OUR Plastic dumpsters stand up to abuse—day-in and day-out
Waste management is a tough, demanding job. It takes a toll on your people and a beating on your equipment. Our plastic dumpsters are changing the game.
Made from 100% high-density polyethylene, our durable, lightweight dumpsters offer significant benefits over their steel counterparts. They:
- Weigh less than steel dumpsters—making them easier to move and easier on your operators’ backs
- Don’t rust or corrode—wet waste won’t eat through your containers
- Are low maintenance—they’re dent and fade resistant
- Are graffiti-resistant—just clean them up with a little paint thinner
- Dump cleanly
- Are much quieter than steel dumpsters
We’ve designed and manufactured these plastic dumpsters to stand up to abuse: Heavy loads, temperature extremes, drivers that “lack finesse,” you name it.
Shopping your options? Here are some critical considerations to keep in mind.
We were the first plastic dumpster manufacturer in the industry.
In fact, we’ve been manufacturing our Poly Dura Kan brand products for 20 years now.
And, over the years, we’ve worked to continuously improve our products to serve you better.
Here are a few design features that have dramatically increased the durability and value of our lightweight plastic dumpsters.
How do our plastic dumpsters stand up to the competition?
|COMPONENT||TYPICAL PLASTIC DUMPSTER||POLY DURA KAN||NEDLAND ADVANTAGE|
|Body||Smooth-sided container||Ribbed container||Ribs reinforce the body structure for added strength|
|Belly pans||None||Standard||Belly pans reinforce the bottom of your dumpster for added rigidity and strength|
|Pockets||Plastic pockets with metal insert||Large metal pockets||Larger metal pockets won’t crack or break-off when drivers beat them up|
|Caster channels||Not recessed||Recessed||Recessed caster channels provide added strength|
|Frame||None; bolted bracket connects lid||Top frame||Steel rails reinforce your dumpster for strength and to prevent breakage|
|Color||Brown, black, blue, or green||Custom colors||Limitless color options enable you to choose plastic dumpsters that align with your brand|
Our rotational molding process allows us to lay down the polyethylene in layers.
That means your plastic dumpsters won’t contain air bubbles, which would weaken the structure.
In fact, you can pull on our rotationally-molded products and they’ll bounce back.
All of our Poly Dura Kans are manufactured with this rotational molding process.
With injection molding, the polyethylene is forced into a mold—in just the same way army soldier toys are manufactured. While some of our competitors use this process to cut costs, injection molding introduces air bubbles and results in a more brittle product.
Our plastic dumpsters need to be tough, so we manufacture them from virgin, high-density polyethylene.
Lids, of course, don’t require the same degree of strength. So, we manufacture them from the container scrap—what’s called “regrind.” Meaning, our lids are made from recycled materials—an important consideration for some of our customers.
We offer a 5-year warranty on our plastic dumpsters—the longest in the industry.
That’s how confident we are in our materials, product design, and manufacturing process.
