Front-lift bins are generally large steel bins that come in 1.5m³, 3m³ and 4.5m³ sizes. Front-lift bins are one of the most cost effective and robust collection systems and commonly used by small businesses where the bins can be emptied without worrying about overhead collisions with wires or other structures.
Front lift collections are performed where the bins are lifted over the front of the vehicle by hydraulic arms that weigh the bin, emptying waste overhead before being compacted within the vehicle body. Once the vehicle is full, it is transported for disposal via a transfer station to a local landfill or directly to a recycling facility.
