In the world of trash, “overwhelming” can be an understatement when trying to select compactors for your Multifamily communities – whether you have an existing property or new construction. Choosing your system can sometimes be compared jokingly to blindly selecting a bottle of wine at a grocery store; Sometimes you hit it out of the park but more often than not, you make a bad selection and then you are stuck with the results. The resulting uninformed decision is frequently an impulse choice just to move the process along. We here at CSI would like to help, and give you information that will make you aware of some important facts when considering your waste system selection.

Compactors systems are not all created equal and in the Multifamily Industry this can be a confusing process as you navigate compactors models, options, sizes and specialized features. Local providers tend to offer waste systems as a means to lock your community into long term hauling agreements. Unfortunately most of the time they are providing systems not designed for wet garbage or not able to provide heavy compaction forces. Compacting heavy loads is a key benefit: Fewer Hauls = Bigger Savings and a greener ECO footprint. Most compactors are usually undersized, often improperly installed and not sized correctly for the individual project. Most providers are checking boxes just to complete a sale while not even considering how the system will perform long-term for residents or achieve the goals of their customer. The result is under-performing waste equipment that creates problems with trash overflow, unhappy staff members, residents, and budgets that are always increasing.

We here at CSI believe that Waste Compactors Should Not Be A Crime Scene! Rather, they should be the central hub of your community for all your waste disposal needs.
