We believe that every Industrial Trash Compactor should be a dream come true. And a dream is a wish your wallet makes . . . or something like that.

If you are interested in any of KenBay’s impressive and affordable line of compactors, please visit our website. You’ll learn more about who we are and what we do, along with our commitment to a zero-landfill initiative.
Your Dream Industrial Trash Compactor Should be Portable
The word “bulk” is probably about the least dreamy word you could ever imagine. Does anyone like the sound of that? We sure don’t, which is why we think portable is the way to go. With a portable trash compactor, you don’t need to use a ridiculous amount of space. You also don’t need to waste time carrying your garbage back and forth — simply dump it in at the source! A portable trash compactor can help improve safety as well. No risk of your waste becoming a hazard through littering or carelessness.
Your Dream Industrial Trash Compactor Should be Efficient
Next up on our list of “least dreamiest words of all time” is the word jam. Now, I don’t mean the fruity kind of jam you spread on your toast. That jam is plenty dreamy, especially when it’s mixed berry. No, I’m talking about the kind of jam that occurs when your compactor is overloaded. Other compactors can only handle about 300 lbs. But a dream compactor should be able to handle twice that amount. Additionally, it should continuously press the waste into a compact cube shape, making sure its as tight as possible.
Your Dream Industrial Trash Compactor Should Save Labor
Finally, it’s not really a dream if you’re shilling out big bucks. Some other compactors require teams of additional laborers to load and unload the garbage. And you’re paying the cost! Instead of that, use a compactor that is so easy to use that one person could do it. No need to throw your money at your waste again!
KenBay has an impressive line up of dream compactors all for you! Our standout is the RotoPac, the original star, and it’s a standout for a reason! The RotoPac can handle approximately 600 lbs of waste, packing a lot of power for such a small size! If you want to try out the RotoPac or any other compactor for yourself, then visit our website. You can try one before you buy one, and if you like it, then pay to keep it! Wake up from your nightmares, and start living the dream, with KenBay!
In the future, robots and other machines will handle all of our waste Picture “The Jetsons.” Picture the Death Star trash compactor in “Star Wars.” Handling and disposing of the garbage falls entirely on someone else, and we never need to touch it again. Wouldn’t that be lovely? Unfortunately, that future is probably a long ways off. So what can we do in the present?
Well, KenBay is all about proper waste disposal, but that doesn’t mean we think handling waste all the time is good either! When you’re trying to get rid of your trash, it’s better to be quick, fast, and done. So, here are some ways to reduce handling when handling waste.
Do Away With Boxes
Oh boxes, so essential to our everyday life and, paradoxically, so wasteful. Boxes are a bit of a trap, waste wise, because every time you order more, you’re just adding to the waste! There are some cool ideas to reduce boxes, like this nifty little invention. But nothing has really taken off yet to do away with the hundreds of billions of boxes created each year.
True, you can recycle the cardboard, and indeed most people do. But you still need to find a place to put the boxes. Not to mention, most of them are on the small side. If you’re using boxes to hold your temporary waste, you probably need to make a lot of trips! A better solution would be something like Super Sacks, which are larger and can hold up to 4000 lbs of waste. They can also be reused if you’re careful with them, and they are easy to recycle just like cardboard!
Place Compactor at the Source of the Waste
Of course, one of the biggest time wasters when handling waste is having to travel on your factory floor to the compactor itself. Keep in mind, you’re probably carrying an armful of junk too, inhibiting your movement and your vision. This is a workplace hazard! A better answer is to have a smaller compactor, when you can place right at the source of the waste. Finished with that cardboard or edge trim? Great! Just toss it into the compactor and keep moving, no muss or fuss.
Compact and Stack
Finally, when you are handling waste, you want to make the fewest amount of trips possible. For one thing, nobody wants to go back and forth just for garbage. For another thing, as previously mentioned, it’s a workplace hazard. So how to you get more trash to the truck, quicker? Easy! Buy a compactor that presses the garbage into a cube shape. The cubes of trash can be more easily loaded into something like a super sack or a lift.
KenBay does all of this for you! Our RotoPac compactors are small enough to be used on site. And our continuously rotating arm presses the waste together into those nice neat little cubes. We may not be living in the future, but we have the answers you need today!
If you want to try out a RotoPac for yourself, then you can make a request and we’ll send one to you! And if you decide you like it, simply pay the money to keep what we’ve sent!
