What is a front lift bin?

A front lift bin, also known as a front load bin or front loader bin, is a type of commercial waste bin used for collecting and disposing solid waste. These bins are commonly used in commercial and industrial settings and for some residential waste collection systems.

Front lift bins are characterised by their design, which allows them to be easily emptied by specialised waste collection vehicles. These bins typically have a lid on the top and two lids on the front that open from the middle. The waste collection truck is equipped with hydraulic arms or forks at the front of the vehicle, which is used to grab and lift the front of the bin, empty its contents into the truck’s compactor, and then return the bin to the ground.

Front lift bins come in various sizes and capacities to suit different waste generation needs. They are often used for general waste, recycling, or organic waste collection. These bins are durable and designed to withstand the rigours of waste collection, making them a practical choice for businesses and organisations that produce significant amounts of waste.
