Challenge: An outside dumpster took up space used for a shipping bay so the door was left open all year round for removing trash. Most trash came from packaging materials from copier machines from overseas. Much was Styrofoam packaging that had to be removed before the copiers were sent to retail stores.
Solution: Client Warehouse & Facilities Manager brought in a RotoPac, the original rotary arm compactor
Result: Freed up one shipping bay (allowing it to be available for deliveries), reduced labor costs and even cut cooling and heating costs. NOTE: Closer waste disposal allowed them to remove the dumpster from the shipping bay and return it to its intended use. Fork lifts deliver bags of compacted waste to the now-remote dumpster and the overhead door opens only when there is shipping activity in that bay.
