    We all have pulled a compactor with a diaper on it. Lets face it, it is almost impossible to keep everything in them during transport to the landfill. It is almost stressful sometimes and very unsafe. Anyone have any thoughts about this?

    No, I can't say I have any real profound thoughts about diapers. Can you add a few details?

    He’s taking about the boxes attached to a compactor that gets swapped out by the roll off trucks. The diaper being the tarp that covers the hole where it attaches to compactor.

    Never understood that myself. It seems the design of that type of roll off is designed to make it impossible to keep from getting trash everywhere.

    We used to put a couple of pallets in and compact them before can was unhooked.
    Worked well and did not have the mess on the ground anymore.
