New Warranty Allows Municipalities to Reduce Costs,
Improve User Satisfaction and Enhance Sustainability Efforts
CHARLOTTE, N.C. [February 9, 2016] – Toter, a Wastequip brand, and the nation’s leading manufacturer of two-wheel carts for curbside collection of waste, recycling, and organics, has recently launched the industry’s longest product warranty. Good on all Toter two-wheel carts sold to municipal or waste hauling company customers, the new 12-year cart body warranty, is two years longer than that offered by any of the company’s competitors, allowing municipal customers to save money and significantly decrease their total cost of ownership through significantly longer replacement cycles. The 12-year warranty covers the cart body; all other cart components are covered up to 10 years.
Produced through a patented, stress-free molding technology known as Advanced Rotational Molding, which offers the industry’s highest strength-to-weight ratio, Toter carts are tougher and more durable than their injection-molded counterparts. This process not only ensures a longer service life (15-20+ years on average), but uses less plastic than other manufacturers, allowing municipalities to better address their sustainability efforts.
“Because Toter works closely with municipalities throughout the country, we know that there is unprecedented pressure on them to do more with less, to decrease costs and to reduce their carbon footprints,” said Jim Pickett, vice president of Toter sales. “Our products and warranty are designed to address those needs head-on. Our carts are designed to be tougher and to last longer, which means they need to be replaced less often – reducing the hassle of calls and complaints, keeping old carts out of landfills and saving time and money.”
While many municipalities allow their waste management providers to select their trash cart vendors, an increasing number of municipalities have chosen to work directly with trash cart manufacturers to address specific requirements such as those outlined above or in response to a need for specialized carts, such as animal-proof options. Having introduced the first-ever automated curbside cart system in the 1960’s, Toter continues to lead the industry both in innovative product development and as the leading supplier of trash carts to both waste management companies and municipalities.
Toter offers convenient cooperative purchasing through National IPA, allowing municipalities to ensure a low price without the time or cost associated with going to bid.
“If you’re looking for a quick budget gain or sustainability win, we invite you to contact one of our municipal sales experts directly to learn more about what Toter can do for you,” added Pickett.
