Schools generate loads of waste every day. From cafeteria foodwaste, recyclables and trash to classroom papers and books, properly managing this waste can positively impact both the environment and the future of the school district and it doesn't have to mean an expensive waste management overhaul. Our proven trash compactors, cardboard balers, and organics composters make it easy for school districts to safely and effectively reduce the volume of waste while streamlining waste handling, saving space, beautifying the campus, and reducing their carbon emmissions footprint. Critically, the School District can increase waste diversion and slash it's garbage/recycling costs 35%-75%.
