CHECK OUT OUR NEW CHARLEVOIX BINS!
Currently only located in Charlevoix, we are experimenting with new bins that are designed for cost efficiency and safety. These new units are sized 2 to 1 over our older green models. The new models are smaller allowing a truck to dump on the spot and the ability to dump multiple units at a time. This results in less transporation time, mileage, and expense. The second feature of our new trial bins, is SAFETY. Always a top concern, the newer, rounded configuration - "porthole" shape some may say - are configured in a way that assists in limiting "dumpster diving", which can easily result in injury. So, although they are 1/2 the size, there are twice the number, and although holes are reconfigured, they are safer. Overall we are excited about the results of our trial program in Charlevoix.
