Landfill Compaction

In the Spring of 2020, Kavanaugh purchased an 816F Series 2 CAT Landfill Compactor, that we fittingly named “Thor”. You’ll currently find this mighty machine compacting at the City of Yellowknife Solid Waste Facility. Our experienced operators use specialized waste compaction methods to successfully crush and compress the existing waste in the landfill cells. The compactor performance has been very successful as we work, alongside the City of Yellowknife SWF staff, to increase landfill capacity and reduce costs.

We look forward to bringing “Thor” to other community landfills in the NWT to assist in waste compaction and extend landfill life.
