Holy Dumpster Batman!

I was on my way to the job yesterday morning, and while stopped at a traffic light I happened to notice the large truck beside me. The bin is leaky!

It's one of the larger disposal companies in our area. That thing was welded/bashed in and generally looked done in.

I really wonder if it would stop drywall swill from leaking out? I mean it rains ten months of the year here, and snow's the other two.

I'll try and get a pic of the dumpster I have at my personal home right now.

It looks like it was dropped on it's side, and there are holes that I can put my foot through.

What ever you do don't load it over the sides though. Something may fall out.

Re: Holy Dumpster Batman!

Hey the DMV is only concerned about the vehicle not having holes in the body, not the load it's carrying

Re: Holy Dumpster Batman!

Dumpsters are used and abused, especially on commercial sites. Guys will use skylifts to move them around, often punching holes in them...

Re: Holy Dumpster Batman!

i'd say weld a plate of steel on either side or both, call it a day and it's out for rent again.
