New Compactor for Wellingborough Shopping Centre

Swansgate Shopping Centre’s extremely old compactor fed from a loading dock via a chute through the wall, needed to be replaced. Having selected Capital Compactors to supply the replacement, work commenced at 8.00am on Monday 4th December. By mid-morning the chute through the wall was gone and the old compactor removed. Before installing the new compactor, steel plates were installed to form a solid and level base. The steel plates under the bin lift area are anti slip chequer plate so that they do not cause a slip hazard for staff when wet.

The compactor is offloaded and installed. As the headroom is limited, and all Capital Compactors machines are manufactured with fully boltable hoppers, the engineers simply had to unbolt the hopper to gain the clearance required to offload the unit in areas with limited overhead clearance.
