Commercial Trash Compactors - Quick Overview
Compactors are used to reduce the size of trash through compaction. They compress trash, garbage or refuse into small cubes for easy and less frequent disposal. A trash compactor is often used by businesses to reduce the volume of waste material. Many businesses, such as restaurants, fast food, schools, hospitals and hotels use compactors to reduce the volume of non-recyclable waste as well as reduce labor involved to process the waste. There are many other benefits of commercial trash compactors.
- Using a trash compactor may allow you to have fewer or smaller dumpsters.
- Using a trash compactor may allow you to have fewer hauler pickups of your dumpsters.
- Reduced hauler collection costs.
- Reduced hauler pickups reduce parking lot wear and tear.
- Reduces labor for waste processing substantially by eliminating trips to the dumpster.
- Having a trash compactor can help you to handle waste during peak business operation hours.
- Keeps odor containerized in the chamber.
- Trash compactors reduce the volume, smell, and rodent problems of waste.

Commercial compactors are typically powered by hydraulics with welded steel construction for durability under pressure. Oftentimes the indoor models and marine models are constructed with stainless steel for additional durability. These industrial compactors are very reliable, with heavy-duty construction and very few moving parts. They are easy to maintain and usually last for many years with proper care.
On average, the commercial compactors can achieve up to a 20 to 1 compaction ratio. Compaction ratios fluctuate depending on what type of material is being compacted. Dense material, such as telephone books, stacked newspapers and magazines will not compact well and will have a low compaction ratio. Shredded paper, cardboard, cups and items such as these which contain a good percentage of air will have a high compaction ratio.
Trash can be wet or dry when put into an industrial compactor. Trash compactors handle wet waste well when combined with dry, absorbent waste in the chamber. Some examples of wet refuse are food waste, dairy waste, produce and meat waste. When combined with dry waste such as paper, napkins, cups, corrugated boxes, etc., the wet waste is absorbed by the dry waste usually resulting in few leaks upon removal of the compacted cube.
The ultimate function of trash compactors is material volume reduction. And volume reduction equals substantial labor and waste hauling savings. Most businesses, especially those spending at least $750 or more per month in waste hauling charges, should utilize one or more compactors as a means of cost reduction and streamlining.
