The battle may seem neverending when it comes to your company’s trash strategy. Your company produces the waste, your staff hauls it out to the appropriate bins – including breaking down cardboard boxes – and the whole cycle repeats. This is all an effort to reduce the amount of space that trash takes up in your business.
Believe it or not, this situation is common in almost every business in the country. Businesses are looking for better ways to quickly reduce the amount of space that trash takes up without paying staff for hours just to take care of it. This is why more and more businesses are starting to invest in an on-site industrial compactor that can take care of their needs. Here are some ways that industrial waste compactors can help benefit your business.
Improved Safety and Security
Having an industrial compactor at your site means you’ll have fewer garbage trucks coming in and out of your property. This amounts to less wear and tear on your property, leading to safer driving conditions over time. This is also particularly helpful for organizations that have higher security measures and would benefit from fewer vehicles coming and going.
Using an industrial compactor can also make things safer for your employees and your business. Overflowing trash can become a fire hazard – something that is easily remedied with a compactor. Additionally, your employees won’t have to break waste down manually, reducing the risk of injuring their hands or getting sick. Lastly, because waste is completely contained in a compactor, your employees won’t be at risk for falls or slips caused by spills leaking out.
Increased Storage Space
Obviously, one of the main benefits of owning an industrial compactor is the extra space that you gain. Compactors turn your waste into smaller, manageable bales and cubes. This means you can store more waste in a smaller amount of space until collection. You’ll end up gaining a ton of space that you can use for storage or any other way that you see fit.
Most compactors are easy to operate, so you shouldn’t have to worry about any sort of extensive training for your employees. In fact, most compactors are operated with the push of a button.
These are only a few of the benefits that come along with having an industrial compactor. You’ll also save costs on transporting the waste, the fuel, and the hauling costs. Nearly every type of business will end up benefiting from the implementation of an industrial compactor over their current waste system.
