Lisa Jackson, head of the EPA, was interviewed on the Dr. Oz show about water safety. Dr. Oz's final question was, "What is the most important message you can send to people?" Ms. Jackson's answer was that if there were an 80% - 90% national recycling rate we could create millions of jobs and recycling would become its own supply chain. She went on to say that people think it's such a simple thing when they see the green bins set out, but recycling can be its own energy program and water savings program.

Self-Contained Compactors

Self-Contained Compactors:

These compactors are come in a variety of sizes from 15 cubic yards to 34 cubic yards. They are great for dealing with customers in the restaurant or food setting that deal with a large quantity of food waste. Since these units are “self-contained” they allow for of all waste liquids and smells to be contained within the unit themselves. These units also have an average compaction ratio of 3:1.

Vertical Compactor (Vert-i-Pak)

Vertical Compactor (Vert-i-Pak):

These units are used for high-rise buildings including offices, condos, and apartments. They allow for the customer to have the material dropped down through a trash chute and then compacted into a front load container that can be easily wheeled to the curb for servicing. They typically have a compaction ratio of 2:1 reducing the frequency of how often your front-end cans need to be dumped.

Horizontal Balers

Horizontal Balers:

These balers are ideal for customers that generate large amounts of paper i.e. commercial printers, packaging supply companies, etc. The have the ability to bale large quantities of paper in a relatively short period of time.



Shredders are used to shred paper or plastics to maximize space in a container. They can be used for document destruction for customers that have a large quantity of documents they need destroyed on a consistent basis and would like to do it on sight. Additionally, they can be used to shred or chip plastics that are light or odd shape in order to ship for recycling.



Hoggers are used to break down large corrugated boxes or sheets to ensure material will bale properly for shipping; this piece of equipment is a great supplement to an operation that has a baler but difficulty fitting their corrugated sheets into it.
