ID-10066154-300x199Different businesses have different needs, and determining the best trash compactor to fit those needs is how Global Trash Solutions got our start. Before moving on to consulting for over 1,400 locations, we were the reseller of an indoor trash compactor called the GTS 1000. This compactor was perfect for quick service restaurants. It was about the size of a standard refrigerator – the right size to fit into the back a restaurant with very limited space. We helped our clients find room for them in over 150 restaurants. This model was great because the type of waste these restaurants produce is extremely light and easy to compact. Our clients started saving upwards of 60% on their trash bills, and today our clients save a total of over $2,145,000.00 annually!(more…)
