If you need an industrial hopper for transporting or dumping waste or trash, be sure to select a model advertised with leak-proof construction. Regardless of whether or not you have consumer trash and non-EPA regulated waste, or if you are using an industrial hopper to transport properly bagged and identified workplace discards such as empty detergent bottles or eyewash containers, a leakproof container is still critical.
Preventing unidentified spills will save much grief in the workplace. Hazmat control is critical and even a puddle of water can become a cause for concern if it is suspected of being something more. Avoid work stoppage and unnecessary hazmat cleanup procedures by using leakproof containers.
