Pak’ntainer Compactor

  • Our Pak’ntainer is a self-contained economical and portable compactor / container with remote power pack.

    Portable Compactor - Pak'ntainer Compactor Banner

    It’s designed for compacting and containing wet or dry waste and simplifying waste dumping.

    The Pak’ntainer helps maintain a sanitary environment, while saving money, for those generating as little as 20 cubic yards of refuse a week. Place the Pak’ntainer wherever needed, whenever needed — temporarily or permanently — no anchoring, no concrete pad, no special surfaces required. It can be used alone or to “fill the gap” in combination with other units.

    The container is tapered to achieve superior compaction ratios and aid waste ejection, which eliminates excessive wear and tear on collection trucks. Liquid-tight construction helps ensure a sanitary environment. The drain enables water to be removed, lowering disposal costs.

    Available in 3, 4, 5, and 6 Cubic Yard front-load and 6 Cubic Yard rear-load models.
