Compactor Specifications and Design

CRE Developers need Architects who are knowledgeable about compactor specifications and design. Most compactor pad sites are designed too small. Therefore, they cannot support industrial and commercial compactor sizes that match the property’s waste generation rates.

Poor upfront planning results in trash overflowing daily and increased truck traffic. Trucking dependence and excessive production of CO2 gases increase visual, noise, and odor pollution, thus creating a negative experience for retail visitors.

Inadequate Compactor Pad Sites are responsible for:

  • Daily Over-Flowing Trash and Recycling Materials
  • Increased Odors and Residual Leakage
  • Excessive Truck Traffic and Disruption of Retail Selling
  • Noise Disturbances from Banging Containers
  • Abnormal Wear and Tear of Driving Surfaces
  • Production of CO2 resulting from Excessive Trips to the Property
  • Higher Collection and Housekeeping Costs
