  • Extra-wide ram, clear-top opening (78″ x 40″) accepts larger material

  • Low feed height (43 1/2″) – great for ground feed applications, greater slope in chute feed applications, and low dock height applications.

  • Full “P” shaped door seal and patented double-hinge provides liquid tightness.

  • FQwick Clean Tank® flushes the area behind the ram

  • 12″ high sump area contains liquid

  • CYCON Life-Xtender® provides advanced performance, higher compaction ratios, and smoother, quieter operation.

  • Also available as Green Built®, featuring Solar or 5 hp high-efficiency power units and other environmentally friendly components.



The P-shaped Door Seal is specially designed for portable compaction containers to provide a superior watertight closure. The mounting is engineered for quick and easy installation when replacement is necessary, requiring no field fitting, cutting, or welding.

Every RJ-100SC compactor is tested for watertightness before leaving the factory. Liquid retention is ensured by the incredible Double-Hinge. It creates uniform seal compression while eliminating the seal “scrubbing” and damage so often encountered with competitive designs. The Double-Hinge also saves expensive driver and truck time because only one easy-to- operate ratchet makes it work.



The innovative “Bubble Gate” adds a full cubic yard to container capacity. Superior compaction ratios result from its special curved shape. These two unique benefits reduce costs of disposal.

The ultimate in latch systems, the “Auto Relatch” eliminates the need to hold the door while operating the latch ratchet. This design enables the operator to use both hands on the ratchet.



The packing ram is supported by specially formulated cast iron shoes which ride on replaceable wear strips. This exclusive design protects the charge box floor from the full force of the packing ram, extending its life and dramatically reducing compaction-robbing friction.


The Qwik Clean Tank with exclusive Trash Check™ is a standard feature on the DRC II. It funnels any liquid seepage occurring during compaction into an enclosed area underneath the charge box floor. The liquid is automatically discharged at the disposal site, in effect flushing the container and the area behind the ram.


Standard on all DRC Compactors

  • Upper doors are top hinged and have ratchet locks that enable the door to be opened independently of the lower doors.
  • Lower doors are hinged in the center of the container. each door is equipped with marathon’s standard ratchet latch and open independently for controlled discharge of compacted material.
  • For wet waste applications, an optional door gasket is available with marathon’s custom designed p-shaped door seal, developed specially for self-contained compactors used for wet waste. either or both sides may be gasketed.


Metro Compactor is committed to providing waste compaction solutions that meet the global sustainability needs of our customers. With each new product, we have made measurable strides in reducing energy and fuel consumption while continuing to offer superior product performance.

Our line of Green Built solar and solar-hybrid compactors is a first in the industry.

The 100% solar-powered models compact refuse using the power of the sun for true independence from the power grid and its associated costs.

The solar-hybrid models connect to the power grid as a backup that automatically switches when necessary. When in solar mode, the compactor uses no AC power. When in hybrid mode, the compactor uses much less energy than conventional power units. The batteries recover as the compactor continues to be available for operation.
