The T-20X stationary compactor has been specifically engineered to be used in multi-unit residential buildings and can be placed under a trash chute or used as a free standing system. It can be coupled with front-end containers or rear packer containers and will accept containers ranging in size from 1.5 to 4 cubic yards. The unit is available as a manually operated unit or when placed under a chute it can be supplied as a fully automated unit that will cycle unattended 24/7. It can also be used with our “tri-sorter and bi-sorter” head assemblies when the waste stream needs to be sorted.
