VERNON, AL (June 1, 2015) Marathon, the leader of onsite waste compaction and recycling systems, debuts the Marathon AST-220 Auger Stationary Compactor, a stationary compactor that allows users to do more. From superior payloads of old corrugated containers to ease of dumping, productivity and efficiency shine in this design.


The Marathon AST-220 Auger Stationary Compactor is part of Environmental Solutions Group’s (ESG) commitment to improving its customers’ bottom lines through innovation and technology.


“The Marathon AST-220 Auger Stationary Compactor has been designed to provide improved performance on OCC for retail and other industrial applications,” says James Robbins, Director of Stationary Products with Marathon. “Increased payloads, ease of dumping, ease of maintenance, durability and environmental benefits are just a few of the features of this innovative compactor. The AST-220 is a proven design originally developed by Marathon’s dealer in Australia, who is the leader in their market and has had hundreds of successful units operating for many years.”


Technology That Makes a Difference:

  • Ideal for retail and light industrial applications
  • Increased payloads of OCC
  • Compacted loads are easier to dump due to “shredding action”
  • No hydraulics or hydraulic oil
  • No cylinder cavity to clean and maintain
  • Short rear structure to make the auger ideal for dock applications
  • Ideal for rear feed security chutes
  • Excellent solution for improved environmental impact
  • Ultra quiet operation
  • Manufactured in Marathon’s Vernon, Ala., factory (available from Phoenix, Ariz., factory later in 2015)


The Marathon AST-220 Auger Stationary Compactor will debut at WasteExpo, and Marathon will be taking orders for fulfillment in late June/early July 2015. For more information about how to make the AST-220 part of your operation, contact your Marathon dealer.
