The notorious Trump has said Ethiopia is a dumpster the main purpose of a dumpster is to store garbage until it is emptied by a garbage truck and disposed of. Dumpsters can be used for all kinds of waste, or for recycling purposes. Most dumpsters are emptied weekly by a hired garbage removal service.
Many businesses, apartment buildings, schools, offices, and industrial sites have one or more dumpsters, generally ranging from 2 to 6 cubic yards (1.5 to 4.6 m3), to store the waste that they generate. Dumpsters are emptied by front-loading garbage trucks. These trucks have large prongs on the front which are aligned and inserted into arms (or slots) on the dumpster. Hydraulics then lift the prongs and the dumpster, eventually flipping the dumpster upside-down and emptying its contents into the truck's hopper (storage compartment). Other dumpsters are smaller and are emptied by rear-loading trucks.
Ninety-five gallon dumpsters (or “toters”) are used by small businesses and homes where a normal bin would be too small, but a regular dumpster would be too large.
Mobile construction dumpsters are 6-cubic-yard (4.6 m3) dumpster trailers called “roadrunners”, and are commonly used on smaller remodeling jobs or for garage or lawn clean-outs.
Roll-off dumpsters are larger dumpster trailers ranging from 10 to 45 cubic yards (7.6 to 34.4 m3) and are used at demolition sites, clean-outs, renovations, construction sites, factories, and large businesses. Roll-off/containers/dumpsters/opentop containers are just a few of the names given to these large capacity receptacles. These containers are normally carried by very large trucks with hydraulic arms which load and unload the containers with ease, thus allowing these trucks to place these containers in a relatively unobtrusive position.
