Self-Contained Compactors

Self-contained compactors are designed to store and transport “wet” waste and recycling materials, reduce disposal costs, improve working conditions for your employees, and prevent any potential contamination of your work area. Ranging in size from 15 to 34 cubic yards, self-contained compactors vary in material handling capabilities.

Protect your team and their time

Using a self-contained compactor is beneficial for any business because it:

  • Reduces waste hauling expenses
  • Improves the appearance of your business
  • Protects against insects, vermin, and scavengers from entering your site
  • Eliminates odors with their liquid tight design
  • Prevents contamination of work and public areas
  • Improves working conditions and employee safety

The addition of a tipper system in conjunction with a compactor has become very valuable for businesses. A cart tipper lifts, tilts, and empties large waste bins into compactors, taking on the heavy lifting so you no longer need to!

Using a tipper system significantly decreases the time required to manage your waste and recycling streams while also keeping your employees safe by reducing the possibility for work-related injuries. Your employees can use either toters or large wheeled carts to move waste and recycling throughout your facility and the tipper will take over from there, unloading the toter or wheeled cart into the compactor. Using larger toters or carts allows for fewer trips to the waste equipment, saving labour costs.

Tippers may be mounted as stand-alone items on the ground or dock, and they are sometimes attached directly to a compactor (while utilizing the power pack from that compactor). AtSource can even supply dual tipper systems so you can use both 96 gallon toters and 4 yard front load containers.

Tipper styles:

  • Ground level
  • Dock mounted
  • Compactor mounted side or rear fed

AtSource will work with your team to design a tipper system that works best for your site and employees.
