March 02, 2023

[CHARLOTTE, N.C. – October 11, 2022] — Wastequip, North America’s leading manufacturer of waste handling equipment, introduces the OptiPak Series of compactors. Offering unmatched toughness in compact sizes, the new OptiPak brings efficiency and ease of use to this line of versatile compactors.

Ideal for businesses like restaurants, grocery stores, apartment buildings and shopping centers, office complexes, or any other location where a compactor is required but space is limited, the OptiPak provides efficient compaction with less space.

Available with 3-yard front- and rear-load containers and 4-, 6-, or 8-yard front-load containers, the OptiPak features a nimble 4-in-1 head with 90-degree rotation, allowing for a full 360-degree pack in just 30 seconds. Designed to navigate tight spaces like apartments and alleyways, the new 4-in-1 head can freely arrange the direction the top faces, allowing for an orientation that perfectly fits the space it occupies. The adjustable legs also offer additional versatility for easier shipping and on-site height adjustments.

In addition, the new OptiPak features an updated control panel and a new motor. The control panel has been streamlined from its previous design, providing a better user experience, while adding operational settings that can be tailored to meet individual user preferences. Powered by a DC motor, the OptiPak provides increased reliability and reduced downtime.

The OptiPak also incorporates Wastequip’s popular Automatic Maintenance Scheduler (AMS) into the power unit to alert operators when preventive maintenance is required.

“The OptiPak compactor is the result of extensive industry benchmarking and listening to our customers to ensure we continue to offer market leading compaction solutions. It is the small compactor that’s ready to do big work, combining adjustability and streamlined operation with legendary Wastequip toughness,” said Nick Daddabbo, director of product management for Wastequip. “The OptiPak is a uniquely agile compactor that provides efficient compaction where space is limited.”
