As you adjust to the new norm, you may be looking for beneficial ways to improve your business. A trash compactor may not be at the top of your list, but it something to consider as it can provide a wide-range of rewards. Here are five reasons you may want to consider a trash compactor from Orwak for your business:


In the recent years, society has placed a huge focus on sustainability to try to protect the environment in which we work and live. Companies all over are implementing green initiatives, whether it be using less paper or the reduction in energy consumption, and are turning to trash compactors as a way to do so. Trash compactors allow businesses to effectively manage the waste that would otherwise accumulate inside or outside the building, thus ultimately ending up in a landfill. When you reduce your waste and carbon footprint, you are not only sustaining your business, but also the environment.


Every day you are having to deal with waste, but the amount and how often is up to you. With a trash compactor, you are able to reduce the amount of waste produced, thus reducing the amount of trash pick-ups needed, and ultimately saving you time and money.


The size and/or type of business you operate can mean lots of waste. All of that waste produced means space is taken away from your business to house that trash until it can be properly disposed. This space could be used for storage or turned into expanded operating space allowing for more patrons during each Phase of reopening. When you use a trash compactor, it crushes the waste into much smaller, more manageable pieces, saving you space and keeps it out of sight.


Believe it or not, trash compactors give businesses more control. When you are forced to use a dumpster, there are plenty of things that can happen out of your control, including the ability to protect your employees. Between spills and outdoor access, the safety of your employees is put in jeopardy. Dumpsters can also invite unwanted odors and rodents. Owning a trash compactor helps to eliminate risks thus putting control back in your hands.


Sure, dumpsters come in a range of sizes, but trash compactors are unique based on your waste and recycling needs. Trash compactors can be self-contained, stationary, touchless, and more. Different sizes are available based on how much or how little waste you accumulate. Trash compactors can also be used inside or outside based on your needs.
