The Tim Hortons restaurant in Hagersville, Ontario, is the busiest of Shaun Salverda’s six franchise locations. His employees are kept very busy meeting the needs of their clientele, which is often lined up inside the restaurant all the way to the front door, if not bumper to bumper in the drive-thru lane snaked around the outside of the building.
For the modern workplace, the disposal of waste often seems like a messy, smelly, and unnecessarily difficult task. It doesn’t have to be according to Modern Waste Products out of Woodstock, Ontario, who says their innovative, self-contained garbage compaction bin is the same size as a standard bin but holds up to six times more waste.
With its built-in compaction capabilities, the sealed BinPak not only contains trash, odours and liquids inside, keeping out rodents, wasps and unauthorized dumpers, but compacts waste volume by up to 6:1 for fewer required truck pick-ups per month. Quite simply, BinPak holds the equivalent of six standard dumpsters. For office, plant, store or restaurant workers used to reaching above their heads to flip open a heavy lid and then having to throw 50 lb. bags of garbage up and into a traditional 80 in. high bin, the BinPak’s front-access hopper accepts garbage at a comfortable 24 in. off the ground.
“This is much easier than having to lift bags,” says Mark Hanson, Director of Sales & Marketing for the BinPak product line.
For workers feeding the bin, the secured compaction controls are conveniently located at the lockable front loading door; loading and compacting garbage requires minimal physical strength and time. Once filled, the BinPak’s single electrical connection and auto re-latching lid result in quick emptying cycle times.
According to Hanson, with less trips to the landfill required, haulers can optimize their routes and schedules while operators can better manage disposal and pick-up costs.
BinPak units feature an overall height of 2,032 mm (80-inches), load height of 610 mm (24 inches), (with width of 2,057 mm and length of 1,667 mm). Compaction ratio is approximately 6 to 1, with volume of 4,600 litres ( 6 cu.yd.)
