Cities throughout the country have passed new legislation that requires all businesses to sort their trash before disposing of it.
Our unique design compacts loose trash bags into a heavy-duty tote at a 10:1 ratio. This process produces a 35-50 lb bag that can be easily transported to a dumpster or the street for pick-up.
Many facilities struggle with the amount of space that loose trash and cardboard require for storage before disposal. This issue often results in added handling times, increased hauling costs, and costly storage violations.
Reduce your trash footprint.
Minimize Trash Handling Time.
Shortly after this innovative eco-friendly hotel opened, they quickly realized that they didn't have enough space to sort/manage the trash and recyclables being generated by the hotel and restaurant. As is the case with many New York properties, finding the space was the problem. Their design consultant called on Slammer to solve their problem.
Our team conducted an on-site evaluation and realized that they were generating a significant amount of mixed trash, recyclables and cardboard that was being stored in laundry totes in a service hallway. We observed several violations caused by improper sorting and storage.
Our teamed worked closely with their engineer and consultant to implement a complete solution. Together, we identified a small storage closet that we converted into a waste management area. The Slammer is designed to operate in small spaces. We implemented a compliant sorting process using our color-coded and labeled totes to make the entire process simple and effective. Our unit reduced their six large laundry totes into four small Slammer totes that are sorted, compacted, and stored in the same space until pick-up. Their waste area is now in full compliance.
