TV-3000 Self-Contained Compactor


The TV-3000 is a “front-end” based self-contained compactor that is specifically designed for waste streams that contain a large percentage of wet waste. The self-contained compactor will contain all of the waste stream liquids in the front-end style container that is positioned directly under the compactor head. Unlike our other roll-off based “SPH” models, this unit is designed to be dumped by standard front-end style waste trucks. Each compactor is manufactured with a container that has fully welded seams, contains a full liquid sump area and is equipped with side pockets to accommodate the forks of a front-end waste truck. This model has a distinct advantage over the TV-2000 unit in so far as the feed height is only 42″ no matter what size of container is used with it. The unit is available only in a rear feed configuration; but can be equipped with a 4, 6 or 8 cubic yards container.
