Advantages of Using a Self-Contained Compactor
Compactors are powered by hydraulics or augers to crush and mold waste into easily-transportable chunks. The type of waste varies from one company to another, and there are different kinds of compactors to deal with various types of garbage. A self-contained model is often used by companies that produce a lot of liquid waste.
Its benefits include the following:
When garbage with liquid waste, like ones from restaurants and supermarkets, get compressed by a normal compactor, they may leak out nasty juices onto the floor. This can spread foul odors and cause slips and falls. A self-contained compactor, like the RJ-88SC, is sealed tight to prevent leakages and even has a deodorizer to keep the stench from wafting through your facility.
Leaks and strong smells from compressed waste can attract all kinds of pests to your compactor. These scavengers can leave disgusting droppings in your facility and even damage important equipment. Because a self-contained compactor prevents leaks and odors from escaping its chamber, you won’t have a problem with squirrels and badgers wreaking havoc in your office.
Leaks from liquid waste may also contain dangerous bacteria and viruses. Some of them can cause dangerous diseases even when inhaled or touched. A self-contained compactor doesn’t let these hazardous organisms out of its shell. This reduces the chances of your workers getting sick because of processed garbage.
A self-contained compactor has a variety of benefits that improve the sanitation and productivity of your waste management system. Get in touch with a WESSCO representative today to find a model that suits your facility’s needs.
