REFUSE

Refuse containers must meet some pretty tough requirements: they must be durable enough to last for years, they must be deter insects and varmint, and they must be impervious to cleaning and sanitizing agents. In addition, they must perform through long term exposure to solid waste, extremes in temperature (-20° to 120° F.) and extended exposure to the sun’s ultraviolet radiation.

OVERVIEW

Dura-Cast produces a line of refuse containers that meets these requirements because they’re manufactured with rotomolded high density polyethylene that ensures strength and durability. Regardless of size, our refuse containers are designed to provide many years of reliable use.

40, 60, & 90 GALLON ROLL-OUTS

DuraCast 40 Gallon Refuse ContainerThe 40, 60, and 90 gallon Automated Roll-Out Containers are designed for easy pickup by all fully-automated trucks. The automated trucks allow for reduced labor and injury costs, and increased speed and efficiency. All three containers can be lifted by the same automatic lifter without additional adjustment.DuraCast Poly-wheels

Rotomolded of tough polyethylene, the containers can withstand the harshest of treatment, are resilient to tearing and cracking, and will still look good after years of use. A built-in ultra-violet agent protects against the the sun, preventing the  containers from becoming brittle over time.

These Roll-Out Containers never need to be painted and will not crack, dent, or rust. Smooth inside walls ensure refuse is dumped cleanly to minimize call backs.

PRODUCT DESIGN

Refuse containers operate in challenging environments, where they must survive lifting mechanisms, over-filling, dropping, and rough handling. Rotomolded containers are tougher than injection molded containers because extra material is built into critical wear areas for additional durability. These stronger areas minimize cracking and splitting, which translates into a longer service life.

The lid is lightweight for easy opening, stays open for loading convenience, and closes automatically with minimal noise when set back on the ground after DuraCast 90 Gallon Refuse Containerdumping. Domed top and sloping edges help prevent moisture from entering the container, keeping odors inside and animals and rodents outside. Axle is positioned for easy tilting and rolling with heavy DuraCast molded-in graphicsloads.
