Trash Compactor

Part Number: TCKIT3

Collecting and disposing of trash is a nearly universal facility problem. And the larger the facility, the bigger the job. For example, schools, stadiums and airports may have dozens, if not hundreds, of trash cans to empty every single day. That’s a lot of labor and trash volume. What’s more, trips to the dumpster add up to a lot of lost productivity.

What if you could reduce your trash volume by a third, or even a half? Kaivac's vacuum-powered Trash Compactor removes the air from trash bags in seconds, instantly shrinking them down. The technology works similarly to a food vacuum sealer. To operate, simply place the wand in the trash bag, crimp the top of the bag around the wand by hand, turn the vacuum on, remove the wand when it’s deflated and store the bag in the optional can or seal with a twist-tie.

A reduction in trash volume means workers can collect more at a time, stay on task and be more productive. The reduction also translates to the trash cart as well as the dumpster, which will need less frequent emptying.

Highlights

  • Reduces trash volume by up to one-half
  • Smaller trash volume reduces trips to the dumpster
  • Allows you to carry twice as much trash on your cart or truck
  • Maximizes dumpster space and reduces hauling cost
  • Simplifies trash handling
  • Trash removal is more aesthetic for customers
  • Works with any vacuum source
