It's In The Bag!

Want a little secret to keep all the materials in your container plus cut your cleanout time?

Schofield Sales & Solutions dumpster liners! Increase efficiency in time, increase container life, and installation is simple. These liners can be used as an aide to haul sludge, asbestos, dust, as well as environmental cleaning to make your workday easier. Plus, with no leaks, you will have one less DOT regulation to worry about on your daily commute.

Determining which liner to use

What type of liner will work the best for your application? Some questions need to be asked on determining the proper liner. 1. What type of material will this container haul at the jobsite? 2. Is there going to be construction material or aggregates too heavy and sharp for a liner? like cinder blocks, bricks, or scrap steel? 3. What type of water content will there be if you are hauling sludge? 4. Is it a special waste that’s unhealthy to breathe in? i.e. Friable or non-friable. 5. Do you want the plastic to overhang the side of the container? How much overhang is required.

Dimensional sizing of the container and liner are critical for the best results. Mil thickness will be a function of what type of materials you are hauling. Answering these questions will help narrow down the wide range of choices. We can assist in making recommendations for you.

Polyethylene Liners

Polyethylene liners are the most common to use. Dumpster liners, are very similar to garbage bags you use at your house every day. These liners can be form-fitted and come in several sizes and thicknesses to fit your specific needs. Commonly used in the waste industry, polyethylene liners help transport wet or dry waste such as water treatment sludge and encapsulating asbestos demolition loads. This style of liner can also assist in odor control, leak protection and preventing materials from freezing to the sidewalls of the container. A polyethylene liner ensures that containers remain cleaner, the washout costs are lower, and the life of the container is increased.

Woven Coated Polypropylene Liners

Woven polypropylene bags are stronger than polyethylene bags. These bags can be utilized for special wastes like asbestos, high temperature applications, etc. These liners can help reduce some of the risks. Because we can design these bags to fully close, we can cut down on the particulate in the air that workers would be exposed to by breathing. We can also design these bags to have loading spouts, where the liners can be loaded by a chute system above the container saving labor hours and small packaging costs to the company. Woven coated polypropylene liners are also used to contain odorous materials, metal shavings, grinding dust and powders.

Dewatering Liners

These liners are used to separate solid and liquid phases of sludge. Depending on the requirements, you may choose from several micron options (130, 250, 400, etc.). With the use of a larger micron dewatering liner, bigger solids can be separated at a faster rate. Smaller micron liners filter smaller particles, but take longer to separate the liquids from the solids. When the dewatering is complete, the disposable liner and remaining solids are now ready for disposal which eliminates further solidification costs. These liners can also be used in sludge applications such as industrial, cooling, paint and in settling ponds.

Cleaner Containers

Different terminology for describing these bags vary. Bladder bags, dumpster liners, dewatering liners, drawstring liners, can cause confusion in different markets and territories. The main reason for these products is to save you money. Any of these liners will give you cleaner containers, faster dumps, reduce washout costs, and extend the life of your container. All while having simple and easy installation.
