Compaction reduces waste sent to landfills

  • Long-lived LSA dry waste ends up at RSO's waste compactor.

  • The compactor reduces the volume of dry waste via 84,000 lbs. of compaction.

  • LSA boxes are opened and the inner bag is removed.

  • The box itself will eventually be surveyed for contamination and, if clean, will be recycled.

  • The inner bag is then placed in a steel drum and compacted into the drum.

  • Any residual liquids that have been put into the bag will squeeze out and contaminate the compactor and possibly the operator.

  • Once again, the RSO asks that nothing that can remotely be described as wet be placed into a dry waste LSA box.
