Food Waste Collection Trucks And Lifts
Travis Trailer’s Organics Trailer Tote Dumper is an all-aluminum, self-loading and unloading unit with a bucket that has 4,000 lbs lifting capacity. A battery-powered pallet jack — used to bring full containers of food waste to the truck — is transported in the bucket between stops.

Haulers, as well as manufacturers of trailers, floors and lifts used to collect and transport food waste, are experiencing growing demand for their services and equipment.

Alternate Weekly Waste Collections Work
Recyclables set out for curbside collection are segregated into multiple streams in Stirling Council, including clear glass.

In the United Kingdom, 299 out of 406 local authorities have introduced alternate weekly collection of household refuse. Many combine it with weekly collection of food waste.
