Typical skips are sometimes not big enough to handle large volumes of waste. The largest skips go up to 12 cubic yards, which is inadequate for large projects. This is where roll-on roll-off containers come in. Roll-on roll-off containers are used to store and transport waste.
Roll-on roll-off containers come in larger sizes than typical skips such as 15 cubic yards, 20 cubic yards, 25 cubic yards, 30 cubic yards, 35 cubic yards, 40 cubic yards, 50 cubic yards, and 60 cubic yards.
Roll-on roll-off containers, also known as Ro-Ro, are ideal for large personal jobs, commercial projects, shop fittings, clearance jobs, and large-scale construction operations. Ro-Ro containers are ideal for the disposal of large volumes of light but bulky weights. The largest roll-on roll-off containers, however, can be used to dispose heavier waste.
Roll-on roll-off containers can be used for the following:
Heavy construction and demolition waste
Dry non-hazardous waste
Industrial and commercial waste
Window frames and wood waste
Large volumes of bulky waste that cannot be easily compacted
Because of their large sizes, the use of roll-on roll-off containers is usually restricted to off-road locations. If you need to buy a roll-on roll-off container, you should consider the following factors:
The Type of Roll-Off Hoist That Your Truck Has
A roll-off hoist system is found on the roll-off truck and is used to lift roll-on roll-off containers into the truck for transportation. Most roll-off trucks either have Hook-Lift hoist system, or a Roll-Off hoist.
Type of Roll-On Roll-Off Container
The right size of roll-on roll-off container depends on the kind of waste and how much weight your truck is capable of hauling. If you intend to haul heavy material such as metal or glass shaving, it’s generally advisable to use smaller containers to avoid overloading your truck. If, however, you need to dispose lighter waste such as wood shavings, you can use larger containers. The build of the roll-on roll off container will depend on what it is used for. Containers used to dispose waste in large construction sites require to be sturdily built with thicker steel walls than standard containers.
The Capacity of the Roll-Off Truck
Your roll-off truck comes with a user guide that defines the recommended roll-on roll-off container capacity depending on the axle capacity, frame construction, engine, and hoist capacities of the truck. Make sure that you stay within the stipulated limits to avoid damaging your roll-off truck.
