Waste compactor: the revolution in the waste sector
30 November 2021
In recent years, also thanks to the action of activists in this field, the waste sector has evolved exponentially. An emblem of this evolution is certainly the method of separate waste collection: a part, perhaps the most important, is entrusted to the citizens, in fact, it is they who carry out a first differentiation that must be implemented by dividing the waste according to the category of waste. which they are part of, for example glass goes with glass and so on. In addition to the benefits, however, separate collection can become problematic for ordinary citizens because, when carried out door to door, a pile of garbage is created, due to the aforementioned differentiation, which could create space problems inside a house.
This is where the waste compactor technology was born
The waste compactor acts in this sense, that is, they reduce the amount of waste so that it can be easily stored inside the house pending the passage of the competent bodies. Another advantage, which will make all people who care about nature and the environment happy, is the reduction in volume itself, since the latter is essential for greater environmental sustainability.
There are various types of compactor: first of all, they can be manual or electric which are the most convenient as regards the price but offer less force as regards the compression of the waste; the latter have much higher costs but offer greater force to compress waste and are much more efficient. Then there are simple presses to compact various waste such as plastic and paper; and, finally, there are shredders that are used to crush glass and to compact organic waste.
The compactors are very efficient and have a real action on environmental protection.
