National trash compactor supplier forms new division

The new lease and rental division, Eco Rentals, will provide compaction solutions to businesses.


Epax Systems, Panorama City, California, has announced the formation of a new lease and rental division. Operating as Eco Rentals, the new division will focus on providing waste compaction solutions to businesses across North America. Leasing or renting equipment is an economical alternative that allows users to gain the benefits of compaction with no capital investment, Epax reports in a press release.

With a large inventory of new, demo and pre-owned equipment, Eco Rentals can supply a wide range of compaction equipment, including self-contained compactors, stationary compactors, vertical compactors, apartment compactors as well as horizontal and vertical balers.

In addition to conventional systems, the company also offers solutions for open-top containers and dumpsters with its line of Ropax Rolling Compactors. These unique compactors use a heavy rolling drum with large metal teeth attached to an articulating boom. As the drum rolls back and forth it crushes, rips, tears, macerates and compresses waste in the dumpster.

“Historically, interest in leasing and rentals surges in times of economic uncertainty,” says Stefan Nielsen, chief operating officer at Epax Systems. “We are happy to be able to accommodate the demand.”

According to Epax Systems, waste compactors can significantly increase the amount of trash that can fit in a container meaning fewer “hauls” by the waste disposal contractor and leading to significant cost savings.

Eco Rental systems can be installed anywhere in the continental United States. According to Epax Systems, shipping, installation, setup and routine maintenance are all covered in the monthly maintenance fee. Rental rates start at $235 per month.
