A lot of businesses and homes are used to utilizing regular rear load containers for waste recycling and materials; however, there are numerous reasons to consider using a front load container on your residential, commercial, or industrial property.
First off, front load containers have a smaller footprint, which takes up less space on a property than a same-capacity rear load container; for instance, a 6-yd front load container is about 5’ in length, whereas a 6-yd rear load container is two times this length – almost 10’! This means Plum Creek Environmental can position a bigger capacity front load container within the same space as a rear load container of a smaller capacity. In some instances, front load containers will fit into a space that won’t accommodate a read load container, whatsoever!
Of course, larger capacity containers mean less trips to a waste processing center and this may add up to some significant savings over the course of one year for many organizations and businesses. Not just will front load containers of the exact same size require less visits to the waste center, they additionally take less time to empty out. For instance, we’re able to empty any size front load container within roughly 30 seconds, whereas a small rear load container will take almost eight times longer – roughly 3 to 5 minutes (a big rear load container may take almost 10 minutes to empty out).
This may not seem like a long period of time to you, yet having a diesel truck that is idling outside of your building for a long time instead of less than a minute will mean having less diesel fumes entering your windows and door. Also, less truck idling time will mean less fuel used. So, what’s the end result? Lower fuel consumption, more container capacity within less space for fewer trips, and smaller carbon footprint and space.
