9. What if I don't have the waste volume to justify a Qube Trailer compactor?


We recommend deploying carts to collect and store your waste stream.  Qube Waste Solutions will drive by in a pick-up truck and tip the bins into The Qube Trailer. We recommend deploying carts to collect and store your waste stream. Qube Waste Solutions will drive by in a pick-up truck and tip the bins into The Qube Trailer. This keeps heavy equipment off your property and the neighboring streets. The community enjoys less noise, traffic congestion, visual pollution, weight on the roads and most importantly carbon foot print when it utilizes the Qube Trailer.




4. What amount of power does your business require?


For compaction at a customer’s site our current equipment uses 3 phase 10-hp power. New installations can utilize single phase power. Current mobile refuse collection equipment, such as front loaders and rear loaders, use a power take off device from the engine rated at 60-80 hp. The Qube Trailer uses a mobile power unit with a 10-hp. motor.




6. How do you have a more favorable carbon foot print?


The basis for the Qube’s favorable carbon foot print is documented in questions 1, 3 and 4.




8. How do you substantiate that your method adds to the property's cleanliness?


Waste materials are emptied into the Qube Trailer using an opening at the top. The blade moves the material into the body and at the end of the cycle, the opening is sealed. The variables of airborne debris and open containers are a moot point. Waste materials are emptied into the Qube Trailer using an opening at the top. The blade moves the material into the body and at the end of the cycle, the opening is sealed. The variables of airborne debris and open containers are a moot point. This differs vastly from the process of emptying containers where waste materials from containers free fall while emptying into the front loader. Debris can become airborne. Also, there are times when the lids of the containers are left open and the container then becomes a source for birds and rodents to feed and move about uncontrolled.




5. Are you saying this is a solution for everyone with a self-contained compactor?


Today, nearly 80% of self-contained compactors emptied weekly contain only 5,000 pounds or less of waste materials. This is the sweet spot for the Qube. This is what we designed for. If a restaurant serves 200 meals a day, at 3 pounds a meal, they generate 4,200 pounds of waste a week. This is the paradigm shift. Why have a class 8 roll-off truck weighing 50,000 pounds on the streets with only 4,200 pounds of waste materials on it? This is a 50-year waste handling model that is out of date regarding our dense urban areas.

1. How does the Qube Trailer reduce traffic when it holds less weight compared to a front loader?


Open top containers commonly found behind commercial businesses require servicing several days a week. The Qube Trailer Compactor can reduce this servicing down to once per week. Open top containers commonly found behind commercial businesses require servicing several days a week. The Qube Trailer Compactor can reduce this servicing down to once per week. This greatly reduces the big refuse truck traffic from the commercial areas. The community then enjoys the Qube Trailer's environmental benefits addressing:

  • Noise
  • Traffic congestion
  • Visual pollution
  • Cleanliness
  • Weight on the roads
  • Less Carbon foot print




3. Why does the Qube Trailer require less HP?


The Qube method utilizes our raised compaction blade technology. Each compaction stroke pushes only against the material in front the blade; unlike conventional methods, where the blade continually pushes against the previous densified materials. The Qube method utilizes our raised compaction blade technology. Each compaction stroke pushes only against the material in front the blade; unlike conventional methods, where the blade continually pushes against the previous densified materials. The more in-depth answer is, we use two principles to achieve our compaction densities. The Qube Trailer's raised blade is approximately ⅓ the height of the container. The blade travels horizontally, adjacent to the roof of the container, moving or densifying materials which are only at a level of the raised blade. The materials, below the blade’s travel plane, are further densified by the pressures exerted on debris in front of the blade. Small heavy particles migrate downward, below the blade, contributing to the increase the density. As a measure of compaction density achieved, one can stand on the materials below the blade like a cement floor.




7. How is the Qube Trailer loaded?


When the Qube Trailer is at a loading dock, waste materials can be manually loaded into the hopper on top of the Qube Trailer. This meets the minimum ISHA sill loading height requirements; simple and without any gates of electrical interlocks.

When at grade, we use a tipper to lift the debris in carts up into the top opening of the Qube Trailer. ​When at grade, we use a tipper to lift the debris in carts up into the top opening of the Qube Trailer.




2. Why hasn't this been done before?


The Qube Products are an improved compaction method. It has never been practiced before commercially before now. The compaction method is ideologically the opposite of modern refuse equipment design.
