The number of wheels on a trash cart can indicate a little about its functionality. Two-wheeled carts are built like wheelbarrows, and they're typically the smallest variety, designed to quickly transport smaller loads. Larger carts will have four wheels to support heavier loads, but tend to be more cumbersome.
Different color carts can add more than just aesthetic appeal. They can provide a way to separate different types of waste. For example, a blue cart could be used for transporting recyclable waste while a black one could be used for landfill waste. Another use for color coded carts is to keep them in designated parts of your facility.
- If you want to be able to lift your cart with heavy equipment, get one that is forklift compatible to make sure it can be lifted safely and easily.
- For heavier-than-usual loads, or in particularly challenging conditions, consider a heavy duty cart that can handle the most demanding loads.
- While most of these carts have slanted sides to make emptying them a little easier, others are available with straight sides. These can holder higher capacities and might be better-suited for hauling bulky items like landscaping materials and linens.
- Tilting trash carts can be tilted forward to easily empty their contents.
- Towable carts can be hitched to equipment and pulled. Most of these are also trainable, meaning they can be connected to each other and pulled in a series.
