Transfer Station Compactors

Transfer station compactors are industrial machines which compress rubbish to make it more cost-efficient and environmentally-friendly to be disposed of.

The process uses weights and pressure to literally squeeze waste material together into smaller compacted shapes which then take up less physical space. The result is waste products that are far easier to manage, store and transport.

Use of the right type of compactor can save businesses money in waste management costs and also positively affect their environmental impact.

 Transfer station compactors are available in various different forms, and key options include:

  • High packed density and full payloads
  • Stationed on or above ground level
  • Extra large charge box
  • Variety of loading hoppers
  • Left, right handed or remote operation

Key features of a transfer station compactor


Transfer station compactors are capable of compressing a large volume of waste materials into a relatively small space. Key features of the products include the structural stability of the machinery itself as well as high safety requirements and easy operation. 

A variety of loading hoppers can be supplied including chute, conveyor, and fork truck loading. Controls can be left or right handed as well as remotely controlled depending on the individual circumstances of operations.

Transfer station compactors are heavy duty, high performance machines designed for medium to high tonnage transfer stations with throughput of upwards of 250 tonnes per day. High capacity volumes are allowed because the machines can be constantly fed whilst packing.  

All Thetford International equipment complies with the Health & Safety at Work Act (1974), meaning that employee operation is simple and straightforward. 

Why businesses need transfer station compactors


Not only does reducing the actual size of waste materials minimise the amount of storage space they take up prior to going for disposal, but a waste compactor can also benefit businesses by reducing the cost of waste transportation by reducing the frequency of collections.

Furthermore, this cuts back on expensive outlays and it adds to the green credentials of a business.

Environmental benefits of transfer station compactors


Smaller waste equates to less space taken up in landfill sites and this has far-reaching benefits for all involved. More than this, the use of a transfer station compactor means that fewer waste collections lead to less of the harmful emissions associated with heavy duty road vehicles because of a reduction in their consumption of fuel.

Energy-efficient waste compactors ensure that each stage of the operation is as eco-friendly as possible.
