Red Lorry, Yellow Lorry – How We Color Coded Our Dumpster Business!


Being relatively new in this dumpster business also gave us the opportunity to be creative. We have decided always to stay that way because it is what got us our success with the clients we have had so far. We also wanted to share a story with anyone who is interested in reading about the system which we have devised to make our dumpster business more organized.

Handling Toxic Waste

Sure enough, toxic waste should be labeled. It often is, but our dumpster business came up with the idea of making sure that’s toxic waste is not mistaken for anything else. Our dumpsters are not only bright yellow. But they also have called the labels and symbols. Which indicate that the contents of that particular dumpster are toxic.


In addition to that, these dumpsters are handled with special care. We have specialized staff that handles these dumpsters and what even more important is that we make sure that they are safely delivered to a place where this toxic waste can be destroyed in a safe way.

Color Coding And Recycling

Also, much of our color coding is used for recycling. We have so far collaborated with schools and kindergartens that have expressed a desire. To make specialized dumpsters that will encourage recycling in young children. It is so much easier to explain to a child that I can go into a red dumpster, and paper goes to a blue dumpster.

It’s also interesting for them because these colors are vibrant and appealing to any child or adult. Being in a dumpster business doesn’t have to take out to the color from our lives, and that is something we have kept in mind. Many of our customers have applauded this idea, and our customers of all ages love color coordinated dumpsters.

Green Is For Recycling

In our company color, green is the color of recycling. There are so many ways to reuse something, but our favorite is compost waste. We firmly encouraged the idea that compost waste should not be neglected. But rather separated in such a way that it will be reused in the best possible way. Compost waste is very valuable for farmers, and it can do wonders for any garden or piece of land.
