Abstract:

The purpose of this effort was to provide a waste disposal unit which would improve waste handling in the Garrison Dining Facility encompassing both the waste generated in the kitchen as well as the tray waste from the dining area. The primary objective was to improve appearance and sanitation of the facility and generate a product which could be disposed of more conveniently. To accomplish this, a heavy duty horizontal compactor was designed and fabricated to essentially reduce the volume of total waste deposited in dumpsters or containers or picked up by contractors. The unit compacts in its chamber, and upon reaching a given size, the compacted slug is ejected into a specially designed castered container or dumpster. The compacted waste in the container is then treated with ozone to deodorize it.
