The commercial dumpsters are one of the most common dumpsters we observe at places like the parking lots, restaurants, and the gas stations. These types of dumpsters are generally rented on a permanent base and have a regular plan of pickup from the dump trucks. The dump trucks haul off the debris and trash away.
A typical commercial dumpster has a lid which helps in the reduction of odors, repelling off the pests, and keeping out the environmental elements. The commercial dumpsters are divided into two categories.
Front Load Dumpster
Just like the name suggests, the front load dumpsters are loaded into the truck from their front. They usually have a top slanting downwards, thus allowing the dropping in of the trash. The dumpster also carries slots on all sides, and these slots are designed for the dump truck for the insertion of its prongs for lifting overhead the dumpster.
The front-load dumpsters provide two to eight cubic yards of capacity and are a very convenient alternative for waste disposal. Their slanted front and compact design allow for the waste to be conveniently deposited.
Rear Load Dumpster
Unlike the front load dumpster, the rear load dumpsters have extended poles and a slanted back. The contents of the trash are dumped inside the truck via a hinge and winch system. In contrast to the overhead movement, in this type, the truck has to manually hook on the dumpster. It then starts pulling the trash in an upward motion for the falling in of the junk.
Due to this rear slant design, the rear load dumpsters are more difficult for the dumping of waste. However, they have a greater capacity for holding the trash, and the great design has the ability to fit into small places.
