Compaction of recyclables prior to shipping to the MRF is a proven best practice. Achieved by front/rear load bins, stationary compactors or by simple packing with available loaders, compaction saves shipping costs.
The new “Compactors” section features a lot of great information for you laid out in a convenient drill down format. You simply click the button on the topic that interests you to jump to the detailed information you need.
The linked pages behind each main topic provide explanations of better practices and plenty of examples, discussion and supporting research to help you avoid reinventing the wheel. This can be a great time saver to get you started or if you need to justify your planning or research to senior staff, other departments like purchasing/public works, residents or council.
