The 3 key advantages of a rollonoff container that could improve waste management on your site
Businesses from varying industry sectors can (and do) benefit from having a rollonoff container on their site.
Whether you’re working at a school, a hospital, or on a major construction site – a rollonoff container just might be the ideal solution for you.
So what is it about rollonoffs that make them a beneficial option for businesses? How could a rollonoff help your site? We’ve pinpointed the 3 advantages of our rollonoff container that could improve your onsite waste management.
Knowing these key elements can help you to decide whether or not your business would benefit by making the switch to a rollonoff container on your site.
Health & safety remains high on many business’s agendas and a rollonoff container can give you that extra security you might require for your site. All rollonoffs are enclosed and lockable so that you can have the added benefit of knowing the container on your site (and the waste inside it) is safe and secure.
This is especially important for sensitive sites, such as schools and hospitals where the containers are in public areas. It’s also important for sites that might have sensitive waste materials, such as clinical waste at a hospital, that needs to be stored safely.
How could this help your site?
a) You will have more control over who puts what into your container. This minimises the risk of contamination from hazardous or non-conforming waste types and also the potential risk of overfilling your waste container.
b) The ability to lock your container will also help to prevent theft and stop unauthorised people from putting their own waste in your container. This means you can be secure in the knowledge that the waste going into your container is from your site alone and that it hasn’t become a community free-for-all.
c) With an enclosed, lockable rollonoff, your materials will be sheltered from the elements. If you are working on a site where wind is an issue, this will prevent waste from being scattered around your site, which could pose a health and safety risk.
Is your site producing a high quantity of waste? If so, a regular skip would need to be exchanged a lot more frequently. A rollonoff container is a great solution for giving you the higher storage capacity you need.
The ability to store more waste can help to reduce the number of container exchanges you will need. This can result in a more cost-effective solution for your business because you won’t require as many services for your waste container.
Whilst rollonoffs are typically double the size of an average builders skip, it can store up to 4x more waste than a builders skip. With so much more capacity, this means you can make the most use out of the space you have on your site.
This is particularly ideal for smaller construction sites where space is limited or sites that want to have multiple waste containers for onsite waste segregation.
As we mentioned, a high-capacity container will allow you to store more waste over a longer period of time, reducing the frequency of exchanges required by your site. This minimises the number of vehicles moving on and off your site, which helps with health & safety and also reduces your carbon footprint.
If you are producing large quantities of waste from different waste streams, onsite segregation could be an ideal solution for your site. A rollonoff container gives you 4x more capacity than an average builders skip, whilst only taking 2x space on your site, meaning you could save more space on your site for additional waste containers.
Depending on the variation of waste streams being produced on your site, having an effective onsite segregation system can help improve your environmental impact. The added security of a rollonoff container will also come in handy for this, as you will have extra control over what waste goes where to avoid contaminating waste streams.
