Employee Killed When Caught In Trash Compactor

On December 9, 2002, Employee #1took a rolling trash cart to be dumped into the Marathon Self-Contained Compactor, Model RJ-250SC, Serial Number 121833, with a cart tilter, owned and serviced by BFI. A coworker found Employee # 1 caught between the cart tipper frame and the tipper box. Employee #1 sustained multiple injuries that led to asphyxia and death. The control valve for the cart tipper was not working correctly. It was designed to be a sustained-manual-pressure device. The busted control valve allowed a downward movement of the cart dumper when the manual pressure was released.
