Front End Loader

Front End Loaders (FEL) are ideal for those who produce large volumes of dry waste. Front End Loading waste collection units are lockable steel bins with easily operated lids. Front End Loaders are static bins and are not easily moved without industrial lifting equipment. The Front End Loading system offers significant accessibility advantages over Rear End Loaders.

Designed for significant volumes of waste, Front End Loaders are used to collect and dispose of the following waste types:

  • General waste
  • Dry Mixed Recycling
  • Single Stream Recycling
  • Compactable industrial and commercial waste
  • Not suitable for glass
  • Not suitable for hazardous waste
