production area. Packaging is not permitted in the production area where animal medicines are made.
It’s a never ending battle: your company produces waste, your workers haul it to dumpsters or recycling bins – or spend work hours cutting up cardboard boxes – and the cycle begins again, all in an effort to keep trash from taking up space.
This scenario plays out every day at businesses around the country…except for the ones who understand all of the benefits and have made the decision to invest in an industrial waste compactor.
In this blog post, we’ll look at a few reasons why an industrial trash compactor can help your company: save space; improve safety and security; save hauling, transportation and fuel costs and, generally become a greener, cleaner company. (more…)
If you run a business, there are two goals likely never far from your thoughts: safety and sustainability.
A commercial trash compactor is your best bet for ensuring both those goals – among others – provided you find the compactor that is right for your company.
You’ll improve your company’s sustainability – and reduce the amount of waste you’d otherwise be sending to landfills – while also making sure your employees are safer by limiting hazards in the workplace. Read on to learn the three features you should look for when choosing a trash compactor.
Creative Labels, located in Gilroy, CA, has been in the business of producing high-quality labels for more than 35 years. The labels they produce are primarily for prime foods and beverages.
Label making generates a great deal of trim waste consisting of paper and plastic. When the label producing machines operate for what are generally 12 hour-days during busy seasons, considerable waste is produced. Prior to 2004, Creative Labels had to wind up the waste from their machines, stop the presses to remove the rolls and try to stomp down the waste to compact it somewhat before putting it into containers. That made it difficult, costly, and time-consuming to dispose of this waste. However, in 2004 when the KenBay RotoPac compactor became available in the US, Creative Labels installed one because it offered significant uptime on the printing presses, which saved time, labor and money.
Designed more than 20 years ago in Europe, the RotoPac was created to offer maximum waste compaction with a minimal footprint. This development was crucial to manufacturing facilities in Europe that were starved for space.
The RotoPac can provide 6-to-1 compaction in a 51-inch by 61-inch space thanks to its unique design: a distributor providing hydraulic power to a drum that is continuously rotated and swept.
The result is a commercial trash compactor designed for both simplicity and longevity, one that applies continuous waste compaction through higher-than-expected torque. It’s what we like to think of as the workhorse of the industrial waste compaction field. (more…)
