Dumpsters

PSSI has one to eight cubic yard dumpsters for scheduled pick up service and one time events. These bins are emptied by our frontloader trucks. They come in many styles: counterbalance, loading dock, etc. and can be used for general garbage or source separated recyclables, such as corrugated cardboard. They can come with wheels or no wheels. Black dumpsters are generally used for garbage or compostables. Green dumpsters are used to collect corrugated cardboard.
