For medical waste processors and haulers maximizing load volume is critical to maintaining profitability. Each load that runs with packets of empty space in it is additional room for material not being used. This means more loads are run than are necessary incurring additional costs. These costs can include labor to drive the trucks, gas to run the trucks, and the additional maintenance from running the trucks more frequently.  To help medical waste processors and haulers maximize the waste material volume in their loads, WNC recommends the use of a hammer mill to reduce the size and shape of the waste to reduce the amount of unused space in each load. As a trusted partner of Schutte Hammermill our go to recommendation for a hammer mill that can handle medical waste is the WA Series Industrial Hammermills.
