Front loader service is one of the most common types of commercial waste removal service. A business rents a container from a waste removal company, for varying lengths of time. Some companies may rent these out on a monthly basis; others may use three, four, six, or twelve month contracts. It’s worth checking with the company you’re interested in so you can work out what kind of contract will be best for your needs. The business also then schedules a service day (or multiple service days, if necessary) for the waste removal company to come and empty the container.
These front loader containers generally sit in an alley or parking lot behind a business. A specific type of front loader truck then comes on the agreed service days and uses automated “arms” at the front of the truck to lift the container and dump its contents into the truck. Then the container is placed back where it was, so the business can continue to use it, and the truck continues on to the next container. The process is very quick – usually less than thirty seconds per container. This is a huge improvement from the older style rear loaders, which could take several minutes to empty thoroughly.
Another benefit of front loaders when compared to other waste container types is that they have a comparatively small footprint. A front load dumpster takes up less ground room than a rear load style of the same size, which can be a huge benefit, especially if your business has some limitations on space. A larger capacity container also means that you may be able to have fewer pick-ups, which can be a money-saver, as well!
Front load containers are best used where there’s enough space for the truck to approach them straight on, so that the container can be picked up and lifted smoothly. It is important to make sure that the service has enough room for their trucks to maneuver, though this is generally reasonably easy to do, and the service provider can help determine how best to do this.
This type of container also comes in a wide range of sizes, which means that your business can make sure to get the best fit for your needs. The sizes are measured in cubic yards, and generally come in a range from two to eight cubic yards, though this may vary from company to company.
Front loaders are ideal for general waste; paper, plastic, or cardboard waste; recyclables (if the company offers recycle service in addition to trash removal); and generally most trash associated with commercial businesses. It isn’t ideal for construction and demolition materials, or large quantities of heavy materials like concrete, brick, dirt, or metal, so if your business is likely to have much waste of those types, another solution may be better, however most commercial businesses won’t run into many limitations in that regard.
