Cheltenham council has taken delivery of 3 G120 static waste compactors fitted with double-sided open top hoppers. This configuration was chosen to make it easier to load in large bulky waste.
Gradeall visited the site to carry out measurements and see what would suit the council’s requirements best, the site already had static compactors with open top hoppers but the loading aperture was too high on them and an inconvenient step was required. The old compactors had also reached the end of their service life and had been decommissioned due to mechanical faults.
Gradeall provided the council with a number of site layouts to allow them to evaluate different options. One was to have sliding door hoppers, the other was to have double-sided open-top hoppers that had a lower loading aperture to eradicate the need for a loading step. In the end, the council decided that the open-top hopper was preferable for this site
