Smart compacter in action

Universal Refuse container

Based in the Netherlands, Keywaste BV develops products for the waste industry. Keywaste BV has developed several systems for the efficient compaction of plastic waste, cardboard packaging, cans and other refuse.
Environmentally-friendly compaction systems have been developed specifically for the collection of containerized waste in various volumes which decreases the number of times the container must be emptied by the indicated factor and thereby drastically reduce CO2 emissions.
Fewer trips to empty the containers mean less pavement wear and disruptions to local residents.
Our compaction systems work electro-mechanically and operate on 24 volts DC.
The integrated batteries ensure trouble-free operation and can be charged, for example, overnight by connecting the system to the regular mains for street lighting (220 Volts f.e.).
To protect the environment, charging can also take place using solar panels.

The units can be equipped with an optional card-activated access system.
The compaction frequency, container fill-level and battery voltage can be read-out. This information can also be delivered remotely via SMS or the internet.
