Front-end load containers work best for businesses that generate high-volume, low-density waste materials that can be compacted, such as office waste and food products.
The versatile containers used in this waste-collection system range from 2 to 8 cubic yards and often are combined to give customers the correct capacity for their waste volumes.
Many containers are designed with low-profile, top-loading configurations, while other containers open from both sides and from the top as well. Special sizes and types of containers for unusual accumulation situations, easy rolling casters for mobility, and varying heights for dock-level loading also are available.
The following materials cannot be collected in front-end containers: asbestos, batteries, hazardous waste, liquids, paints, oils, medical waste, tires and appliances containing chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs).
Benefits of Republic Services’ Front-End Load Waste Services:

Saves labor—Workers clump waste into a large, conveniently located container, no bags to fuss with, no mess to clean up.
Aids pest control—With waste enclosed in a covered steel container, insects, rodents and other pests are less likely to be attracted.
