Self-contained compactors are one complete unitized unit intended primarily, although not exclusively, for the collection of materials where liquids are present.

This compactor is most commonly used for the disposal of wet waste. It is referred to as "self-contained" as it is a unitized unit with the compactor's charge head and container permanently attached to each other and mounted on a frame style understructure to match the hauler's truck. The compactor is unitized to control liquid. It can be activated in a variety of ways and will accommodate various hoppers and cart dumpers. When the compactor is full the hauler pulls the entire unit onto the truck, normally from the charge chamber end, hauls it to the disposal site, and opens the rear discharge door to empty the contents. It is then returned to its home location.
