Wastequip shrinks compactors

Wastequip has added a smaller footprint for its compactors. These new products will be available through distributors or directly through Wastequip beginning in May 2023.

Wastequip’s newest stationary compactor design offers a smaller overall footprint and shorter feeder chute, making it fit in tight spaces.

Its new one-side ratchet latch system allows for connection to nearly any brand or model equipment, ensuring in-field latch change-outs avoid the mess caused by possible connection gaps.

Additional design features include a lighter lid, a laser eye sensor to monitor the contents of the hopper and automatically cycle the compactor as needed, a simplified control panel and reduced key functions and a manual forward button that allows the user to move the ram forward to clear jams.

This new product builds on the Opti-Pak vertical compactor series launched last year for hospitality and commercial applications and offers an industry-leading warranty. 

“Our Wastequip product engineers and sales teams are committed to engaging with and really listening to our customers and prospects to determine what they really need and adjust our offerings accordingly,” said Nick Daddabbo, director of product management at Wastequip.

“We’ve examined every aspect of our previous models and what’s available from our competitors to design and manufacture what we believe to be the best small footprint apartment compactor available today, and we encourage anyone in the market for one to reach out to one of our sales team members for more information.”
