Toter, a Charlotte, North Carolina-based Wastequip brand, announced that it has introduced two new products to its full line of organics carts, containers and bins: a 32-gallon organics caster cart and a 32-gallon organics two-wheel cart with rotationally molded lids for commercial use.
These products were designed specifically to withstand the added burden of collecting heavy, wet organic waste, while being designed to fit in tight spaces. Manufactured with Toter’s proprietary Advanced Rotational Molding process to exceed American National Standards Institute (ANSI) standards (112 lbs.) for strength and durability, the carts have been load tested to withstand nearly twice the weight per gallon (200 lbs.) of competitive products, ensuring years of reliable performance even in the toughest environments, the company says. The carts also feature Rugged Rim technology, which provides extra rigidity in critical wear areas. These carts are also compatible with Toter lifters to ensure safe and easy dumping. Custom hot stamps or mold-in labels can also be added to make sorting easier.
The carts are the product of careful study of user preferences. The carts’ handle height, ergonomics, wheels and casters allow for easy maneuvering, even when full.
These new carts are part of Toter’s broader line of organics-related products, which includes:
- Organics bins: Toter’s 2-gallon and 13-gallon organics bins allow for easy collection of organics materials.
- Organics carts: Toter’s organics carts are also available in 48- and 64-gallon sizes with two wheel and optional caster wheels that eliminate the need to tip to roll, which can help prevent overexertion and workplace injuries.
- Organics front-end load containers (FELs): Toter’s lightweight but heavy-duty plastic FELs provide three times greater service life than steel containers and feature steel rod reinforcements to prevent bowing, as well a durable, single-piece lid with a trap door to keep out insects, rodents and animals, the company says.
“Given more stringent sustainability goals and requirements, food waste is one of the largest and fastest-growing components of the waste stream,” Toter Director of Product Development Jeniffer Coates says. “In addition to expanding our robust line of organics products to keep pace with growing demand, we’ve also used our expertise to create a system-based solution to make the collection, transport and storage of heavy, wet and often foul-smelling organic waste safe and easy. The breadth of Toter’s organics line and systematic approach allows customers to become more environmentally conscious while saving time and money—the ultimate win-win.”
