SIZE OF WASTE
Is the Feed Opening (Clear Top) large enough to accommodate the largest items without bridging?
Is there sufficient volume of recyclable materials to warrant removing them from the waste stream? Recycling equipment or additional compaction equipment may be needed.
Does the installation comply with recommended ANSI standards? Is there a 42″ high barrier between the user and the charge box? Is there an access interlock switch on chute or hopper doors and gates? Is there a “momentary contact” control required?
Is adequate power available? Three or single phase?
Is the compactor located for easiest use? Loading height? Can a hopper, doghouse (charge box enclosure) or cart dumping system improve convenience? Can value be added (building or employee security) by loading through the wall? Would an Ozone Odor Control System solve odor or pest control problems?
Does, or can, the waste flow to one central point?
Is there space for the compaction system and maneuvering room for collection trucks? Is there adequate over-head clearance? Is the collection truck front-load or rear-load? Is there compatibility with the collection truck?
