A Range of equipment,
A Variety of choices
West-Pak offers a full line of waste management and recycling equipment—including the solution that’s right for you.
We carry a variety of compactors to choose from, depending on the nature of your trash and the space you have available.
for wet trash
If you have WET trash, you’ll want to choose a self-contained compactor. This type of compactor is preferred in situations where the main volume of waste is wet. A self contained compactor is one unit, therefore, any liquid being disposed is captured and contained within the unit. When a self contained compactor is hauled, the entire unit goes to the landfill, emptied and then returned.
This type of compactor is perfect for applications such as hospitals, nursing homes, cafeterias, restaurants, grocery stores, movie theatres…anywhere with WET trash.
for cardboard and other dry
If you have DRY waste such as cardboard, mixed recyclables and general office trash a stationary compactor will work well. They work in conjunction with a 40 yard container. As the material is pushed into the container it is compacted until the container is full, at which point it is hauled to the landfill or recycling center.
Offices, department stores, hotels, health care and medical facilities and manufacturing plants are all examples of prime stationary compactor settings.
for areas where there’s limited
If space is an issue, a vertical compactor may be your best solution. WET or DRY trash as well as recyclables are perfect for a vertical compactor. When the compactor is full, the 2 yard container (on heavy duty casters) can easily be wheeled to a location where it can be tipped by the hauler. Oftentimes a spare container is purchased to be utilized while the full container is waiting to be picked up.
for multi-level building
An apartment compactor is the right choice for multi-level buildings where a trash chute system is implemented.
Apartments, office buildings and dormitories fit this application perfectly with the compactor being housed in a trash room on the main floor of the building.

Although there are several types of balers, the premise remains the same. A baler will compact and bale a variety of materials such as cardboard, plastic and clothing for easier transportation to your recycling facility. Best of all, your bottom line can be affected in two ways: the selling of the baled materials and pulling the material out of your waste stream.
A pre crusher can be utilized in applications with high volumes of bulk materials such as furniture, pallets, appliances and building scraps. Examples of such industries include manufacturing, auto, recycling, appliance, aerospace, construction, boat builders, manufactured housing and more.
