Are you insured?
We are fully insured and happy to provide a certificate of insurance upon request.
What areas do you serve?
The entire Chicagoland metro area including Cook, Lake, DuPage, Kane and McHenry counties. We may even be able to accommodate customers outside this area.
What does it cost?
Our service price is based on several factors including the number of dumpsters on site, the location of your business, the frequency of service requests, etc. Our goal is to provide the lowest price possible to maximize your overall savings. After the cost of compaction is added to your dumpster fees, you will be paying at least 20% less. We guarantee it!
Is this service safe for the dumpster?
Absolutely! The equipment was designed specifically to work within roll off, open-top dumpsters and has a safety guard on the drum to protect the dumpster from the roller’s metal teeth. We video tape every dumpster compacting and will guarantee a damage-free compaction, or we will pay for the damage!
Are there any long-term commitments?
Not at all. Call us for a single compact or get big discounts for regularly scheduled compacting. We will get you taken care of within 24 hours and often on the same day.
Why does this save us money?
Compacted waste means more material in each dumpster and fewer costly hauls. You will also have less downtime when your dumpsters are hauled off site to empty. Finally, your employees can focus on their jobs rather than dumpster management.
Does this service help our carbon footprint?
Yes. Your dumpsters will require fewer hauls, which means fewer trucks on the road and CO2 emissions reduced by up to 65%. Compacted waste takes up less space at the landfill so you will be doing your part to reduce landfill usage.
Won’t our tonnage fees increase per dumpster?
Probably, but the savings due to fewer hauls will usually more than make up for any overweight fees. If you are below your minimum tonnage weight now, you’ll be able to utilize the full weight you are paying for instead of paying to haul air.
What type of dumpsters do you Compact?
We specialize in 20-40 yard roll-off, open top dumpsters. Smaller dumpsters usually don’t make sense, but we are happy to consider any opportunity to save you money.
Is there material you cannot compact?
Yes. Concrete, bricks, and other masonry will create weight issues so we stay away from dumpsters containing more than 5% masonry products. Shingles, carpet, and mattresses simply don’t compact well. Absolutely no hazardous materials at all.
How long does it take to compact a dumpster?
We are usually in and out within 10 minutes.
No obligation or contract.
