Compactors can substantially reduce waste hauling requirements, and by choosing Tri-State Cardboard we can provide a variety of solutions for your waste removal needs. We offer every style of compactor available. Stationary, self contained, front load, pre-crushers, heavy duty industrial compactors, and shredders are just a few of the options we can provide. We also offer repair service for customer owned equipment. Choosing the right type of compactor depends on many factors such as waste volume, accessibility for haulers, how it will be fed, and overall security are just a few considerations. With the right product, paybacks can be as little as one year or less.

Compactors do not merely flatten waste streams - it compresses it up and feeds it directly into a roll-off container ready for hauling. No bulky bales or loose waste to store or take up space. Check out these eye-opening benefits of a compactor:

Significant labor savings - A vertical baler takes just under a minute to complete a single cycle. The operator can load about 10 lbs. of un-flattened boxes per cycle, which adds up to about 90 minutes of cycle time to complete a typical 950 lb. bale. Loading time, including fitting and arranging the cartons to fit the small 25" high feed opening, averages 40 to 60 seconds per cycle. Tying, ejecting, staging and manually loading bales onto docked trailers adds another 20 minutes, bringing the total to about three hours to process one bale. A compactor needs only a fraction of the labor required for baling. It handles full-size boxes, eliminating the need to break them down to fit into a baler. A compactor is always moving forward, feeding and compacting into a container in less than a fraction of the time it takes to produce a single half-ton bale. Again, zero time is required for bale handling. Labor savings with a compactor are tremendous!

Saves space - A compactor and the receiving container are located outside of your building and can operate in virtually all weather conditions. All interior floor space can be devoted to productive operations - all recycling activity is done outside.

Safer - Manual loading, tying, removal and handling of bales often pose safety risks to the operators. Feeding the compactor is virtually the only labor function required, and this can often be done with cart dumpers, feed chutes or conveyors.

Lower costs - No baling wire to buy, back charges on incomplete loads, re-baling of undersized bales, or minimal cap price requirements.

Clean building, clean yard. No storage required for bales in the parking area, inside the building or in a trailer at a busy loading dock.
