Compactor monitor resort hotel case study


Large resort hotel with highly variable levels of business due to seasonality. Garbage compactor was on a regular service schedule, twice per week.

  • Compactor often was not full when picked up by hauler.
  • Seasonal variations meant large variation in waste volumes generated.
  • Engineering staff had no accurate method to measure compactor fill level.

The Results
RecycleSmart installed an automated, remote electronic monitoring system to maximize compactor utilization.

  • Installed electronic 3A full indicator light to indicate bin full levels.
  • Installed wireless compactor monitor to automatically call for service when compactor reaches ZA full.
  • Eliminated 72 unnecessary compactor pickups per year for $11,000.00 in annual savings, reduced truck trips, reduced loading dock congestion and reduced carbon emissions (from unnecessary truck trips).
