Commercial Waste Dumpsters

Types of Commercial Waste Compactors

Compactors can come in a variety of shapes and sizes, allowing them to meet a range of commercial waste needs.

Common Types of Compactors

  • Vertical compactors: Great for when a company generates a large volume of waste but has limited space

  • Apartment compactors: Widely used in high-rise apartment buildings; use "chutes" to move the waste materials to waste containers at the lower levels of the building

  • Roll-off compactors (stationary or breakaway): Involve a compactor connected to a removable roll-off container; used when there are large volumes of dry, compactable materials being generated and there is no┬áissue with space
