RJ-250HT Self-Contained Compactor with Hydraulic Tailgate

The RJ-250HT is particularly well suited for security chute-fed and dock-fed applications where maneuvering space for the collection vehicle is limited. Unique to the RJ-250HT, the compactor is built into the same door through which the compacted refuse is later emptied, eliminating the need for the additional space necessary for the time-consuming double "turn-around" maneuver required for conventional self-contained models.

The RJ-250 Compactors combine the ability to safely store high-liquid content wastes in controlled environments with the conveniences and economics of compaction! Offering maximum benefits for:

Large Restaurants
Hospitals and institutions
Resorts and food processors


Components are selected for longevity and minimum maintenance, with special attention given to the selection of highly sensitive components. Stress engineering provides the optimum degree of structural integrity. Only the best materials are used. The highest standards of quality are observed in the manufacturing process. That's why you'll find Mark-Costello Compactors "packing trash" long after other makes have failed!

The RJ-250 units are state-of-the-art in roll-off self-contained compactors featuring oversized feed opening and expanded container storage capacity. They are designed to store and transport your wastes, prevent contamination of your work and public areas in accordance with public health department requirements, improve working conditions for your employees and reduce disposal costs.

RJ-250HT Compactor can be customized with a variety of loading arrangements to suit your specific needs.
