Compactor Machine Means Faster Site Cleaning
A compactor unit also helps to improve the speed in which the site can be cleaned. When cleaning a site, large items are thrown into the dumpster taking up space fast. Before you know it, the dumpster is full and you are waiting for a new dumpster to be delivered. A lot of time is often wasted waiting for a new dumpster to be delivered. With a compactor you can get more use out of a single unit as you can compress the waste. This not only saves money but time as well. When you need a site cleaned up fast, a compactor can help improve clean up time.
Compactor Reduces Odor & Pest Infestations
An open end garbage bin or dumpster leaves everything open. Open dumpsters can allow pests and odors to freely move about. Depending on the commercial or residential needs, food waste can be very attractive to pests and also cause odors. A compactor is a secure and enclosed unit that makes it impossible for pests to get into the waste unit and it also helps reduce the odor. If you have food or other unpleasant wastes you wish to get rid of, then a compactor is the better choice.
Minimize Fire Hazards with a Compactor
If you are throwing away combustive material you will want an air tight container to ensure the items in the dumpster don’t become a fire hazard. Because most compactors are enclosed there not enough air to allow a fire to develop. Additionally, because it is enclosed, it is hard for a fire to even get started.
