Owners and operators need to investigate before deciding on either a new or used compactor; they need to make the unknown – known. Some questions you may be asking yourself are -- do we need a compactor? How much waste are we generating? What size and type do we need? Do we need a indoor or outdoor compactor? Who will be the hauler? Do we have a choice, or it is franchised? (one hauler must be used) Do we have the capital to either purchase new or used? What is our return on investment? The list goes on and on, along with the anxiety.
Today, business owners look for the "best deal" - price and quality of product are the primary factors in making a solid business decision. Buying new equipment is usually the first choice, but it's not always reality. Purchasing a used compactor can save a business owner substantial amounts of money. A used compactor allows companies with small budgets to reduce their investment, minimizing the risk and burden on their cash flow.
A used compactor will provide many other advantages such as diminishing the cost of transportation trash to the disposal site, saves labor, keeps away unwanted pests, controls odor, creates a better work environment, saves customer parking spaces, reduces fire hazards which saves on insurance cost, stops others from using your compactor for their trash disposal, and it helps stop pilferage.

Facilities that have waste that is difficult to compact such as furniture, drums, or pallets should look into pre-crushers. Pre-crushers break down these bulky items into manageable sizes and then pack them into a dumpster unit. Pre-crushers are also used by some facilities to destroy merchandise and prevent scavenging. They work by pushing a compaction plate into a gate located in the compaction chamber. Once the materials are broken apart, the gate is raised and the materials are pushed into the container that the trash hauler can dump. Other types of industrial trash compactors include vertical compactors, indoor compactors, self-contained compactors, and X-press pack compactors.
Since there are so many types of compactors available on the market, it is important for businesses to consult with someone who really knows what they are talking about with regard to compaction equipment. It can be tempting to accept “free” or rental compaction equipment from trash haulers, but this is often a mistake because haulers build the price of the equipment into their profit margin and it can be costly to remove and install their equipment if you decide to change companies. Equipment supplied by waste haulers may have also been used and recirculated several times so that the compaction ratios are not as high as they should be. Global Trash Solutions offers holistic answers to all kinds of trash problems. We will evaluate your waste stream and provide you with your best options. Call us at: 877-367-5495

Trash service is the only unregulated utility left. There are a variety of ways to save money on trash service. Arguably the easiest way to save is by recycling as much as possible to avoid throwing items such as cardboard in your waste management dumpster. Some businesses can save as much as 20% off their monthly bill just by getting a second dumpster in there corral for cardboard. If there is no room, many cities allow the cardboard containers to sit outside the corral whereas a garbage dumpster would have to be enclosed. Municipalities allow this because they want to encourage recycling.
While recycling is the most obvious and eco-friendly way to save on trash service every month, hiring a waste consultant such as Global Trash Solutions can have a greater financial impact than recycling alone. GTS is well-versed in uncovering substantial amounts of revenue in your trash can. We earn our living by developing creative and innovative ways to cut businesses garbage expenses.

The most obvious reason a business that is aiming to be as profitable as possible should look into green waste management solutions is the effect it will have on their operating costs. It is always less costly to have haulers remove recyclables such as glass, plastic, aluminum, and corrugated cardboard than it is to have these items hauled away as trash. It usually costs about 1/3 as much to recycle, and when the market is good sometimes businesses can even get rebates for these items. 25 states offer some type of tax incentive for recycling (You can read more about the tax incentives here: http://www.epa.gov/wastes/conserve/tools/rmd/bizasst/tax-ince.htm).
Sometimes business owners are so busy running their operation that it makes sense to outsource waste and recycling processes to an expert such as Global Trash Solutions. At GTS, we work tirelessly to uncover recycling opportunities for our clients wherever possible. We have implemented single-stream recycling (that is glass, plastic, aluminum, and cardboard all going in the same can) and organics recycling (food and plant waste) for many of our clients. We prefer to divert as much waste as possible from landfills as it is green and cost-effective! Some of our clients have diverted as much as 75% of their waste from landfills.

There are many benefits that come along with hiring a waste consultant. One benefit is that a company can focus on its core competencies and trust that its waste processes are being handled correctly. Waste consultants offer many different services and can perform site surveys at individual locations to help determine the best available options for cost-effective service. On average, businesses that outsource their waste processes to a consultant pay about 35% less than their neighbors who try to handle the garbage on their own. Another benefit is that the time spent on handling service issues can be spent on other things. Waste consultants act as a one-stop, one-call solution to anything garbage-related at any of their client’s locations.
