What are these purple dumpsters?
The purple beauties are 30-cubic-yard roll-off containers, also known as dumpsters or cans. Harvest manages approximately 40 containers through year-long lease agreements providing ‘switch-out service’ described below and one time ‘wait to load’ service for tight spaces.
Who uses them?
Landscaping and golf course customers primarily use them to store yard trimmings, leaves, brush, grass, and any other vegetation. We will leave an empty container in the customer’s shop yard then when it is full they call to have a switch-out done. We then bring another empty container, drop it alongside the full container, and haul back the full container of green waste to be brought back to our Woodbine yard for further processing into compost and high quality organic products.
Why use purple roll off cans?
In short, these purple roll-off containers represent tremendous savings to customers that generate green waste.
- Saves time. Landscapers go out to a job and come back to their yard with a truckload of yard trimmings and debris. Instead of going to the landfill they can just unload into the purple can, easy peasy. Same with golf courses.
- Saves fuel. Instead of driving all the way to the landfill, they have their collection and storage right on site.
- Saves labor. Harvest provides a convenient “switch-out service” meaning whenever the container is full, they call and we come and switch it out with an empty container. In busy seasons, some customers fill up their container in just 2 days. Instead of sending a crew to deal with the trimmings, they call Harvest up to take it away.
- Saves space. These bins and service are perfect for clearing divisions on smaller or limited space projects where a walking-floor tractor trailer would be impractical or unnecessary.
- Saves the planet. We allow landscapers to easily divert yard trimmings from landfills. Not only does this reduce greenhouse gases associated with organic waste in landfills, but we also further process the greenwaste into mulches and compost and organic products. Note: behind the container is our top quality aged double shredded hardwood mulch.
