Portable Waste Compactors

Portable waste compactors are machines which compress rubbish and waste materials to make their disposal more cost-efficient and environmentally-friendly. 

By using weights and pressure systems to squeeze and compact waste materials these industrial quality machines bring several benefits to working commercial environments.

Essentially, using a portable waste compactor means that unwanted materials take up less physical space and therefore are easier to store until disposal is arranged. This reduces the space taken up in landfill sites while the portable nature of the devices offers businesses more flexibility in their use.

Portable waste compactors are available in various different forms, and key options include:

  • Loading door configurations
  • Choose of cylinder units
  • Different loading capacities
  • Efficient liquid waste management

Key features of a portable waste compactor

All Thetford International compacting equipment complies with the Health & Safety at Work Act (1974) and portable versions offer a wide range of flexibility when it comes to placement and usage.

Industries where waste is found to contain excessive liquid content can benefit from a portable waste compactor fitted with rubber 'D' seals to the discharge doors, which effectively eliminate leakage. 

All waste compactors are capable of compressing a large volume of waste materials into a relatively small space ready for stage and disposal. 

Thetford waste compactors are easy to load and easy to use and this means that businesses are able to take care of their waste with minimal effort and without expensive outsourcing. Units are constructed from high quality steel to ensure durability and longevity.

Most units are low-noise options to avoid causing disruption to workers but there is a full range of variance in the power or force used by different waste compactors meaning that there is a suitable version for all types of applications.

Why businesses need waste compactors

As well as reducing the size of waste materials and the storage space they require, using a waste compactor can also benefit businesses by reducing costs associated with regular waste transportation and collections.

Additionally, businesses gain a smoother and more efficient waste disposal service which also adds a positive aspect to their green credentials by utilising an eco-friendly process that cuts down on space taken up in landfill sites. 

Environmental benefits of waste compactors

Whilst the main advantages of using waste compactors lie in adopting green business practices and easing pressure on landfill sites, fewer waste collections also mean lower emissions from heavy duty road vehicles and a subsequent reduction in the consumption of fuel.

Waste compactors are energy efficient to use and therefore ensure that each stage of the operation is as eco-friendly as possible with portable machines adding flexibility into the mix.
