Don't Let Them Talk You Into It


By Compactor Rat #437

We've had reports from our sales team that there are large companies that manage waste out there trying to talk their residential clients out of using a trash compactor in favor of a rotation of dumpsters. This is one of the oldest tricks in the book – waste removal companies are in the business of removing waste; the more they take with them, the more they can bill for. This is inadvisable for any building with a working compactor, and only works for low volume complexes.

Lack of a compactor means more physical space is used to store the trash. Residential management and maintenance teams already have a lot of spinning plates and eliminating the compactor means now someone has to manage the dumpster rotation. Full dumpsters that remain under an active chute discharge will pile over and eventually wind up clogging the chute. Not only will this create a mess and attract rodents, this will dirty the chute and possibly cause excessive load on the chute support structure.

We recommend that most residential dwelling complexes with over 15 units have a compactor. If you don't know if your building needs a compactor, or have a dumpster rep itching to make changes to your trash room, then call us for a consultation today.
