Are you thinking about installing an industrial trash compactor at your facility to help with waste management? A trash compactor is a very attractive option for many companies. Trash compactors can cut down on the number of waste pick-ups that you need to schedule every month. They can also help with pest control issues and eliminate the odor generated by your company’s trash. However, before you install a new trash compactor, there are some things to consider. Ask yourself these questions before you order a trash compactor for your company.
How much waste are you generating every week?
Unfortunately, there are many companies out there that have absolutely no idea how much waste they are generating at the moment. Before you install a trash compactor, you should have some idea of the amount of waste you are generating and where it’s coming from. Additionally, you should take a look at your waste management plan as a whole and see where a trash compactor fits in. It should give you a better idea about whether or not a trash compactor will make sense for you.
What kind of waste does your company create?
In addition to figuring out how much waste your company generates, you should also take a look at what kind of waste you are creating. There are some items that you might not be able to put into a trash compactor, so you’re going to want to think about the types of waste you have to deal with on a regular basis before committing to a trash compactor. You obviously don’t want to bring a compactor in and then realize that a different waste management product may have served you better based on the waste your company creates most often.
How much money do you spend on waste management at the moment?
When used properly, trash compactors can cut down on the amount of money you spend on waste management significantly. You might be able to get away with one trash collection every other week as opposed to multiple trash collections in a single week. Nevertheless, it’s important to analyze the finances associated with waste management to see how much of a difference a trash compactor will make.
If you take the time to answer these questions, you should be able to figure out if an industrial trash compactor is right for you.
