BeaconTechnology.com Tip: Industrial worksites generate tons of trash – every single day. You need to keep the area clean for both safety and efficiency and self-dumping, stackable and towable industrial hoppers are the best way to manage your waste and keep it under control.
The welded construction of the largest metal industrial hoppers make them safe for ripped-out sheet rock that's been studded with nails, but the self-dumping hoppers, which automatically dump when a bumper makes contact, can also be used for loading bulk materials into the beds of trucks. Some hoppers come with casters, so they can be moved to the area where they're most needed and smaller portable hoppers (like enormous wheelbarrows) let you circle a work site and collect as you go.
But their most important attribute is simply keeping it clean. For safety's sake, work sites should be swept at least daily, as the debris accumulates. Because they can be emptied daily, hoppers keep work sites clear of clutter, streamlining the job process and minimizing risk to workers because of stray matter.
