Why APPI:  Over the course of the Cleveland Indians’ season, approximately 2 million people will make their way to Progressive Field to take in a game.  While there, they will discard millions of hot dog wrappers, hamburger trays, beverage cups, popcorn boxes and countless napkins into the trash collection system at the stadium.

When the trash reaches the compactors, that’s where Joseph Amberik has specified Columbia WG7500 AC electric waste compactor winches to pull the dumpsters back into position after the bales have been picked up by trucks.  He’s been using them for many years now and says they are a key part of keeping the stadium clean and debris free.
