    Capacity and Size: Consider the volume of waste generated in your establishment to determine the appropriate capacity for your trash cans and trucks. Choose trash cans and trucks in various sizes to accommodate different areas and waste disposal needs within your facility.

    Material and Durability: Look for trash cans and trucks made from durable materials such as high-density polyethylene (HDPE) or stainless steel. These materials are resistant to rust, corrosion, and impact damage. Consider the environment in which the trash cans and trucks will be used. For outdoor use, select models that are UV-resistant and weatherproof.

    Lids and Openings: Determine the lid type based on your waste management requirements. Common lid options include swing lids, hinged lids, and dome tops. Consider trash cans and trucks with convenient openings like flaps, hinged doors, or hands-free pedal-operated mechanisms for ease of use and to prevent odors.

    Mobility and Maneuverability: If you require mobility for waste collection, choose trash cans and trucks with wheels. Look for sturdy wheels that can handle the weight of the trash and navigate different surfaces. Consider trash cans and trucks with ergonomic handles or grips for easy pushing, pulling, and maneuvering, especially in tight spaces.

    Easy Cleaning and Maintenance: Look for trash cans and trucks with smooth surfaces and rounded corners that are easy to clean and sanitize. Consider models with removable lids or hinged openings for convenient waste disposal and easier cleaning access.

    Recycling and Sorting: If you have specific recycling needs, consider trash cans and trucks with color-coded or labeled lids to promote proper waste segregation. Look for trash cans and trucks that allow for easy attachment of recycling symbols or labels for clear identification.
