There are nearly 38,000 supermarkets in the United States. Seventy percent of those are conventional grocery stores, with super centers, gourmet stores, warehouse clubs, and military commissaries making up the remaining 30%.*
When it comes to disposing waste, grocery stores face their own specific challenges. While grocery stores still produce the same types of garbage as the rest of America, they also have to safely dispose of corrugated materials, pallets, and electronics in addition to cardboard, foods, and other refuse. They need to do it all in a way that is safe and sanitary.
What Makes Grocery Compactors Different?
The Sani-Tech Systems' Auger Compactors have a unique design that is both efficient and cost effective. With one motion, our compactors crush and compact waste, reducing size five times faster than traditional hydraulic compactors. This means less hauls, less fuel, and more savings.
The ST1040/30 and ST1046/36 Auger Compactors have high-density bins that handle a steady stream of trash, waste, and recyclables. With a longer and stronger auger shaft and heavier gearbox and bearings, there's nothing these bins can't handle.
The SC1040/30 is designed for supermarket recycling of cardboard and bulky material compacting as well as general refuse handling with an all enclosed system. Bin sizes range from 15 - 28 feet and a capacity ranging from 4,100 - 7,200 pounds, Sani-Tech System's bins suit any store's needs.
With Auger Compactors from Sani-Tech Systems, grocery stores can experience the following benefits:
- Reduced collection costs
- Reduced maintenance fees
- Reduced fuel costs
- No wind-blown debris
- Odor control
- Reduced scavengers/insects
- And more

Cub foods, Family Fare, Safeway, Fred Meyer, Great Day Foods, QFC, Lunds & Byerlys; just to name a few. Here's what one store owner had to say about Sani-Tech's Commercial Trash Compactor:
"If you have to deal with garbage, this is the easiest way to do it. It's cleaner, more cost efficient, and maintenance free. You go from taking a liability like trash and making it into an asset. We will actually make money on our trash this year!" - J.P. Koop, Co-Owner, Family Fare
