How to choose a compactor

Will the compactor be adequate to handle the volume generated, particularly at peak loading times?

What are the dimensions of the largest box, bag, etc.? Is the clear top opening large enough to accommodate these objects without bridging?
Dry waste is efficiently compacted by a stationary compactor. Wet waste is best handled by a self-contained, liquid-tight compactor.
Is the compactor conveniently located? What is the loading height? Does it save steps and labor? Is it easy to feed? Is one central point adequate or should several locations be considered?
Is there space for the compactor and collection truck to service the compactor? Are overhead clearances adequate?
Is adequate power available? Three-phase? Single phase?
Does installation require a thru-the-wall chute, a doghouse, or a dock-fed hopper? Is the compactor adaptable to these types of installations?
