    COMPACTORS

    REDUCE YOUR TRASH COST AND LET US HELP YOU GET THE HIGHEST VALUE FOR YOUR WASTE BY-PRODUCTS

    Feed Commodities offers a wide range of compactors and containers for our medium-sized bakeries that need more capacity in their waste systems and have the room to locate a large container.

    The compactors we provide are always self-contained, meaning the charging unit stays with the container. These compactors have a sealed rear door and come equipped with lids to deter pests. Compactors have 24 cubic yard containers, with either 1 or 2 yard charge chambers. These units come equipped with their own power pack, control system, and hydraulic reservoir. To view our compactor specifications, click here. Typically, these systems also come with a scale system and hydraulic dumper.

    Feed Commodities services our compactor accounts based on information we receive from our scale systems. When paged, our drivers are dispatched to our customers’ location to change out the compactor, ensuring that our customers always have space in an available container. Just-in-time changing out of the compactor also reduces cost and ensures that our customers receive the highest value for their waste by-products.

    The containers Feed Commodities provide range in size from 15 to 40 cubic yards. All of our rolloff containers are covered and have sealed rear doors to reduce the possibility of spillage.

    We have 3 Types of

    CONTAINERS

    container-splite-lid-min

    CONTAINERS
    WITH SPLIT LIDS

    These lids open by sliding along runners at the top of the container over or under one another. With this system, only half of the container is ever open at a time. These systems are ideal for locating off loading docks.

    container-single-lid-min

    CONTAINERS
    WITH SINGLE LID

    The lid on these containers is raised with a hand-crank or electric winch. The lid swivels on either side of the container, allowing loading from one side at a time. These systems are best used in an open parking lot, where the container can be loaded with a forklift.

    LEVELING
    CONTAINERS

    These containers are electronically controlled and sealed except for a small hopper on the top rear. An auger controls the product inside, pushing contents to the nose as it’s filled from the rear. It includes a hydraulic dumper and scale. It’s ideal for dough and dense products.

    TRAILERS

    OUR SMART TRAILERS ALERT US WHEN A TRAILER HAS REACHED IT’S FILL AMOUNT

    Feed Commodities offers trailer systems to those customers that require a larger capacity waste system. These systems are self-contained, PLC operated, and come equipped with a wide range of reporting and operating options.

    Fed from the rear with an auger-style compactor, the walking floors on these 53 foot trailers are capable of self-loading to a predetermined volume or weight.

    Feed Commodities’ drivers and managers are alerted at various stages of the filling process, to ensure that the system is changed out as needed so there is always additional capacity in the system.

    The trailer system also alerts our managers of any system errors so that our local service technicians can respond quickly and appropriately to avoid prolonged downtime. To go even further, Feed Commodities builds in several layers of contingencies to make sure that our customers’ waste streams are never interrupted regardless of the nature of the breakdown.

    Please contact us with additional questions on our trailer systems.

    DUMPERS

    CUSTOM MADE HYDRAULIC DUMPERS JUST FOR BUSINESS

    Feed Commodities custom manufactures our hydraulic dumpers to each specific customer application. Whether the system is designed to dump 2 feet off the ground or 18 feet, Feed Commodities will design the right system for the right application.

    These dump systems are a critical component to our mid- to larger-size waste systems, and are generally tied in to a compactor, rolloff container, or trailer system.

    They are designed specifically to accommodate the size of tote the bakery chooses to use, and to offer the lift power, height, and durability necessary to get the job done.

    The purpose of the hydraulic dumpers is to allow an operator to dump more product more efficiently and more safely than by other means. All of our dump systems are OSHA rated and designed with safety in mind.

    DATA COLLECTION

    scale-data-collection-min

    USING TECHNOLOGY IN WASTE MANAGEMENT IS PARAMOUNT TO LOWERING YOUR BOTTOM LINE

    These scales are equipped with easy-to-use indicators and a custom software (provided by Normandy Waste Management Systems) that enables our customers to track not only their waste volumes, but the sources of their waste as well.

    Data is entered into the system by an operator who weighs the waste prior to dumping it. Entering the weight activates the hydraulic dumper, enabling the operator to make the dump and ensuring that all waste is weighed.

    The data is then stored by line, product type, time and date onto the Feed Commodities’ server. Bakery personnel can extract this data using Normandy Waste Management Systems’ web-based software or via the Feed Commodities customer portal.

    All data is available on an Excel spreadsheet (or for automatic retrieval) and can be readily used for reporting or manipulating for more specific data mining. These reports also identify when a container is removed, so the tracking of specific batches is very easy-to-use.

    In addition to tracking waste streams, Feed Commodities is able to remotely monitor how full the containers are and ensure the timely arrival of our trucks.

    At Feed Commodities, we take our partnership role with our bakeries seriously, and do our best to support them in their efforts to reduce waste.
