What should you consider when buying waste compaction equipment?

These are just a few of the many important questions that you will need the answers to before selecting the correct equipment for any compactor application. Mark-Costello's Sales Manager or local RamJet Distributor will help you work through these and other issues to ensure correct equipment selection.

 

 

SIZE OF WASTE
Is the Feed Opening (Clear Top) large enough to accommodate the largest items without bridging?

RECYCLABLES
Is there sufficient volume of recyclable materials to warrant removing them from the waste stream? Recycling equipment or additional compaction equipment may be needed.

SAFETY STANDARDS
Does the installation comply with recommended ANSI standards? Is there a 42" high barrier between the user and the charge box? Is there an access interlock switch on chute or hopper doors and gates? Is there a "momentary contact" control required?

POWER SOURCE
Is adequate power available? Three or single phase?

CONVENIENCE
Is the compactor located for easiest use? Loading height? Can a hopper, doghouse (charge box enclosure) or cart dumping system improve convenience? Can value be added (building or employee security) by loading through the wall? Would an Ozone Odor Control System solve odor or pest control problems?

LOCATION
Does, or can, the waste flow to one central point?

AVAILABLE SPACE
Is there space for the compaction system and maneuvering room for collection trucks? Is there adequate over-head clearance? Is the collection truck front-load or rear-load? Is there compatibility with the collection truck?
