How a Trash Compactor Benefits Your Rental Property

When you own a property management company, one of the challenges is finding effective ways for your tenants to dispose of their trash. While dumpsters are quite common, they can quickly fill up and overflow. To prevent this from happening, you must schedule more frequent trash collection pickups with your trash hauler that increase your waste management expenses.

A better alternative to solving the problem of waste management for your rental property is investing in a commercial trash compactor. A commercial trash compactor for your rental property has benefits that you may not have realized.

Having a Trash Compactor at Your Complex Benefits Everyone

While you weigh the pros and cons of buying or renting a compactor, consider the benefits of this piece of equipment:

1. Stop unsightly dumpster overflows.

Installing a waste compactor eliminates the unsightly dumpster overflows that happen in larger rental communities. Rather than having trash sticking out of the top and around the sides of the dumpster, it is all neatly compacted inside. This saves money on overflow fees from your dumpster company.

2. Fewer pickups are needed.

An industrial compactor reduces the amount of waste, so you won’t need your dumpsters emptied as often. Imagine if you could reduce your weekly pickups from 4 down to just 1.! You would save a lot of money and be able to accommodate much more trash between scheduled pickups.

3. Improve safety and reduce liability risks.

Using an outside trash compactor stops people from dumpster diving looking for free stuff that others tossed out. You don’t have to worry about people potentially getting injured climbing in and out of dumpsters. Our commercial waste compactor models have safety features that prevent access to the inside.

4. Stop rodents and other animals from getting into the trash.

Another benefit of getting a trash compactor for your rental property is it makes it harder for raccoons, possums, rats, and mice to get into your rental facility’s waste and recycling. You won’t ever be greeted by trash strewn around the dumpster, blowing freely across your rental property. Insects and rodents can’t feed on household garbage when it is compacted tightly, which reduces the amount of pest problems in and around your rental property.

5. Make your rental community look nice.

You can install an industrial trash compactor in an enclosed space, so you don’t distract from the natural beauty of your rental property. When giving tours to prospective tenants, they will not be put off by visions of trash bags overflowing from the dumpster and the smell of garbage wafting through the air.

6. There are trash compactors for every space and type of building.

There are many types of compactors designed for indoor use, which can even include a chute system for multi-story buildings. If you lack sufficient room outside to install a trash compactor, there are indoor, self-contained apartment trash compactors that compact multiple bags of trash down into a tidy cube.

7. Save money on waste management expenses.

We’ve already touched on how using a compactor can save you money with fewer trash pickups since the trash is compacted. If you also collect recycled materials at your rental community, you can have multiple compactors for different waste materials. You can then sell your recycled materials and use the proceeds to keep your rental property looking great.

8. You can rent or lease a trash compactor for your rental properties.

If you buy a trash compactor or recycling baler for your rental property or condo complex, it will start paying for itself almost immediately. However, many rental property owners choose trash compactor rentals, especially across multiple locations. By using rental services for waste management equipment, you can keep your costs fixed and your profits up all year long.
