U-Pak’s Ground Hog System For Waste Management In Toronto Makes The Most Of Limited Space.

Waste management in Toronto can be tough for businesses that have limited space to store the trash until collection day. U-Pak is addressing that problem head on with our Ground Hog waste management system.

Ground Hog takes advantage of the space under the soil surface to provide a large waste container that doesn’t take up too much room topside. It’s the perfect solution to problems like limited height space, odor, or trouble with animals getting into the trash.

Space-Saving Design.

Ground Hog is a cylindrical waste container that sits partially underground. The large capacity containers measure 8.16 ft. high by 6.6 ft. in diameter. Slightly more than 4 feet of the container is situated beneath the surface of the soil with the remainder of the container visible above ground.

Stabilized on a concrete base, gravel, and anchor beam then backfilled with soil, sand and gravel, Ground Hog sits securely in its base until trash collection day. With just under 4 feet of the container visible above ground, Ground Hog is much more easily accessible to users than standard 6-foot high dumpsters and it works just like any other front-loading waste container. The design is compatible with current trash collection trucks and can be used for trash, recycling, or organic waste.

Advantages Of Ground Hog Waste Management In Toronto.

Ground Hog has significant implications for waste management in Toronto. Not only does Ground Hog reduce the amount of surface space needed to store trash receptacles, it is convenient and easy to use. Other benefits include:

  • Lower height makes it easier for users to access the lid and place waste inside the container.
  • Secure lids keep trash in and animals out.
  • Odor reduction, thanks to its underground storage capacity.
  • Reduced maintenance since much of the container is not exposed to the elements or vandalism.
  • Reduced likelihood of ground contamination and debris.
  • Large capacity may allow for reduced collection frequency.
  • Aesthetically appealing.
