About Toter

Toter® introduced its first product in the 1960s: an automated cart system for curbside garbage collection. Since then, Toter has been recognized as the leading manufacturer of two-wheeled carts for curbside automated waste, recycling and organics collection by cities, private waste haulers and recyclers. Today, Toter is the top-selling cart brand for the curbside collection of waste, recycling, and organics, and manufactures organics carts, caster carts, stationary containers, front-load containers, tilt trucks, cart lifters, and more for a variety of markets. In 2007, Toter joined the Wastequip family, the leading North American manufacturer of waste handling and recycling equipment.

The Patented Process That Makes a Toter® Cart a Toter Cart.

Toter's engineers and designers developed—and patented—a revolutionary breakthrough in rotational molding known as Advanced Rotational Molding™. It’s how we were able to create the world's toughest carts.

Advanced Rotational Molding™ eliminates built-in stress, weakness and brittleness associated with injection molded products. In addition, Toter’s use of linear medium density polyethylene (MDPE) is specifically engineered for toughness and high-impact resistance. In contrast, injection-molded carts are made with high density polyethylene (HDPE), which is rigid, brittle and offers poor impact resistance.
