WASTE SOLUTIONS IS OUR BUSINESS.
INTEGRITY IS OUR MANTRA.

Established in 1981 as Planned Maintenance and now West-Pak Equipment Co, our company has become a national leader in waste management equipment. We sell and rent new, refurbished and custom-built products for the commercial and industrial markets. Our extensive product line includes compactors, balers, cart tippers, shredders, and other refuse handling equipment.

We are specialists in electrical, hydraulic, and structural steel design and repair. Our factory trained service technicians have the expertise to design, install, service, troubleshoot and fix virtually any type of waste and recycling equipment.

Our goal is to help you achieve yours.

Companies continually come to us looking for innovations that will give them a competitive edge, promote a healthier environment, and divert rather than discard reusable materials. And we help them achieve those objectives.

Over 3 decades of keeping our promises.

At West-Pak we do what we say we will: We operate with integrity and stand by our word. We remain committed to providing the best possible customer experience 365 days of the year.
